ME 18 2010 Fall Assignment 6 Due Wednesday Nov.10th a. Text book Introduction to matlab for engineers Problem: Chapter 4.6.35, 5.22 b. Newton-Raphson method is another mathematical finding roots method in engineering problem. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton 's_method ). Compared with Bisection method, Newton s method is more efficient and especially for multi-roots problems. Develop a MATLAB function named: LAST_FIRST_rootfinder that helps find the root of an arbitrary function of a single variable using Newton-Raphson method: f(x)=x^3-6x^2+11x-6.1 You can define the function and the first derivative of the function using inline statements, other than using function to define. Your defined LAST_FIRST_rootfinder function will then be called to solve for the root. You will pass the function, the first derivative , an initial guess, the error tolerance and the maximum number of iterations be performed. Your defined function will return the root , the value of the function evaluated at the root and the number of iterations used.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
