CHEN 3600 -Lab Assignment 2 Plotting and Recognition of Mathematical Base Functions Summary: CHEN 3600 - Lab Assignment 2 Plotting and Recognition of Mathematical Base Functions Your assignment is to examine the influence of the parameters (A, B, C) in the basic math functions below. Note that J0 is defined as a Bessel Function of the First kind, of order zero. Also note that erf is the Error Function. Near the end of the lab time this week, you will have a quiz that will test your understanding and explanation of some elements of these functions. You should select appropriate ranges for these functions and parameters. Use MATLABR to make plots and examine the plots to learn about the character of the functions and the influence of the parameters on the shape, scale, position and (where applicable) roots of the curve. Also investigate the characteristics of the products, quotients, integrals and derivatives of these important engineering functions. Note that A, B and C in the equations below are some arbitrary constants that you are supposed to vary to establish a "feel" for the behavior of the function. 1. y = A sin(Bx + C) 2. y = A cos(Bx + C) 3. y = A tan(Bx + C) 4. y = A cosh(Bx) 5. y = A sinh(Bx) 6. y = A(x + B)n n = 1..3 Collections: Materials Science
