Create a Plot of Thickness Vs Stress Using MATLAB

Question

The stress in a spherical pressure vessel (assuming the thin wall approximation) can be calculated by:                     

                                              

where   is stress (in Pascals), p is pressure in (in Pascals), R is the radius of the tank (in meters), and t is the thickness of the tank (in meters). Create a plot of the pressure in a spherical pressure vessel vs the stress seen by the pressure vessel. Create a second plot of the thickness vs stress. Use the subplot function to place both plots in separate graphs in the same window. Use the following data:

Plot 1

1 ≤ p ≤ 100 Pa (use increments of 1 Pa)

R = 1.1 m

t = 0.025 m

Plot 2

p = 4 Pa

R = 2 m

0.01 ≤ t ≤ 3 m (use increments of 0.03 m)

Summary

This question belongs to MATLAB software and discusses about application of MATLAB in physics to create a plot of the pressure in a spherical pressure vessel vs the stress seen by the pressure vessel.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
