Plot velocity vectors



A feather plot displays vectors emanating from equally spaced points along a horizontal axis. You express the vector components relative to the origin of the respective vector.

feather(U,V) displays the vectors specified by U and V, where U contains the x components as relative coordinates, and V contains the y components as relative coordinates.

feather(Z) displays the vectors specified by the complex numbers in Z. This is equivalent to feather(real(Z),imag(Z)).

feather(...,LineSpec) draws a feather plot using the line type, marker symbol, and color specified by LineSpec.

feather(axes_handle,...) plots into the axes with handle axes_handle instead of the current axes (gca).

h = feather(...) returns the handles to line objects in h.


Create a feather plot showing the direction of theta.
