code problem
Posted:

Hi, I'm trying to solve a simple function iteratively. My code is as follows... d2=3; z=0.0192; newvar=zeros(1,1552); for n = 1:.1:156 newvar(n) = (d2./n).*tanh((2*pi*d2)./n); end
The first issue is that Matlab objects to this and gives me the message "Attempted to access newvar(1.1); index must be a positive integer or logical."
Ultimately, what I'm trying to find is the n value that equals the solution to the equation, which is indicated by z. I was planning to do this by using find, once I have run the loop.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks Jon
