Perhaps the most famous equation in physics is
Which relates energy E to mass m. The speed of light in a vacuum, c, is the property that links the two together. The speed of light in a vacuum is 2.9979 x 108 m/s.
Create a function called energy to find the energy corresponding to a given mass in kilograms. Your result will be in joules, since 1 kg m2/ s2 = 1J
b) Use your function to find the energy corresponding to masses from 1 kg to 106 kg. Use the logspace function (consult help logspace) to create an appropriate mass
c) Create a plot of your results. Try using different logarithmic plotting approaches (e.g., semilogy, semilogx, and loglog) to determine the best way to graph your results
This question belongs to MATLAB software and discusses about application of MATLAB to energy equation in physics and to find out energy corresponding to given mass.
