Hello

I have plotted a vector which has 3 planes.. When I integrate the integral is 0. There are negative regions, yet I expect a number. I us

sd = trapz((z),0,20)

sd =

0

will someone tell me if there is an error with my use of trapz?

There quite definitely is!

In your call to it:

sd = trapz((z),0,20)

the function interprets ‘z’ (the parentheses aren’t necessary) as the indepdent variable ‘x’, 0 as the dependent variable ‘y’, and 20 as the dimension. Integrating 0 produces 0 as the result.
