Are you remembering to divide by 2*pi in your frequency plot?? w = 2*pi*f and 2*pi~6.

If this isn't the problem then it may be the number of FFT points you are using. NFFTPts = (Fs*(max(T) - min(T)))/2.

Okay, since I do not know exactly how you are using the FFT function, a division of 2 may or may not be valid.

As for the slight differences you are getting in frequency, that might be due to the frequency resolution of your plot. Frequency resolution is given by the following equation:

df = 1/T = Fs/N

where T is total acquisition time, N is the number of samples, and Fs is the sampliing frequency. However, in your case, this would be df = 1/6 Hz, which is much smaller than the error you are getting. I'm not sure why you are getting these mixed results...

Note: The frequency resolution improves as the observation time T increases.
