Hi I need help with this code.
Weight=(37000:2000:74000);
CG=(16:1:42);
Index=(((Weight/1000)*(CG-25)*0.041935)+50);
I want to do a scattered plot with Weight on the Y axis, Index on the X axis(Bottom) and CG on X axis (Top). Please help.
Regards Anoop

Hi Anoop, you can do this
Weight=(37000:2000:74000);
CG=(16:1:42);
Index=(((Weight/1000)*(CG-25)*0.041935)+50);
figure
h = scatter3(CG,Index,Weight);
First you will need to make sure your Weight and CG are of the same dimensions. One is 1x19 and the other is 1x27 of which you cannot calculate index from. Once you do that, from there you can look at all the scatter3 plot options to change the graph or you can do this interactively with the figure edit tools.

HI Masao,
I made it the same dimension
Weight=(22000:2000:74000);
CG=(16:1:42);
Index=(((Weight/1000)*(CG-25)*0.041935)+50);
figure
h=scatter3(CG,Index,Weight);
I am getting this error.
Error using *
Inner matrix dimensions must agree.
Error in Trimsheet (line 3)
Index=(((Weight/1000)*(CG-25)*0.041935)+50);

You need to use meshgrid to get all possible combinations of Weight and CG:
Weight=(37000:2000:74000);
CG=(16:1:42);
[x, y] = meshgrid(Weight, CG);
Index=(((x/1000).*(y-25)*0.041935)+50);
h = scatter3(y(:), Index(:), x(:));

I don't know if any graph like that is built in. It looks like you'll have to create something very custom.

Sorry I dint give you the complete details. I am only expecting the grid to be created in Matlab. As you can see the Y axis is Weight and X axis at the bottom is Index and the X axis at the top is CG. Thanks for your time.

I don't really know. Perhaps you can get it by manipulating the camera angle. Or else just create it at a very low level with calls to line().
