I just want to get the norm of
syms phi the;
c = [-cos(phi)*sin(the)^2;-sin(phi)*sin(the)^2; - cos(the)*sin(the)*cos(phi)^2 - cos(the)*sin(the)*sin(phi)^2]
isn't really simplifying anything
If I type it manually:
I get a simple answere:

Hi Niklas,
If your last two vector elements were
- cos(the)*sin(the)*cos(phi) - cos(the)*sin(the)*sin(phi)
i.e. cos(phi) and sin(phi) not squared, then you would get what you say. But since cos(phi) and sin(phi) are squared, you don't.

I'm sorry for forgetting the simicolons in c. It might have been hard for you to reproduce what I was trying to create.

From the documentation of norm and simplify you could find the usage of both these functions. norm would be used to calculate the norm of a vector/matrix but not for an expression. simpify would be used in the simplification of an algebric expression.

well, it actually works if u were to incorporate some assumptions:
assume(phi>0);assume(the>0); assume(phi,'real'); assume(the,'real')
then, under these conditions
will simplify a lot (actually >0 not necessary)
