Important matlab commands:
linspace meshgrid pcolor surf surfc contour contourf quiver plot3 colorbar load subplot shading
Skim the Matlab documentation for
linspace, meshgrid, and
pcolor. Create a 2D mesh from −π to π with 30 points in both the x and y directions. Then for each position in the mesh let z = cos(x) sin(y). Use
axis equal, and
axis tight to generate this figure:
But don't you hate those ugly black lines? You can get rid of them with the
shading command. Use
subplot and the
shading command to generate this figure:
Create a 2D mesh from −π to π with 20 points in both the
y directions, let
z = cos(x) sin(y) pointwise, and then recreate this figure using the
Create a 2D mesh from −10 to 10 with 100 points in both the
z = 5 sin(r)/r. Then recreate Figure 4 using the
Create a 2D mesh from −π to π with 100 points in both the x and y directions and
then recreate Figure 5, using the functions
z = cos(x/2) cos(y/2),
z = sin(x) cos(y/2),
z = cos(x/2) sin(y), and
z = sin(x) sin(y).
Enter the following code into a script ﬁle, save the ﬁgure produced as a '.jpg' or '.png' image, and include it with your project. What does the image produce? What is the role of the 'C' variable?
[phi,theta] = meshgrid(linspace(0,2*pi,100)); X=(cos(phi) + 3) .* cos(theta); Y=(cos(phi) + 3) .* sin(theta); Z=sin(phi); C=sin(3*theta); surf(X,Y,Z,C) shading interp
is a rough scale model of a pair of small mountains named Monte Sol and Monte Luna on the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Monte Sol, the bigger of the two mountains is about 200 meters high above the plain, so the scale is 1 = 100 meters.
(a) Reproduce the above surface plot in Matlab.
(b) In a gentle rainstorm, water will flow down the mountains in the direction of steepest descent, i.e. along the negative of the gradient of . Find the gradient of using elementary calculus, then make an plot with both contours of the mountain height and a quiver plot showing the direction of flow of rainwater.
The inviscid 2d fluid flow within a square corner with solid walls at and and the domain and has velocity components
Make a quiver plot of this flow for and , and with . Label the axes and title the plot.
The inviscid 2d fluid flow past a semicircular bump of radius centered at the origin on a flat wall at has velocity components
Make a quiver plot of this flow for , , and , excluding the interior of the bump, where . Draw a blue curve that shows the surface of the semicircular bump. Make the and axis have the same scale, label the axes, and title the plot.
Draw a Klein bottle in Matlab. Feel free to search the web, but understand whatever you use.
