Create a 1D row vector (5,1) with middle elements = T.

1 view (last 30 days)
This is my code: I have problems with assigning the variable T to the 1D row vector.
N = 3;
a1=-2;
a2 = 1;
a3 = 1;
A = diag(a1*ones(1,N)) + diag(a2*ones(1,N-1),1) + diag(a3*ones(1,N-1),-1);
b = zeros(3,1); b(1,1) = -40; b(3,1) = -20;
T=A\b;
x=linspace(0,0.8,5);
Temperature= ones(5,1); Temperature(1,1)=40; Temperature (5,1)=20;
Temperature(2:n-1)=T;
plot(x,Temperature)
title('Temperature distribution between x=0 and x=0.8 ')
xlabel('x')
ylabel('Temperature')

I guess this was only a typographical error, where you inserted the variable 'T' into 'temperature', see below for the adjusted code:
n = 100; % gridpoints
T1 = 100; % temp T1
T2 = 0; % temp T2
%construct a tridiagonal matrix
A=2*eye(n);
A=A-diag(ones(n-1,1),1);
A=A-diag(ones(n-1,1),-1);
A(1,:)=0;
A(1,1)=1; %Since the temperature at node 1 is known
A(n,:)=0;
A(n,n)=1; %Since the temperature at node n is known
% Construct a vector b with known temperatures
b=zeros(n,1);
b(1)=T1;
b(end)=T2;
x = linspace(0,0.8,n);
Temperature = A\b;
T = Temperature(2:end-1); % extract the middle temperatues for the ex
figure
plot(x,Temperature)

xlabel('x')
ylabel('Temperature')

are you able to help me with adding an extra term to the vector b? This is my codes. But i failed the requirements, to my understanding as long i declare a varibale i sould be able to use it.
N = 3;
a1 =-2;
a2 = 1;
a3 = 1;
w=200000;
k=80.2;
deltax= 0.8/5-1;
A = diag(a1*ones(1,N)) + diag(a2*ones(1,N-1),1) + diag(a3*ones(1,N-1),-1);
b = zeros(3,1); b(1,1) = -40-(w/k)*deltax^2; b(3,1) = -20-(w/k)*deltax^2; b(2,1)=-(w/k)*deltax^2;
T=A\b;
x=linspace(0,0.8,5);
Temperature = ones(1,5);
Temperature(1,1)=40;
Temperature(1,5)=20;
Temperature(2:end-1)=T;
Temperature = transpose(Temperature);
plot(x,Temperature)
title('Temperature distribution between x=0 and x=0.8 ')
xlabel('x')
ylabel('Temperature')
