K = 1;

for omega = 1:1000
s = omega*i;
G = K/(s*(s+1.71)*(s+100));
M(omega) = G;

I am trying to create two plots using loop programming (for…end), one plot is the magnitude
20 log M (this is called decibel dB) for from 0.1 to 1000 , and the other plot is the phase (in degree) for from 0. 1 to 1000.
I have attached the code for 1-1000 but when i chnage the 1 value i get an error saying only integers can be used. Can anyone help me fix to this shows a graph for the boundary 0.1-1000.

Your issue is that if you make a for loop for 0.1 to 1000, and then use that same counter as an index, when you then type M(omega) = G; you try to place into the 0.1'th index of M, the result G. Clearly, this is impossible.
Separate your loop counter from your X, like this. This also means you can make any change you want just to your omega input, and the remainder of the script will still fly.
clear
K = 1;
omega = 0.1:0.1:1000; %omega goes from 0.1, in steps of 0.1, to 1000.
for count= 1:size(omega,2) %and the loop counter as well
s = omega(count)*i; %finally, take the loop counter index of omega
G = K/(s*(s+1.71)*(s+100));
M(count) = G;
end
dB = 20*log10(abs(M));

for i = 0.1:0.1:1000
if phase(i) < 0
phase(i) = phase(i) + 360;
end
end

When i input the i value in relation to the above code in my first question,my code does not work can somebody help please. when i change 'for i = 1:1000, the graph works. i need it for the range 0.1 to 1000.
