Solid angle of region bounded by azimuth and elevation angles
Compute Solid Angle
Compute the solid angle for three regions of a sphere that have the same azimuth limits.
az = [0;65]; el = [-15 20 15;5 30 80]; omega = solidangle(az,el)
omega = 1×3 0.3925 0.1792 0.8236
az — Azimuth angles
Azimuth angles in degrees, specified as a two-row matrix. Each column in
az has the form
az2 are the azimuth limits of
created by traveling from
az2 must be between
–180 and 180.
el — Elevation angles
Elevation angles in degrees, specified as a two-row matrix. Each column in
el has the form
el2 are the limits of the elevation sector spanned by
be between –90 and 90.
