I have a code where I need to show 3 plots on the same figure, but one is so small, that it looks like a line running along the bottom.

Is there a way to have 2 scales in one window so that I can plot my 2 similar plots on a scale , and my smaller plot with a second scale?

Code below if you want to see for yourself, the blue one needs to be scaled in the first window.

thanks all,

Alex

for i = 1:length(T)-1

N(i+1) = N(i) - L1*N(i)*Ts(a);

O(i+1) = O(i) + L1*N(i)*Ts(a) - L2*O(i)*Ts(a);

P(i+1) = P(i) + L2*O(i)*Ts(a);

end

figure % will generate new figure for each time step used

hold on % plotting all in the same figure window

plot(T,N,'r') % plot first decay in red

plot(T,O,'b') % plot second decay in blue

plot(T,P,'g') % plot third decay in green

Hello Alex,

We can use 'subplot' concept to plot many plot in same figure window.

And if you want to specify particular position you can use 'axis' command will help you.

The newsgroups are a worldwide forum that is open to everyone. Newsgroups are used to discuss a huge range of topics, make announcements, and trade files.

Discussions are threaded, or grouped in a way that allows you to read a posted message and all of its replies in chronological order. This makes it easy to follow the thread of the conversation, and to see what’s already been said before you post your own reply or make a new posting.

Newsgroup content is distributed by servers hosted by various organizations on the Internet. Messages are exchanged and managed using open-standard protocols. No single entity “owns” the newsgroups.

There are thousands of newsgroups, each addressing a single topic or area of interest. The MATLAB Central Newsreader posts and displays messages in the comp.soft-sys.matlab newsgroup.

**MATLAB Central**

You can use the integrated newsreader at the MATLAB Central website to read and post messages in this newsgroup. MATLAB Central is hosted by MathWorks.

Messages posted through the MATLAB Central Newsreader are seen by everyone using the newsgroups, regardless of how they access the newsgroups. There are several advantages to using MATLAB Central.

**One Account**

Your MATLAB Central account is tied to your MathWorks Account for easy access.

**Use the Email Address of Your Choice**

The MATLAB Central Newsreader allows you to define an alternative email address as your posting address, avoiding clutter in your primary mailbox and reducing spam.

**Spam Control**

Most newsgroup spam is filtered out by the MATLAB Central Newsreader.

**Tagging**

Messages can be tagged with a relevant label by any signed-in user. Tags can be used as keywords to find particular files of interest, or as a way to categorize your bookmarked postings. You may choose to allow others to view your tags, and you can view or search others’ tags as well as those of the community at large. Tagging provides a way to see both the big trends and the smaller, more obscure ideas and applications.

**Watch lists**

Setting up watch lists allows you to be notified of updates made to postings selected by author, thread, or any search variable. Your watch list notifications can be sent by email (daily digest or immediate), displayed in My Newsreader, or sent via RSS feed.
