Hi I want to use contour plot to find the minimum dimension of a can with the volume of 315, but I don't know how to do it. I'm sorry I'm pretty new to matlab

I assume you have an n-by-m matrix of costs for n heights and m radii.
I'd use heatmap or imagesc to create a gridded color display where x is can heights, y is radii (or the other way around) and the colorbar defines the cost.

yes it will cost about a quarter to produce 1 meter, the dimension that I calculate to minimize the cost but still keeping the same volume is 4.645m for both height and radius
