THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Department of Chemical Engineering•Austin, Texas 78712-1062•(512)471-5238•FAX(512)471-7060 ChE 210 Homework 12 Due: Monday, May 3 This assignment demonstrates how basic MATLAB numerical routines interact with user written MATLAB functions. These routines are simple examples of those used in future courses such as ChE 348 and ChE 372. 1. Write the following function as a MATLAB function myfunction( x ) in an m-file. The function should accept both scalar and vector arguments for x. ) 2 cos( 4 5 . 0 x y x - = a. Calculate and plot the function for values of x from 0 to 5 in increments of 0.01. Don’t worry too much about graph labels, but do add a line (not a grid) that goes from (-2,0) to (4,0). b. Find an accurate value of the first positive root (first greater than zero, it’s near 0.75) of the function using the MATLAB function fzero . c.
