I just got answer form stackoverflow answer by @Mad Physicist
fwet_1 takes up to 1 input. Your syntax is calling fwet_1 with three inputs, not the function handle it returns.
You can call the function handle like this:
x = fwet_1
If your function really does nothing but return a function handle, skip the function entirely, or remove the unnecessary level of nesting. E.g.:
function [val] = fwet_1(gm1,Sc,Scmax)
val = (Sc/Scmax)^gm1;
If you need a function handle, just use @fwet_1. There's no difference between a regular function and an anonymous one when you pass it around.

Technically fwet_1 accepts up to 1 input argument and if you pass something into it as an input argument it will ignore that input. If you don't pass anything into it, that's fine too.
