Hi all,
Being new to matlab I am not able to find the answer.
I have a curve, and I need to find the area enclosed by it.
Please see the attached picture.
Any help would be appreciated. :)

This may be a parametric three-dimensional problem, and that would affect how the area would be calculated.
We cannot tell, because we do not have access to the code or data that created it.

I extracted the data from a different software and simply plotted it on matlab.

If you have x and y vectors of the same length, then you can use polyarea or trapz fucntion.
