Hello! Is it possible to input any values using different variables in a matrix?
For example,
Load=[a1 b1 c1 d1 e1 f1 g1 h1 i1 j1 k1 l1 m1 n1 o1];
I would like to enter a value on each variable. Is it possible? Thanks

hello! thanks for helping me out. I'm trying to use this matrix in this way:
Area = 60
Load=[a1 b1 c1 d1 e1 f1 g1 h1 i1 j1 k1 l1 m1 n1 o1];
Formula would be Stress = Load/Area
Can this work by assigning values with each of the variables?

Why do you want to do it like that? Why not define the entire matrix without using intermediate variables?

We can define variables seperately and then use them whenever required. The following code snippet can be referred which is similar to the formula you are referring to
a = 10;
b = [5 10 20];
c = [10 20 30];
d = [b c];
s = d/a;
