To draw a 2-D plot in MATLAB, the plot command is used. The syntax is given as follows:
x is a vector containing the x-coordinates of the plot and
y is a vector containing the y-coordinates of the plot.
When executed, the command will create a plot in the MATLAB figure window with data in vector x taken along x-axis and data in vector y along y-axis.
In case figure window already exits, it clears the current figure window and draws a new plot.
Plot the curve given by equation y = x2 where x varies from 0 to 10.
The program to plot the curve given by equation y = x2 is given as follows:
x = 0 : 1 : 10; %Statement 1 y = x .^ 2; %Statement 2 plot(x, y); %Statement 3
