coloring the area between three curves
5 views (last 30 days)
Hi. I want to color the intersection region of three curves.
T1 = 180:0.1:270;
x1 = 3*cosd(T1); y1 = 3*sind(T1); % circle
T2 = 3.3620:0.001:3.9045;
c1 = 4.3123; c2 = -50.2708; c3 = 193.7277; c4 = -243.8411;
r_6 = c1*T2.^3 + c2*T2.^2 + c3*T2 + c4;
x2 = 1.1998 + r_6.*cos(T2); y2 = -0.8840 + r_6.*sin(T2); % region 4
x0 = 1.8977; y0 = 2.3235; vr = 4.0678;
beta = atan(y0/x0);
x3 = -2.0591:0.001:-1.8541; y3 = y0 + (x0-x3)*cot(beta) - (9.81*(x0-x3).^2)./(2*(vr*sin(beta))^2); % parabola
pgon1 = polyshape(x1,y1); % circle
pgon2 = polyshape(x2,y2); % region 4
pgon3 = polyshape(x3,y3); % parabola
pgon4 = intersect(pgon1,pgon2);
Actually, the fucntion :plot (intersect(pgon3,pgon4),'EdgeColor','none'); gives the error
Please suggest a way

The common area between the polygons 'pgon3' and pgon4' isn't being plotted because the 'intersect' function doesn't find any common points between the 2 regions and thus returns an object having an empty matrix for 'Vertices' field, when you run
To visualise your plots better, you can try plotting the polygon regions ('pgon1', 'pgon2' etc one after the other) and then decide which polygons to send to the 'intersect' function to compute the common points. You can refer the following code snippet:
>> hold on
You can check the 'Vertices' field of the 'polyshape' object that the function 'intersect' returns to confirm whether there are any common points.
Hope this helps!
