Programming in the labview mathscript window

The MathScript feature allows one to include .m files, which can be created using any text editor. To activate the LabVIEW MathScript interactive window, select Tools MathScript Window from the main menu. To open the LabVIEW MathScript text editor, click the Script tab of the LabVIEW MathScript Window (see [link] ). After typing the .m file textual code, save it and click on the Run script button (green arrow) to run it.

For instance, to write a program to compute the average (mean) of a vector x, the program should use as its input the vector x and return the average value. To write this program, follow the steps outlined below.

Type the following in the empty script:

x=1:10

L=length(x);

sum=0;

for j=1:L

sum=sum+x(j);

end

y=sum/L % the average of x

From the Editor pull-down menu, go to File Save Script As and enter average.m for the file name. Then click on the Run script button to run the program. [link] shows the LabVIEW MathScript interactive window after running the program.

Sound generation

Assuming the computer used has a sound card, one can use the function sound to play back speech or audio files through its speakers. That is, sound(y,FS) sends the signal in a vector y (with sample frequency FS) out to the speaker. Stereo sounds are played on platforms that support them, with y being an N-by-2 matrix.

Try the following code and listen to a 400 Hz tone:

>>t=0:1/8000:1;

>>x=cos(2*pi*400*t);

>>sound(x,8000);

Now generate a noise signal by typing:

>>noise=randn(1,8000); % generate 8000 samples of noise

>>sound(noise,8000);

The function randn generates Gaussian noise with zero mean and unit variance.

Loading and saving data

One can load or store data using the commands load and save. To save the vector x of the above code in the file data.mat , type:

>>save data x

Note that LabVIEW MathScript data files have the extension .mat. To retrieve the data saved, type:

>>load data

The vector x gets loaded in memory. To see memory contents, use the command whos ,

>>whos

Variable Dimension Type x   1x8000 double array

The command whos gives a list of all the variables currently in memory, along with their dimensions. In the above example, x contains 8000 samples.

To clear up memory after loading a file, type clear all when done. This is important because if one does not clear all the variables, one could experience conflicts with other programs using the same variables.

Reading wave and image files

With LabVIEW MathScript, one can read data from different file types (such as .wav, .jpeg and .bmp) and load them in a vector.

To read an audio data file with .wav extension, use the following command:

>>[y Fs]=wavread(‘filename’)

This command reads a wave file specified by the string filename and returns the sampled data in y with the sampling rate of Fs (in hertz).

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.

sure. what is your question?

20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
