I understand that this code returns a vector length of 303 but the initail vector (y0) only contains 3. I am not sure how to fix this error.

Vspan = [0 10];

y0 = [0 570 (50*101.325)];

[V,y] = ode45(@(~,y) fun(del_h1,del_cp1,cp1),Vspan,y0);

function dydt = fun(~,y,del_h1,del_cp1,cp1)

X = y(1);

T = y(2);

P = y(3);

You have a mismatch in the number of arguments. E.g., this

[V,y] = ode45(@(~,y) fun(del_h1,del_cp1,cp1),Vspan,y0);

should be this

[V,y] = ode45(@(t,y) fun(t,y,del_h1,del_cp1,cp1),Vspan,y0);
