I have a problem with the final part of this code, I can't plot the last graphic. Thank you.

r=0.25; % [m]
l=0.57; % [m]
lam=r/l; % lambda
sb=r*(1+lam/4-cos(phi)-(lam*cos(2*phi))/4); % spostamento del pistone
syms x(ang);
x(ang)=r*(1+lam/4-cos(ang)-(lam*cos(2*ang))/4);
sb_sym=x(phi);
figure(1)
plot(phi,sb,'*',phi,sb_sym)

vb_num=Om*(diff(sb)./diff(phi));

you appear to have two errors on that plot line:
1) ab_sym is a symbolic expression - did you mean to exclude this?
2) what did you intend for the x axis of the ab_num plot?
You can make it clearer what you are trying to do if you change that one line to:
plot(phi,ab,'*')
hold on
plot(phi(1:end-1),ab(1:end-1))
plot(phi(1:end-1), ab_num) % assume x axis is phi(1:end-1)
% plot(phi,ab_sym) % not sure what intended

Thank you very much. I was trying to concentrate all that variables in one graphic to make a confrontation, your answers were both correct, I plotted them in two graphics, hope my professor won't argue with that...
