Meshing a sphere on matlab

  1. Dec 9, 2008 #1
    hi im sort of a novice on matlab.
    i have a heat transfer problem i need to solve on matlab with finite difference method for a sphere of radius 5cm.
    i jus need to know how to code the geometry of a sphere so that i can do the heat transfer equations on it.
    do i have to do it in cartesian form or radial works as well? how would i go about meshing it so i can get color representation of the temperature distribution on matlab?
    would appreciate any help and advice as im totally stumped.
    thanks
    mo
