I am using euler's method to solve a differential equation, but when I run the code it doesn't plot.
Take a look at these lines: t0=0; %start time t1= 500; %finish time dt = 100000; Your stepsize is much larger than the total...

Errors while trying to setup equation for root finding.
Did you mean multiply by the "a"? x_pdo = z_pdo/(1 + a*(k_pdo - 1)); x_water = z_water/(1 + a*(k_water - 1)); x_glycerol = z_...

How can I obtain the T and Y for R Runge Kutta method?
The first version has an error. This line: k3=h*feval(f,T(j),Y(j)); should be this instead: k3=h*feval(f,T(j)+h/2,Y(j)+k2/2);...

Problem finding sum of array using vectorization
The first element of x is 1, so that element produces 1/(1-1) = 1/0 = inf in the second line. You need to rewrite that second li...
