which will result in an output of:
surfacearea1 area1 volume1
surfacearea2 area2 volume2
surfacearea3 area3 volume3
etc etc etc
If the output matrix has to be aligned a different way(my examples rows as columns instead) then thats fine, i just need to be able to get an output that gives all 3 areas/volumes from the given dimensions.
Thanks for taking some time to look at this though.
Code:
function rv=cylinder(height, radius)
% first make sure we have column vectors
sz1=size(height);
if sz1(1) ~= 1
ht=height';
else
ht=height;
end
sz1=size(radius);
if sz1(1) ~= 1
rd=radius';
else
rd=radius;
end
sarea=ht.*(2*rd*pi);
xarea=pi*rd.^2;
volume=ht.*xarea;
rv=[sarea;xarea;volume]';
