How to assign negative values to a variable

344 views (last 30 days)
I am getting an error as like this.
Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals.
my code is,
V = -60
am(V)=(0.01*(V+50))/(1-exp(-(V+50)/10))
but i need to pass V=-60 to am(V). how can i pass this.
Can anyone answer for this. Thanks in advance.

It would be more helpful if you could explain what objective you are trying to achieve. It seems like am(V) is a function of V and you would like to get the value of the function at V = -60. If that is the case, you may need to define the function first before passing a value into it.

Your ‘am’ function needs to be coded as an anonymous function:
V = -60
am = @(V) (0.01*(V+50))/(1-exp(-(V+50)/10));
amV = am(V)
produces:
amV =
58.1977e-003

V = -60
am = (0.01*(V+50))/(1-exp(-(V+50)/10))
am(V) in MATLAB means that you want to access the V-th index in the array am, which has to be positive integers or logicals.
