# slope_field

Draws the slope field of a first-order, univariate, ordinary differential equation.

## Syntax

slope_field(f,[xmin,xmax],[ymin,ymax])
slope_field(f,[xmin,xmax],[ymin,ymax],density,color,width)
fig = slope_field(__)

## Description

slope_field(f,[xmin,xmax],[ymin,ymax]) draws the slope field of a differential equation , where f is the function handle of , and where [xmin,xmax] and [ymin,ymax] define the domain over which the slope field is drawn.

slope_field(f,[xmin,xmax],[ymin,ymax],density,color,width) draws the slope field of a differential equation , where f is the function handle of , and where [xmin,xmax] and [ymin,ymax] define the domain over which the slope field is drawn. Additionally, density defines the number of lines to draw in the horizontal direction (effectively controlling how many lines are drawn to create the slope field), and color and width define the color and line width, respectively, of the lines.

fig = slope_field(__) draws the slope field and also returns the figure handle of the slope field. You can use any of the input arguments in the previous syntaxes.
