Figure 1 Trunnion to be slid through the hub after contracting. The equation that gives the temperature to which the trunnion has to be cooled to obtain the desired contraction is given by f T 10 88318 . 10 74363 . 10 38292 . 10 50598 . 2 4 2 7 3 10 T T T T f f f f f f T Use the Newton-Raphson method of finding roots of equations to find the temperature to which the trunnion has to be cooled. Conduct three iterations to estimate the root of the above equation. Find the absolute relative approximate error at the end of each iteration and the number of significant digits at least correct at the end of each iteration.
