MATLAB: Fit a first,second,and third degree polynomial, and determine the respective regression co-efficients.

and third degree polynomialfirstregression co-efficientssecond

i am new to matlab and just need an example to follow, please help Please see attached. thanx
i attempted the first part, plz help with regression…
Time = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10];
Pressure = [26.1,27.0,28.2,29.0,29.8,30.6,31.1,31.3,31.0,30.05];
New_Time = 0:0.5:10;
newf1 = polyval(polyfit(Time,Pressure,1),New_Time);
newf2 = polyval(polyfit(Time,Pressure,2),New_Time);
newf3 = polyval(polyfit(Time,Pressure,3),New_Time);
title('Fit of Pressure Samples')
xlabel('Sample Interval,sec')
ylabel('Pressure, PSI')
legend('Data','Linear Fit','Quadratic Fit','Cubic Fit') % linear is first order, quadratic is second order and cubic is third order

Best Answer

R3 = polyfit(Time,Pressure,3) ;
Gives the coefficients of the polynomial. In this case coefficients of third degree polynomial.
