05.02.1 Chapter 05.02 Direct Method of Interpolation – More Examples Chemical Engineering Example 1 To find how much heat is required to bring a kettle of water to its boiling point, you are asked to calculate the specific heat of water at C 61 . The specific heat of water is given as a function of time in Table 1. Table 1 Specific heat of water as a function of temperature. Temperature, T   C Specific heat, p C C kg J 22 42 52 82 100 4181 4179 4186 4199 4217 Determine the value of the specific heat at C 61 T using the direct method of interpolation and a first order polynomial.

Direct Method of Interpolation – More Examples: Chemical Engineering 05.02.3 Since we want to find the specific heat at C 61 T , and we are using a first order polynomial, we need to choose the two data points that are closest to C 61 T that also bracket C 61 T to evaluate it. The two points are 52 0 T and 82 1 T . Then   4186 , 52 0 0 T C T p   4199 , 82 1 1 T C T p gives   4186 52 52 1 0 a a C p   4199 82 82 1 0 a a C p Writing the equations in matrix form, we have 4199 4186 82 1 52 1 1 0 a a Solving the above two equations gives 5 . 4163 0 a 43333 . 0 1
