Directory to DOWNLOAD the Matlab m-scripts
  • Matlab is a powerful scientific programming and visualisation software application used by scientists, engineers, researchers and others throughout the world.
  • Matlab is a well suited tool for modelling the physical world and using it can be beneficial to students studying physics and engineering.
  • Matlab can be used as a teaching and learning tool enabling students to gain a deeper understanding of physical principles.
  • On the web, there are many excellent simulations which include animations but the physics behind these simulations is kept secret. But using Matlab one can study the m-scripts to learn more about physics and using Matlab. Writing your own simulation is much better than running an applet.
