Why does the Index exceeds the number of array elements

Asked by Wilfredo Huaman on 14 Jun 2019
Latest activity Commented on by Wilfredo Huaman on 14 Jun 2019
Im trying to run through total Force which is a 921x1 Double and check if the next value in that array is larger or greater if larger i want to subtract 0.01 from c and if smaller I want to add 0.01 to c and c starts at zero. Why does it exceed the index? Any Help would be greatly Appreciated Thanks!
for j = 1:length(TotalForce)
if j <= length(TotalForce)
if TotalForce(j) >= TotalForce(j+1)
c = c + 0.01 ;
elseif TotalForce(j) <= TotalForce(j+1)
c = c - 0.01 ;
end
end
end

Wilfredo - take a look at these lines
for j = 1:length(TotalForce)
if j <= length(TotalForce)
if TotalForce(j) >= TotalForce(j+1)
If j happens to be the length of the TotalForce array, then j+1 will be an invalid index into your array. Try doing something like
for j = 1:length(TotalForce)-1
if TotalForce(j) >= TotalForce(j+1)
c = c + 0.01 ;
else
c = c - 0.01 ;
end
end
