Below is my script:
clc;
clear;
clear all;
% plotting frequency-current graph according to variable frequency values
f=100:100:100000; % variable frequency values
V=3.536; % AC voltage source
L=33*10^-3; %inductor (henry)
R=820; %resistor (ohm)
W=2*(pi)*f; % Angular frequency formula
XL=W*L; % inductor impedance
XC=1/(W*C); % capacitor impedance
Z=(2*R)+1i*(XL-XC); % total impedance
I=V/Z; % current
plot(f,I)
May I know why I keep getting this error and how can I fix?

Error in deney3_2 (line 14)
XC=1/(W*C); % capacitor impedance

f is a vector, as well as W. So you must use the dotted version of the division (that is ./ that performs the operation elementwise). You may find more information here

Note that you are plotting only the real part, as noticed in the warning
