Why is my plot linear when the anonymous function z is clearly nonlinear?

It simply looks linear because you are plotting it over too narrow a range. Req = 0:120000; plot(Req,z(Req));

I am trying to compute the zero of a function using fzero, but the system always says my function must be finite and real. How can I solve that? Thank you!

Clearly, your function is non-finite at x=0. There is a factor of x^2 in its denominator. Regardless, fzero() is the wrong too...
