Homework Help: Scilab codes for a lab report for Helmholtz

  1. Dec 29, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    It is actually not homework, but I found it is cool to solve it in Scilab, and I think that it is more proper to ask it here
    write the codes for (please read the picture)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Z= [-0.17 -0.15 -0.13 -0.11 -0.09 -0.07 -0.05 -0.03 -0.01 0 0.01 0.03 0.05 0.07 0.09]


    The problem is that given large enough a, it is supposed to be looked like a y=Ax^4+C function,
    but no matter what number I put in,
    it appears to be like a y=-Ax+C function,
    Would anyone tell me what's wrong, please?

    Thanks for your reading, anyway :)
