How do you use the integral function when the function being integrated is a user defined input?

3 ビュー (過去 30 日間)
I am currently having trouble figuring out how to integrate a function when that function is being inputted by the user. This is what I currently have...
lowb=input('low: '); highb=input('high: ');
fun=@(x)([input('input function here: ')]); B=integral(fun,lowb,highb);
I have the user input the upper and lower bounds, as well as the function they want integrated. However, turning the inputted function into something the integral function can work with is where I am lost. Any help would be awesome, thanks.

Hi Brennan!
I hope "str2func" function in MATLAB will do the trick.
fh = str2func(c)
constructs a function handle, fh, from a function name or a character vector that defines an anonymous function.
You can convert a character vector that represents an anonymous function to a function handle.
Example : Define a character vector that represents the anonymous function 7x – 13. Convert the character vector to a function handle.
str = '@(x)7*x-13';
fh = str2func(str)
This gives:
fh =
