could you please figure out the problem why do i get twi indecies for tg
which the first index t( 45633 ) is not giving the correct index but i still receive it.
clear

ca = 1014 ;
ci = 2050 ;
cw = 4218 ;
eps = 27.03 ;
LWC = 0.001 ;

His = 100 ;
ki = 2.18 ;
kw = 0.571 ;
Le = 13.4 ;
LF = 3.344 * 1e5 ;

for i=1:length(t)
Bg = (ki*(Tf-Ts)) / (LWC*beta*v*LF + (Qa+Qk)-((Haw+LWC*beta*v*cw+X*eps)*(Tf-Ta)));
tg = (rho_r /(LWC*beta*v))*Bg ; % time when first glaze appears
% B(i)=((Haw+X*eps+LWC*beta*v*cw-Qa-Qk)/(rho_g*LF))*t(i);
end
tg_index=find(abs(t-tg)<1e-3)
tg_index = 1×2
45633 45634

@mehmet salihi - but both of those indices satisfy the condition that you are using in your call to find. For example,
>> abs(t(45633)-tg)
ans =
5.9622e-04
and
>> abs(t(45634)-tg)
ans =
4.0378e-04
where the ans to each is less than 1e-3.

tg_index contains the indices of all values abs(t-tg) that are less than 0.001. Let's plot those values,
plot(abs(t-tg), '-o')
yline(1e-3) % draw a line at your specified threshold
ylim([0,0.002]) % zoom into the bottom to see the threshold
% add red lines at the tg_index values for confirmation
xline(tg_index, 'r--')
Here we can see that there are two values less than your threshold and they are at the expected indices returned by find().

The investigation above shows that both indices correctly find values less than 0.001. Were you trying to find the minimum value? If so, [~, tg_index] = min(abs(t-tg)).

Evidently those two elements of t are within 0.001 of tg. If you want just the first element of t that is within 0.001 of tg you can say
tg_index=find(abs(t-tg)<1e-3,1);
but it seems more likely that you want the element of t that is closest to tg, in which case you can say
[~,tg_index]=min(abs(t-tg));
