05.04.1 Chapter 05.04 Lagrange Method of Interpolation – More Examples Electrical Engineering Example 1 Thermistors are used to measure the temperature of bodies. Thermistors are based on materials’ change in resistance with temperature. To measure temperature, manufacturers provide you with a temperature vs. resistance calibration curve. If you measure resistance, you can find the temperature. A manufacturer of thermistors makes several observations with a thermistor, which are given in Table 1.

05.04.2 Chapter 05.04 Determine the temperature corresponding to 754.8 ohms using a first order Lagrange polynomial. Solution For first order Lagrange polynomial interpolation (also called linear interpolation), the temperature is given by 1 0 ) ( ) ( ) ( i i i R T R L R T ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 1 1 0 0 R T R L R T R L Figure 2 Linear interpolation. Since we want to find the temperature at 8 . 754 R , we need to choose the two data points that are closest to 8 . 754 R that also bracket 8 . 754 R to evaluate it. The two points are 3 . 911 0 R and 0 . 636 1 R . Then  131 . 30 , 3 . 911 0 0 R T R  120 . 40 , 0 . 636 1 1 R T R gives 1 0 0 0 0 ) ( j j j j R R R R R L 1 0 1 R R R R ( x 0 , y 0 ) ( x 1 , y 1 ) f 1 ( x ) x y
