Hello Shreen,
Here are two ways although you will need the symbolics toolbox for the first one. I used benign values for z and nu and the two methods agree very closely. When either z or nu get excessively large there will be numerical issues, and you might explore to see which method gives up first.
nu = 1.2;
z = 0:.1:4;
% hypergeometic function 1F2
C = 2/(sqrt(pi)*gamma(nu+3/2));
L1 = C*(z/2).^(nu+1).*hypergeom(1,[3/2+nu,3/2],z.^2/4)
% numerical integration
D = 2/(sqrt(pi)*gamma(nu+1/2));
fun = @(th,z,nu) sinh(z*cos(th)).*sin(th).^(2*nu);
L2 = D*(z/2).^nu.*integral(@(th) fun(th,z,nu),0,pi/2,'arrayvalued',true);
checkdel = max(abs(L1-L2))
L1 =

Because I used them inside other calculations to plot other functions. Are you understand me?

Pi = sym(pi);
syms z
nu0 = sym(0);
C0 = 2/(sqrt(Pi)*gamma(nu0+3/2));
L0 = C0*(z/2).^(nu0+1).*hypergeom(1,[3/2+nu0,3/2],z.^2/4)
L0 =
nu1 = sym(1);
C1 = 2/(sqrt(Pi)*gamma(nu1+3/2));
L1 = C1*(z/2).^(nu1+1).*hypergeom(1,[3/2+nu1,3/2],z.^2/4)
L1 =
