Take a table T, where the columns are x and y coordinates, and each row represents a point. The length is calculated from the first two values, i.e (1,2) for each N.

Whenever I run this, it goes through the iteration for length, but it only uses length at j=5 to calculate force.

My question is how do I get the loop to calculate length, put that through the force formula, and then add to the force sum, then repeat for next iteration?

` T = [1 2 ; 3 4 ; 5 6 ; 7 8 ; 9 10];N=5;force=0;length=0;for F = 1:(N-1) for j=(F+1):N length = sqrt((T(j,1)-T(1,1))^2+(T(j,2)-T(1,2))^2); force = force + 2.2*((10/length)^3-(10/length)^2); end enddisp(force)`
