Fill the follow:
Software used: MatLab
Version: 8.5 2015
Describe the purpose of the laboratory:
To better understand programming, and exactly what MatLab is
capable of doing. This is done by actively getting involved with a
hands on approach to using the software.

1. What commands or functions did you learn for Matlab? Basic structure of
the program as far as layout and general commands. We also covered
editor window and basic command of variables. The most memorable thing
from MatLab that I took away was the feature in which it calculates. The
program is similar but not exact to CodeBlocks in C++ programming.

(the variables above here x and y are arbitrary and do not need to be
included in this so they are left with the % sign to remain hidden in the
calculations by mat lab.)
%theta computation
cos_theta2 = (x^2 + y^2 - l1^2 - l2^2)/(2*l1*l2)
sin_theta2 = sqrt (1 - cos_theta2^2)
theta2 = atan (sin_theta2/cos_theta2);
theta2_deg= theta2 *180/pi
cos_theta1 =(x*(11+12*cos_theta2)+(y*12*sin_theta2))/(x^2+y^2);
sin_theta1 = sqrt(1 - cos_theta1^2);
theta1= atan(sin_theta1/cos_theta1);
theta1_deg=theta1*180/pi

for)

(all of this above here is just merely establishing the joint locations and
the locations to plot on a graph. I.e. the grid on, plot, and line
commands. It is also to be noted that the linewidth command shows how
wide we want the line represented on the graph to actually be.)

not be included in the mat lab calculations.)
3. Include the graphical representation of your model. (Refer to included
MatLab Attachment in blackboard.) I was unable to pull this up and am not
sure on how exactly to get it from Mat Lab into Microsoft word.
