# edgeLengths

Below is a demonstration of the features of the `edgeLengths` function

## Contents

```
clear; close all; clc;
```

## Syntax

`[D]=edgeLengths(E,V);`

## Description

This function computes the edge lengths D for the edges defined by the input edges array E and the vertices V.

See also: `patchEdgeLengths`

## Examples

Create example data

%Create an ellipsoid from a sphere mesh (so there are various edge lengths) [F,V]=geoSphere(1,1); %Geodesic sphere mesh V(:,1)=2*V(:,1); %Stretch into ellipsoid %Get edge array E=patchEdges(F,V);

Compute edge lenths

D=edgeLengths(E,V);

VisualiZing edge length data

cFigure; hold on; title('Edge lengths'); gpatch(F,V,'w','none'); gedge(E,V,D,2) axisGeom; camlight headligth; colormap gjet; colorbar; drawnow;
