How do I get my plot points to be unfilled instad of filled?
I just about have this the way I want it
right now my data points are just filled points, I'm trying to get them to be unfilled circles with line size 6.
If somebody could let me know how to swap to the unfilled points that would be awesome.
Also, is there a way to make my plot points more concise?
Thanks!
clear variables
clc
t=0:.5:20;
r=385-88*(exp(-t/2.8));
p=plot(t,r,'LineWidth',3);
hold on
plot(t(1),r(1),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(5),r(5),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(9),r(9),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(13),r(13),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(17),r(17),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(21),r(21),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(25),r(25),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(29),r(29),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(33),r(33),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')
plot(t(37),r(37),'ro', 'linewidth', 6,'markerfacecolor','w')

xlabel('Time [ sec ]')
ylabel('T(t)[K]')

PS. I forgot to delete the markerfacecolor command from the script on each plot point, that was an attempt to turn the middle white.

Think you'll find it's due to the linewidth - change it to 1 and they shouldn't be filled. MarkerSize changes the size of the points.

Oh dang, that was a silly mistake, thank you for helping out with that.
