You can do polar plots in subplots:
x = linspace(0, 2*pi);
y1 = sin(x).^2;
y2 = cos(x).^2;
polar(x, y1)
axis equal
polar(x, y2)
axis equal
The problem is that your function creates a new figure each time.


if i will remove this row: figure(N) still i wouldn't be able to use subplot what can i do so i will still be able to use my function
I’m not certain what you’re doing, but I would either create the subplots first and supply the axis handle to your function, see the documentation for Make Subplot Axes the Current Axes, or create the plot and then return the axis handle to the subplot Return Subplot Axes Handle. The first requires that you supply the axis handle as an input argument to your function. The second requires that you return it as output from your function.
I leave those decisions to you, since it’s your code.
