I am trying to change the values of both axes from scientific notation to general form but I don't know how
Below is my code:
%Define variables
sigma = 35*10^6;
young_modulus = 90*10^9;
strain_coefficient = 6*10^-9;
magnetic_field = linspace(0, 160000);
%Function
stress = (sigma/young_modulus) + (strain_coefficient*magnetic_field);
%Create Plot
plot(magnetic_field, stress)
xlabel('Magnetic Field Intensity (A/m)')
ylabel('Microstrain (m/m)')
title('Microstrain vs. Magnetic Field Intensity') This is the result I am looking for: Star Strider on 11 Oct 2021
There are ways to change the exponent display of the axis rulers using the NumericRuler Properties, however that is not necessary here. Just multiply the plot arguments by the appropriate scaling factors —
%Define variables
sigma = 35*10^6;
young_modulus = 90*10^9;
strain_coefficient = 6*10^-9;
magnetic_field = linspace(0, 160000);
%Function
stress = (sigma/young_modulus) + (strain_coefficient*magnetic_field);
%Create Plot
figure
plot(magnetic_field, stress)
xlabel('Magnetic Field Intensity (A/m)')
ylabel('Microstrain (m/m)')
title('Microstrain vs. Magnetic Field Intensity') figure
plot(magnetic_field*1E-3, stress*1E+6)
xlabel('Magnetic Field Intensity (kA/m)')
ylabel('Microstrain (\mum/m)')
title('Microstrain vs. Magnetic Field Intensity') Make appropriate changes to get different results.

As always, my pleasure!

% Turn off the exponents
h.XAxis.Exponent=0;
h.YAxis.Exponent=0; ##### 2 CommentsShowHide 1 older comment

This is to turn off the exponents if you have different values for two axes.
