Last Modified: January 9, 2017

Computes the square roots of the positive input elements.

## Syntax

c = sqrtofreal(a)
Legacy name: realsqrt

## a

Scalar or array of any dimension. The elements of a must be non-negative floating-point numbers.

## c

Square roots of the elements in a. c is an array of the same size as a.

## Differences between Sqrt and Sqrtofreal

Sqrtofreal is equivalent to sqrt for positive real numbers but generates an error for all other input elements.
A = [1:1:5]
C = sqrtofreal(A)
