# Help me convert this Equation

i converted this equation before and got this figure.
I forgot how but i lost the file that i wrote the code to get the figure above.
below i am trying to rewrtie it but it is not working. the exponential function is zero or infinity.
Edit!
this is the original equation for the R_e.
i checked the parameters with my report and they are the same.
maybe there is a problem here too?
i did what you asked about the final denominator, still the same results.
clc
Contact_angle = 2.4783666516568;
Volume = 5;
ST_L = 72;
Density = 0.973;
Gravity = 9.807;
Shape_factor = 37.1;
T_zero = 0;
Dynamic_viscosity = 8.9e-4;
R_e = ( 4*Volume / (pi*Contact_angle) )^1/3;
T = 0:0.1:6;
R = R_e*(1 - exp(-(2*ST_L/R_e^12 + Density*Gravity/(9*R_e^10))*(24*Shape_factor*Volume^4*(T+T_zero)/(pi^2*Dynamic_viscosity)))).^(1/6);
plot(T,R);
Thank you All for the help

The 400 is likely because that is what was in your original post before it was edited.

yeah sorry its not as the original equation. check the updated question

Edit: There are two correction in the equation. Thanks @Walter Roberson for pointing out.
% Parameters
Contact_angle = 2.4783666516568;
Volume = 5;
ST_L = 72;
Density = 0.973;
Gravity = 9.807;
Shape_factor = 37.1;
T_zero = 0;
Dynamic_viscosity = 8.9e-4;
R_e = ( 4*Volume / (pi*Contact_angle) )^1/3;
% suggest to split up the terms
T = linspace(0,6e-12, 601);
f5 = 24*Shape_factor*Volume^4*(T + T_zero)/((pi^2)*Dynamic_viscosity); % <--- correction
f4 = (Density*Gravity)/(9*(R_e^10));
f3 = (2*ST_L)/(R_e^12);
f2 = f3 + f4;
f1 = - f2*f5;
R = R_e*(1 - exp(f1)).^(1/6); % <--- correction
plot(T, R), grid on, xlabel('T')

Thank you for the correction. it gave me a good start on the initial rate that the radius will start increasing exponentially from. however there is still problem that the function is not increasing. (the exponent part is 0).
I dont understand why this is happening. i edited my problem with more information if you need it.

x^1/3 means (x^1) divided by 3 which is x/3 . If you want to raise to the power of 1/3 you need x^(1/3)
Watch out for ^1/6 for the same issue.

Walter, I did implement this in the code in my comment, and it still doesn't give any similar result to what OP achieved earlier.

As written, you need to either include your final denominator in parentheses, or divide by Dynamic_Viscocity.
We have to take the rest of the parameters you have given as correct. One potential error to look into - should your angles be in radians instead of degrees?
Contact_angle = 142;
Volume = 5;
ST_L = 72;
Density = 0.973;
Gravity = 9.807;
Shape_factor = 37.1;
T_zero = 0;
Dynamic_viscosity = 8.9e-4;
R_e = ( 400*Volume / (pi*Contact_angle))^1/3;
T = 0:300;
R = R_e * ( 1 - exp(-(2*ST_L/R_e^12 + (Density*Gravity) / (9*R_e^10))*24*Shape_factor*Volume^4*(T+T_zero)/(pi^2*Dynamic_viscosity))).^(1/6);
plot(T,R);

The exponential function becomes 0 because that's what happens when you raise e to a larger and larger negative number.
exp(0)
ans = 1
exp(-0.1)
ans = 0.9048
exp(-1)
ans = 0.3679
exp(-10)
ans = 4.5400e-05
Because the entire expression 1-exp(...) is multiplied by , as time increases, your result will approach .
If it happens to be doing that quicker or slower than expected, check your units.

i understand thanks
