How can I use feval, linespace and int()?

9 views (last 30 days)
I want to calculate an indefinite integral and then draw it. A prerequisite is that the interval and the number of points are specified.
It works great:
function test
s = @(x) sin(1./x);
numPoints = 20;
xvec = linspace(0.01,0.1,numPoints);
yvec = feval(s,xvec);
plot(xvec,yvec)
end
How to do the same with the int() ?
I have tried different examples here is one of them:
function test
syms x;
ex = int(x.^2);
s = @(ex) ex;
numPoints = 20;
xvec = linspace(1,10,numPoints);
yvec = feval(s,xvec);
plot(xvec,yvec)
end
How can I use feval, linespace and int()?

The line s = @(ex) ex; is wrong, because you are "shading" the function ex. Basically it is the same as:
s = @(x) x;

You can do like that:
syms x;
ex = int(x^2);
s = @(x) subs(ex, 'x', x);
numPoints = 200;
xvec = linspace(1,10,numPoints);
yvec = feval(s,xvec);
plot(xvec,yvec)
That's being said, in my opinion this is better:
syms x;
ex = int(x^2);
fplot(ex, [1 10]);
