MATLAB: Want to combine two plots

homeworkplot

I want to plot y1 = 100.0 – 90.0*exp(-0.0465*t); and y2 = 203.6 – 11.3*t; together on the same plot
and then plot ( y = y1 +y2 ) for t = (0,50) but I don't want to include the (-ve) values of y2, i.e replace the (-ve) values of y2 with zero.
something like a new function y3 = [ ( if (t<203.6/11.3) y3 = y2 else y3 = 0 ]

  • Try this:
    t = linspace(0, 50);
    y1 = 100.0 - 90.0*exp(-0.0465*t);
    y2 = 203.6 - 11.3*t;
    y2 = y2 .* (y2 >= 0); % Set Negative ‘y2’ To Zero
    y = y1 + y2;
    figure
    plot(t, y)
    grid
    xlabel('t')
    ylabel('y')
    That should do what you want.
