DSolve[{\[Theta]'[t] == k i[t], i'[t] == -k \[Theta][t] - r i[t] + 10, i[0] == 0, \[Theta][0] == 0}, {i, \[Theta]}, t]] Manipulate[ Row[Table[ ParametricPlot[Evaluate[sol /. {k -> kk}], {t, 0, n}, PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-1, 15}}, Frame -> True, ImageSize -> 150, Axes -> False], {r, 1, 3} ]], {n, 0.01, 7}, {kk, 0.1, 10} ] some of the things I changed: 1) k had no value, so I inserted one with a secon manipulate variable 2) the DSolve was called way too often... 3) For does not return anything, and that is not the most important reason to avoid it in Mathematica. 4) parametertic plot didn't like to plot from t=0 to 0, so I changed the minimal n value to 0.01. hth, albert
