ESO 208A: Computational Methods in Engineering Tutorial 10 Numerical Differentiation 1. Derive finite difference approximations for j f and j f in terms of j f , 1 j f and 2 j f using Taylor’s series (or the method of undetermined coefficients). What are the orders of inaccuracies of these approximations? 2. The location of an object at various times was measured as follows: Time ( t ; s) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Distance ( x ; m) 1 1.55 2.32 3.58 5.79 9.68 16.49 28.22 48.2 81.92 Estimate the speed and acceleration of the object at 5 seconds by using - (i) Forward difference, O(h 2 ) (ii) Backward difference, O(h 2 ) (iii) Central difference, O(h 2 ) and (iv) Richardson extra- polation, O(h 6 ) using three central differences of O(h 2 ). Estimate the true percentage error if the object location is given by 0 5 2 0 1 . t x e . t . 3. Consider the function   3 x Sinx x f (a) Obtain finite difference approximations of f with first order backward difference, second order central difference and 4 th order central difference.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
