Unformatted text preview: verify Inventor results using Equation 1 above. 3. MATLAB part (individual work) A. Use Equation 1 to compute volume V of a 8.0 cm long hexagonal noodle with different side lengths given in table 1 and complete the table. Table 1: Side length of hexagonal noodle (a), cm Volume (V) in cm 3 using Equation 1 1.00 2.00 3.80 5.60 12.5 Plot volume (V) as a function of side length (a) using MATLAB on linear, semi-log, and log-log paper. After identifying which plot yields data that best falls along a straight line, use the appropriate polyfit commands to determine the equation of the best fit line. Can you guess the values of ‘m’ and ‘b’ without using the polyfit commands? Note: Show your work to your workshop leader to receive credit for in-workshop work....
