How do I select specific data?

Hi I am new to Matlab and I'm trying to get my feet on the ground here.
I have 2 columns of data and but I only want to select data in column 2 for a given number of rows which I have defined using
where time is the number of the variable in column 1.
This has given me the row numbers for all the data I want, Now I was just wandering how I select the data in column 2 for these row numbers?

If your (Nx2) array is called ‘data’:
ExtractedData = data(find(time<5),2);

You can index a matrix using the row column indices - matrix dimensions are defined as number of rows x number of columns. The following article should help:
If r is the rows i.e.
r = find(time<5)
then you can extract the data from your 2nd column as follows (assuming x is the matrix)
y = x(r, 2);
Hope this helps.
