Mech 2 Math Suggested Problems Week #2 Brian Wetton September 28, 2010 1. Experimental Measurements determine that a function f ( x ) satisfies f (0) = 0, f (1 / 4) = 1, f (1 / 2) = 3, f (3 / 4) = 6 and f (1) = 8. (a) Estimate R 1 0 f ( x ) dx using the Trapezoidal rule. (b) Estimate f 00 (1 / 4), f 00 (1 / 2), and f 00 (3 / 4) using centred difference approximations to the second derivative. (c) Use the information in (b) above to give a rough estimate of the error in the calculation you made in (a). 2. Given the values f ( a ), f ( a + h ), f ( a + 3 h ) find a second order formula
