Matlab

Hey guys, I'm trying to perform a program using matlab, but I got some trouble. The program should plot a surface this way. clear all; ///////////////////////// clc; %T=290; phi=14; A=64; [T,i_fc]=meshgrid(290:360,0.1:0.01:0.8); pho_m=[181.6.*(1+0.03.*(i_fc./A)+(0.062.*(T./303).^2).*(i_fc/A).^2.5)]./[(phi0.6343.*(i_fc./A)).*(exp(4.18.*(T303)./T))]; surf(T,i_fc,pho_m); xlabel('Temperature(k)'); ylabel('Current Density(A/cm²)'); zlabel('Membrane Resistivity'); //////////////////////////////////
But I have a different model that makes this same surface(that's not exactly the same, but it looks like). In the program above the different is at 'pho_m'. pho_m=p1+p2*T+p3*i1+p4*T^2 but to perform this equation I need to find the coefficients p1,p2,p3,p4. And this would be found by using the least square method.
x=inv(A'*A)*A'*b. The problem is when I use this equation to find the values of p1,p2,p3,p4. Matlab gives me this answer:"Matrix is close to singular or badly scaled. Results may be inaccurate. RCOND = 1.309963e026." and gives me the answer, but I think it's not right because when I plot it, the surface is different from the one I found using the first problem I put above.
