e = [0.05:0.05:1];
syms tp
eqn = 900-e.*5.67*10^(-8)*tp^4-20*(tp-293)==0;
S = vpasolve(eqn,tp)
I get the following message: Empty Sym: 0-by-1 when running this. Any changes I can make?

e = [0.05:0.05:1];
syms tp
for i=1:numel(e)
eqn = 900-e(i)*5.67*10^(-8)*tp^4-20*(tp-293)==0;
S{i} = vpasolve(eqn,tp);
end

Maybe you should use "roots" instead of "vpasolve" because your polynomial equation has 4 zeros.
