function [vol,area] = cone_calcs(r,h) % This function computes the volume and surface area % of a right-circular cone. % INPUTS: the scalar radius r of the circular base % the scalar height h of the cone % OUTPUTS: the scalar volume V of the cone % the scalar area A of the cone if r<=0 || h<=0 error( The cone must have positive dimensions ) base = pi*r^2; % area of base circle sides = pi*r*sqrt(r^2 + H^2); % area of the sloped sides V = 1/3*base*H; % volume A = sides + base; % total surface area end % Answer to Part A: % >>[cone_vol,cone_area]=cone_calcs(3,4) % Answers to Part B: % Line #: 1 % Error: the output variables vol and area are not defined in the function
