f

#### Matlab Problem, Need Help Urgent

```Consider the integral
∫0   e-x sin(2x) dx
∏/4

a)	Use the trapezoidal rule, and Simpson’s rule to approximate the integral.
b)	Compute the exact error in each case of part (a), and compare the exact error to the error bound associated for each integration method used.
Hint:
Use
function s=simprl(f,a,b,M)

%Input    - f is the integrand input as a string 'f'
%         - a and b are upper and lower limits of integration
%         - M is the number of subintervals
%Output   - s is the simpson rule sum

h=(b-a)/(2*M);
s1=0;
s2=0;

for k=1:M
x=a+h*(2*k-1);
s1=s1+feval(f,x);
end
for k=1:(M-1)
x=a+h*2*k;
s2=s2+feval(f,x);
end

s=h*(feval(f,a)+feval(f,b)+4*s1+2*s2)/3;

function s=traprl(f,a,b,M)

%Input    - f is the integrand input as a string 'f'
%         - a and b are upper and lower limits of integration
%         - M is the number of subintervals
%Output   - s is the trapezoidal rule sum

h=(b-a)/M;
s=0;

for k=1:(M-1)
x=a+h*k;
s=s+feval(f,x);
end

s=h*(feval(f,a)+feval(f,b))/2+h*s;
```

So, your Professor has kindly supplied you with the functions you need
What's the problem?
Just bang the function in and solve it.
Easy peasy.
Wow, these students have it easy these days!!
In my day, we'd have had to solve it by hand using a slide rule or
abacus.

They let you use a slide rule or abacus? Wow, you

We had to make our own abacus from pieces of stone
as remnants of rocks we broke apart ourselves. We
made slide rules from two sticks, putting marks on
them with our own blood.

Then they took away our stickrules, so we scratched
lines in the dirt on both sides of the San Andreas
fault, and waited for an earthquake of just the
correct size and in the right direction.

But we loved every minute of it. ;-)

Okay... to the logical conclusion...

Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman and Terry Jones (in that order)
are sitting around in bamboo chairs at a tropical resort, drinking wine,
smoking cigars, and reminiscing about the good old days.

Idle: Who would have thought, thirty years ago, we'd all be sitting here
drinking Chateau de Chatterly, eh?

Palin:  Them days, we'd be glad to have the price of a cup of tea.

Chapman:  A cup of cold tea.

Idle: Without milk or sugar.

Jones:  Or tea.

Palin:  In a cracked cup and all.

Idle:  Oh, we never used to have a cup. We'd have to drink out of a rolled
up newspaper.

Chapman:  The best we could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.

Jones:  But you know, we were happy in those days, although we were poor.

Palin:  Because we were poor. My old dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't
bring you happiness, son".

Idle:  He was right. I was happier then and I had nothing. We used to live
in this tiny old tumbled down house with great big holes in the roof.

Chapman:  House. You were lucky to live in a house. We used to live in one
room, all twenty-six of us, no furniture, half the floor was missing, we
were all huddled together in one corner for fear of falling.

Jones:  You were lucky to have a room. We used to have to live in the
corridor.

Palin:  Oh, we used to dream of living in the corridor. It would have been
a palace to us. We used to live on an old water tank in a rubbish dump. We
used to wake up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all
over us. House, humph.

Idle:  Well, when I say "house", it was just a hole in the ground covered
by a sheet of tarpaulin. But it was a house to us.

Chapman:  We were evicted from our hole in the ground. We had to go and
live in a lake.

Jones:  You were lucky to have a lake. There were a hundred and fifty of
us living in a shoe box in the middle of the road.

Palin:  Cardboard box?

Jones:  Aye.

Palin:  You were lucky. We lived for three months in a rolled up newspaper
in a septic tank. We used to have to get up every morning at six o'clock and
clean the newspaper, go to work down at the mill fourteen hours a day, week
in, week out for sixpence a week and when we got home, our dad would thrash
us to sleep with his belt.

Chapman:  Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock
in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, work twenty
hours a day at the mill for tuppence a month, come home and our dad would
beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle if we were lucky.

Jones:  Well of course, we had it tough. We used to have to get out of the
shoe box in the middle of the night and lick the road clean with our
tongues. We had to eat half a handful of freezing cold gravel whilst working
all day in that mill for fourpence every six years and when we got home our

Idle:  Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half
an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine
hours a day down mill and pay the mill owner for permission to come to work
and when we got home, our dad would kill us and dance about on our graves
singing halleluja.

Palin:  And you try and tell the young people of today that, and they
won't believe you.

Idle, Chapman and Jones:  No, no they won't.

Oh, I beg your pardon, but I did tell him what to do in my first
posting:
"Just bang the function in and solve it."
I thought that was a pretty clear instruction.

Man: Look, I CAME HERE FOR HELP, I'm not going to just stand...!!

Mr Barnard: OH, oh I'm sorry, but this is abuse.

Man: Oh, I see, well, that explains it.

Mr Barnard: Ah yes, you want room 12A, Just along the corridor.
