If I consider the function react2 and write the function react in the prompt command it will work!! But I want to use only the script window... Since when I'm using the prompt I first type "[t,y] = ode45('react2',[0 4],[1 0 0]);" and after that MATLAB calls the function react2 ... So I thought putting it all in a new window and executing it it would work since the first function is actually what I would've typed in the prompt... But it does not work! why?? how could I get the values for [t y] without having to type [t y ] = ode45('react2',[0 4],[1 0]) ?? HERE IS THE CODE thank you guys..
[t,y] = ode45('react2',[0 4],[1 0 0]);
function dydx = react2(t,y)
dydx = zeros(size(y));
A = y(1); B = y(2); C = y(3);
k1 = 5 ; k2 = 2; k3 = 1;
% initial values (A0,B0,C0) = (1,0,0);
dydx(1) = -k1*A +k2*B ; dydx(2) = k1*A - (k2+k3)*B ;
dydx(3) = k3*B;
It works fine as an anonymous function:
react2 = @(t, y, k1, k2, k3) [(-k1.*y(1) + k2.*y(2)); (k1*y(1) - (k2+k3)*y(2)); k3.*y(2)]; k1 = 5 ; k2 = 2; k3 = 1; [t,y] = ode45(@(t,y) react2(t, y, k1, k2, k3),[0 4],[1 0 0]);
figure(1) plot(t, y) legend('A', 'B', 'C', 'Location', 'NW') grid
...I thought putting it all in a new window and executing it it would work...
I don't know what you mean by the above. If you create another m-file script react.m that contains just the command line
t,y] = ode45('react2',[0 4],[1 0 0]);
at the command window it will work.
You don't use the function keyword in scripts is perhaps your confusion.
Read up the doc's on programming scripts and functions to clarify the difference in depth.
