Hi everyone, I tried to generate a figure but got the above. Can someone show me where I could have gone wrong
function f = emu(t, x, nd, alpha, mu, D0, Vol, g, D)
hs = x(1);
D = x(2);
lambda = 1;
% xx = (hd-hw);
% if xx <= 0
% lambda = 0;
% end
theta_0 = nd*pi*D^3 /(6*Vol);
theta_m = nd*pi*(D+L)^3 /(6*Vol);
ftheta_0 = (1 - theta_0)^5.3;
Delta_rho = rho_B - rho_O;
Vst0 = Delta_rho*g*D0^2 /(18*mu);
K1 = abs((2/3)*alpha*Vst0^2 *ftheta_0^2 /(D0 * ((theta_m/theta_0)^(1/3)-1)));
D = sqrt((abs((2/3)*alpha*Vst0*ftheta_0/((theta_m/theta_0)^(1/3)-1)*D0*t +D0^2)));
dhs = lambda*(K1*t + Vst0*ftheta_0);
%dD = lambda*alpha/3 *(Vst0*ftheta_0)/((theta_m/theta_0)^(1/3) - 1) *D0/D;
f = [dhs;dD];
end
Code to generate figure:

emu has 9 input parameters, but you call it with 10.
9 inputs: function f = emu(t, x, nd, alpha, mu, D0, Vol, g, D)
10 inputs assumed: [t,x] = ode45(@(t,x)emu(t, x, nd, alpha, mu, sigma, D0, Vol, g, L), tspan, x0);
