Write a function named Weight that when called in the command window will compute the weight in pound force based on an input of mass in kilograms.

To determine

Write a function named weight in MATLAB to compute the weight in pound force when the input of mass in kilograms.

Explanation of Solution

Formula used:

Formula to calculate the weight is,

W=mg (1)

Here,

m is the mass in kilograms,

g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8ms2).

Formula to calculate the weight in pound force when the mass in kilogram is,

Wpound=W4.448[1lb=4
