Plotting 3 matrix vs range curves

Hi everyone,
I have 3 sets of parameter data that I'm attempting to plot against a range of thickness values from 1nm-1um. I have attempted multiple ways of doing this but I believe this way is the closest to retrieving the answer:
a = [1e-10 7e-10 8e-10];
b = [10e-6 10e-6 10e-6];
for t = 1e-9:1e-9:1000e-9,
Rf = pcu./(w.*t);
plot(t,Rf),title('Rf vs. t'),xlabel('t'),ylabel('Rf')
If anyone could give any suggestions or let me know if I'm close to the answer then I'd appreciate it!

I don't know what the values of pcu or w are, but here's a simplification that works fine.
t = 1e-9:1e-9:1000e-9;
Rf = (2.*t);
plot(t,Rf),title('Rf vs. t'),xlabel('t'),ylabel('Rf');
I don't see a need for the for loop in your code. The dot operations will take care of element-wise multiplication and division.
If you have three separate calculations for t and Rf, you can plot each one separately.

Thanks for the clarification. This should do it:
t = (1e-9:1e-9:1000e-9)';
a = repmat([1e-10, 7e-10, 8e-10],size(t,1),1);
b = repmat([10e-6, 10e-6, 10e-6],size(t,1),1);
t = repmat(t,1,size(a,2));
Rf = a./(b.*t);
title('Rf vs. t');
Both arrays involved in a dot operation need to have the same dimensions. It won't automatically do all combinations for you. Matrix multiplication could be used here, but replicating the rows and columns is more straightforward.
