Here is my MATLAB code.
syms v(t) t C1
inflow = 3
peri = .4
Vin = 40
outflow = 4
p = .3
qip = p*inflow
p2 = (v)/(Vin+(inflow-outflow)*(t))
qop = p2*outflow
eqn = diff(v) == qip-qop
S = dsolve(eqn);
pretty(S)
Vp = Vin*peri;
tval = 0;
D = Vp-S
Value = subs(D,tval)
C1 = solve(Value)
tval2 = 7;
Value2 = subs(D,tval2)
C2 = solve(Value2)
V = p*(Vin-tval2)+C1*(Vin-tval2)^(4)
I'm trying to plot Vp and V, but whenever I do, the figure just shows a straight line. It should be something like (tval,Vp) and (tval2,V). Please help, thank you!

Of copurse it’s going to be a straight line!
After evaluating the functions, look at ‘(tval,Vp)’ and ‘(tval2,V)’. They are all constants!
syms v(t) t C1
inflow = 3
inflow = 3
peri = .4
peri = 0.4000
Vin = 40
Vin = 40
outflow = 4
outflow = 4
p = .3
p = 0.3000
qip = p*inflow
qip = 0.9000
p2 = (v)/(Vin+(inflow-outflow)*(t))
p2(t) = qop = p2*outflow
qop(t) = eqn = diff(v) == qip-qop
eqn(t) = S = dsolve(eqn);
pretty(S)
4 3 t C1 (t - 40) - --- + 12 10
figure
fsurf(S, [-5 5 0 75])
xlabel('Initial Condition')
ylabel('t') Vp = Vin*peri
Vp = 16
tval = 0;
D = Vp-S
D = Value = subs(D,tval)
Value = C1 = solve(Value)
C1 = tval2 = 7;
Value2 = subs(D,tval2)
Value2 = C2 = solve(Value2)
C2 = V = p*(Vin-tval2)+C1*(Vin-tval2)^(4)
V = .
