Homework Help: #include C++ question

  1. Feb 21, 2010 #1
    #include <iostream>

    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>


    using namespace std;

    struct ElementType
    {
    string Element;
    int AtomicNumber;
    float AtomicMass;
    float Density;

    };
    int main()
    {


    ElementType element1, element2;

    element1.Element = "Boron";
    element1.AtomicNumber = 5;
    element1.AtomicMass = 10.811;
    element1.Density = 2.34;

    cout << "Name = " << element1.Element << endl;
    cout << "Atomic Number = " << element1.AtomicNumber << endl;
    cout << "Atomic Mass = " << element1.AtomicMass << endl;
    cout << "Density = " << element1.Density << endl;


    element2.Element = "Tungsten";
    element2.AtomicNumber = 74;
    element2.AtomicMass = 183.85;
    element2.Density = 19.30;

    cout << "Name = " << element2.Element << endl;
    cout << "Atomic Number = " << element2.AtomicNumber << endl;
    cout << "Atomic Mass = " << element2.AtomicMass << endl;
    cout << "Density = " << element2.Density << endl;
    }
    return 0;
    }

    I just want to display element1 contents

    element1.Element = "Boron";
    element1.AtomicNumber = 5;
    element1.AtomicMass = 10.811;
    element1.Density = 2.34;

    cout << "Name = " << element1.Element << endl;
    cout << "Atomic Number = " << element1.AtomicNumber << endl;
    cout << "Atomic Mass = " << element1.AtomicMass << endl;
    cout << "Density = " << element1.Density << endl;

    Well, how do you display information from a C++ program?

    Isn't the information for element1 and element2 being displayed in main()? I don't understand what the problem is.
