Have values display based on user input
I am trying to have my function to prompt the user to enter a word and have values display based on the word entered. I am not sure exactly how do I move foward from this?
function [T_mp,rho,cp,k,alpha] = Material_Properties(MN)
T_mp_vec = [1406 2192 693 2125]';
rho_vec = [19070 6100 7140 6570]';
cp_vec = [116 489 389 278]';
k_vec = [27.6 30.7 116 22.7]';
a_vec = [12.5 10.3 41.8 12.4]'*1e-6;
if input('Uranium')
t_mp = T_mp_vec(1)
rho = rho_vec(1)
cp = cp_vec(1)
k = k_vec(1)
alpha = a_vec(1)
if input('Vanadium')
t_mp = T_mp_vec(2)
rho = rho_vec(2)
cp = cp_vec(2)
k = k_vec(2)
alpha = a_vec(2)
end
end
end

T_mp_vec = [1406 2192 693 2125]';
rho_vec = [19070 6100 7140 6570]';

k_vec = [27.6 30.7 116 22.7]';
a_vec = [12.5 10.3 41.8 12.4]'*1e-6;
material = input("Pick a card, any card!", 's');
switch lower(material)
case 'uranium':
t_mp = T_mp_vec(1);
rho = rho_vec(1);
cp = cp_vec(1);
k = k_vec(1);
alpha = a_vec(1);
case 'vanadium'
t_mp = T_mp_vec(2);
rho = rho_vec(2);
cp = cp_vec(2);
k = k_vec(2);
alpha = a_vec(2);
otherwise
error('You were not supposed to pick THAT card!');
end
end
By the way, what is the purpose of the MN input the user can pass in?

User had posted,
"So MN is just like a place holder, kind of. What im trying to do it have the code ask the user to enter between Uranium or vanadium, and output values based on either of the choices. I hope this made more sense."
