when you say `This is the value of the coordinate isn't it`,
to which `This` are you refering to?

any way, when you write

t: 0:0.1:1;
x0=1; dx=0.1;
x = x0 + t*dx

then use x(1) or x(5) to access values in the
x vector. do not use x(0.01) or x(0.5).

You loop index will be something like

for i=1:length(x)
x(i) = .....
