Haw can I calculate the difference between two points in a plot?

57 views (last 30 days)
Hi
I would like to get the code for calculating the difference between point A and B in a plot.
I can identify them by looking at the plot, but since I have big data and the points’ position changes every time, it would be nice if I can do them more objectively with codes.
X= time
Y= degrees
I have attached the data and a figure
Thank you for your help

Try this:
---------------------------------------
plot(...)
[x,y] = ginput(2); % clic on each point
dx = diff(x)
dy = diff(y)
---------------------------------------
Enjoy!!!

You can do that in number of ways
  1. If you know the corresponding x values of A and B,let say d1 and d2 them
idx1=find(x==d1);
idx2=find(x==d2);
result=y(idx1)-y(idx2)
2. If not find the diff of y, where maximum two change occurs, might be A and B, then follow last step of 1.
3. Find Peaks (see the documentation)
