I am trying to design a compressor with a range of values. The rotation speed and blades are not fixed and have ranges. How will I input this so that i can be able to calculate the values at each of the ranges.

Would you mind attaching your current code? It shouldn't be too difficult to convert your function to something that can accept vectors, and redefine your variables with either:
Var = 100:Desired_Increment:150;
or
Var = linspace(100,150,n);
where n is the number of desired, equally spaced points in the range.

I agree with Jhon, more specific details could help understanding the problem..
But 1 possibility would be throwing an error if the input value is out of range, e.g. add to the beginning of the function:
Range = [100 150];
if input_val < min(Range) || input_val > max(Range)
error('input value out of range')
end
This will not allow the function to run with values you do not want to treat
