# Help needed displaying multiple plots (and maybe preassigning too)

Help needed displaying multiple plots (and maybe preassigning too) I've got this script, but when I try add x and y labels it returns error codes. How would I go about putting two plots on one graph? I want to make three graphs, all with f on the x axis and then with z, R and AbsCoef as the three different y axis values. On each of these I want to have two plots - one regular and one with the 'nogap' tag. There's also something happening where Matlab is suggesting that I preallocate - and I don't know what that is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

iter=1;

for f=50:1000

rho_a=1.2041;

sigma=11000;

phi=0.99;

alpha=1;

c=343.26;

i=sqrt(-1);

L=0.1;

a=0.03;

k_a=(2*pi*f)/c;

k_2=((2*pi*f)/c)*sqrt(alpha-((i*sigma*phi)/(2*pi*f*rho_a)));

z_c_2=((rho_a*c)/phi)*sqrt(alpha-((i*sigma*phi)/(2*pi*f*rho_a)));

z_1=(z_c_2*cot(k_2*L)*(cos(k_a*a)+(i/(rho_a*c))*sin(k_a*a)))/(i*cos(k_a*a)-(1/(rho_a*c))*sin(k_a*a));

z_1rec(iter)=z_1;

z_1nogap=-i*z_c_2*cot(k_2*L);

z_1nogaprec(iter)=z_1nogap;

R=((z_1/(rho_a*c))-1)/(1+(z_1/(rho_a*c)));

Rrec(iter)=R;

AbsCoef=1-(real(R))^2;

AbsCoefrec(iter)=AbsCoef;

Rnogap=((z_1nogap/(rho_a*c))-1)/(1+(z_1nogap/(rho_a*c)));

Rnogaprec(iter)=Rnogap;

AbsCoefnogap=1-(real(Rnogap))^2;

AbsCoefnogaprec(iter)=AbsCoefnogap;

iter=iter+1;

end

plot(50:1000,z_1rec)

For the preallocation:

Before the loop, use

niter = 1000-50+1;

z_1rec = zeros(niter,1);

Rnogaprec = zeros(niter,1);

doc hold %allows you to have more than one plot on a axes

doc subplot %if you want more than one axes on a figure

Please read the documentation I supplied and try to improve your code with it, any further question can be answered here, good luck with it.
