I need help getting started in MATLAB this is an assignment and the instructor has been no help. I am new to all this and struggling to get started, Any help would be much appreciated.
Given the following relationships, write a MATLAB program to find the current (I) carrying capability of copper, aluminum, gold, and silver where all wires have a diameter (d) of the wire of 0.5 cm, a length (L) of 10,000 m, and an applied voltage (V) of 110V.
V = IR R = (ρL)/A A = π(0.5d)2
The resistivity (ρ) for each type wire is:
Copper = 1.72 x 10-8ohm/m
Aluminum = 2.75 x 10-8ohm/m
Gold = 2.44 x 10-8 ohm/m
Silver = 1.59 x 10-8ohm/m
