I am having trouble with adding a legend to a plot. this is my code,I tryed to use serval things,like

PlotLegends -> Automatic
PlotLegends -> {cVals[i]}
PlotLegends -> {i}
PlotLegends -> {cVals}

but they didn't give me what I hope!

what I want is writing the values of c in the plot,for example the red curve c=2.4 and the yellow curve c=2.2 ...etc

 Clear[t]
\[Tau] = 13.8;
\[Omega]0 = 1;
r = 0.7071;
n = 1.7758;
\[HBar] = 1.05457173*10^-34;
\[Omega] = 0.5;
k = 1666666.667;
s = 2.2758;
cVals = {2.4, 2.2, 2, 1.8, 1.5, 1.3};
color = {Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, Orange};

Do[c = cVals[[i]];
 system1 = {x'[t] == n*y[t], y'[t] == -n*x[t] - c*z[t], 
   z'[t] == c*y[t]};
 initialvalues1 = {x[-20] == 0, y[-20] == 0, z[-20] == -1};
 sol1 = NDSolve[
   Join[system1, initialvalues1], {x[t], y[t], z[t]}, {t, -20, 20}];

 R = (-c*r*y[t]);

 Subscript[plotR, i] = 
  Plot[Evaluate[R /. sol1], {t, -20, 20}, FrameLabel -> {"t", "R"}, 
   Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> All, PlotStyle -> color[[i]], 
   PlotLegends -> {cVals[i]}];
 , {i, Length[cVals]}] 


Show[{Subscript[plotR, 1], Subscript[plotR, 2], Subscript[plotR, 3], 
  Subscript[plotR, 4], Subscript[plotR, 5]}]

There might be a missing double square bracket (you want the $i$th part of the list cVals instead of calling a function with argument $i$), i.e. instead of

cVals[i]

use

cVals[[i]]

Replacing the following in the definition of Subscript in your code gives a rudimentary legend:

PlotLegends -> {"c=" <> ToString[cVals[[i]]]}
