Too many input arguments

Hi everyone,
I know this is a self-explaining error. I know it is usually caused by:
1) Passing a function more input arguments than it expected to receive, perhaps by passing a list of inputs rather than a vector of inputs, or have tried to obtain two outputs from a function that only returns one.
2) You have multiple functions with the same name. etc.
But I think all my inputs the function in line 117 are requred, yet I still get an error message:
Error using fzero (line 306)
FZERO cannot continue because user-supplied function_handle ==> @(pH)HionpH(pH,b) failed with the error below.
Too many input arguments.
Error in SlurryCase10Feb2019>kinetics (line 117)
pH = fzero(@(pH)HionpH(pH,b),pH1);
Error in lsqcurvefit (line 213)
initVals.F = feval(funfcn_x_xdata{3},xCurrent,XDATA,varargin{:});
Error in SlurryCase10Feb2019 (line 73)
[b]=lsqcurvefit(@kinetics,b0,tdata,ydata);
Caused by:
Failure in initial objective function evaluation. LSQCURVEFIT cannot continue.
What can I change, on the attached code, to solve this problem?

send me the main program and subprogmes in rar file , and i will help you
Thanks a lot Berghout. Apology for the delayed response. My PC stopped working. To which email address must I send the file. It is actual a very small program. I have it in one script. Lines 82 to 180 are the main program. Sub-programes are the nested functions.

Everywhere you call function HionpH you call it with two input arguments, but you defined the actual function with just one input argument (thus the error):
function ph = HionpH (pH)
"What can I change, on the attached code, to solve this problem?"
There are two possible solutions:
  • only call HionpH with one input argument (matching how it is defined), or
  • change the definition to accept two input arguments, e.g.:
function ph = HionpH(pH,b)
and then you will have to decide what you want to do with that input (if anything).

Set a breakpoint on the line where the error occurs then run your code. When you reach the breakpoint, evaluate your function at the starting guess.
HionpH(pH_trial, b)
My guess is that the result of that function evaluation is complex (taking the logarithm of a negative number, perhaps.) If that's the case, set another breakpoint inside HionpH and run that command again, working your way through line by line to figure out where the complex number in introduced and whether the command that introduced the complex number is doing what it should.
Thank you. I try that.
I have set a breakpoint on line 218, and I have used a starting guess of pH_trial of 6.6379, which is a zero of @HionpH. Strangely, I still get:
Error using fzero (line 328)
Function value at starting guess must be finite and real.
