Implementation Matlab Program To Teach Computational Physics In Higher Educational Institution

Soeharto Soeharto, Eka Murdani


MATLAB program is a program developed by MathWorks which uses a matrix programming language where linear algebra programming was simple. MATLAB program can produce physics equation and simulation if it is used properly and correctly. This study will give some examples how to use MATLAB program in teaching computation physics. The first part of this study will give explanation and definition what is MATLAB program. The second part of this study will show you how to generate and produce physics equation, graph and simulation using MATLAB in learning physics especially in physics education in higher education institutions. The final part of this study will summarize and conclude function of MATLAB program in teaching computational physics in the higher educational institution.
