Unformatted text preview: ENGR 195(II) – Spring 2010 Activity 2 Class 5a Activity 2 – Creating a function (Estimated Time: 15 minutes) Through this exercise, you and a partner will create a user-defined function from the beginning. 1. Open function_header_template.m in the MATLAB editor and re-save as an appropriately named user-defined function for the task below. 2. Write a MATLAB function that has as arguments the lengths of two sides (a and b) of an oblique triangle and the angle (γ) between them and returns the length of the third side (c) and the remaining two angles (α and β). The length of the third side is given by: γ cos 2 c 2 2 ab b a-+ = The angles α and β are given by: =-c a α sin sin 1 =-c b β sin sin 1 3. For the function: Angles need to be in degrees; Test with vectors 4. Email your script to your partner so your partner can the save the file. a b c β γ α...
