ECOR 2606 Lab 2 Two discs overlap each other as shown is the diagram below: If R 1, R 2, and D are known X can be calculated using: D R R D X 2 / ) 2 1 ( 2 2 2 The area of a segment of a circle can be calculated using the following formula: R x R x R x R A 1 2 2 2 2 sin 2 The area of the overlap between the two discs is equal to the sum of the areas of two circle segments. Part 1 Write a function m-file (overlap.m) that, given R 1, R 2, and D , computes and returns the overlap area.

Unformatted text preview: Your function should return zero if the discs do not overlap and should generate an error (use function error) if D is less than the minimum of R 1 and R 2 (function min is useful). Part 2 Assume that R 1 = 100mm and R 2 = 50mm. Write a script-m (script.m) that i) plots the overlap area for D from 50mm to 160mm and ii) determines and outputs the value of D that gives an overlap area of 2000 mm 2 . Submit overlap.m and script.m....
