Step 4 Compare the absolute relative approximate error   with the pre-specified relative error tolerance     .   Also, check if the number of iterations has exceeded  the maximum number of iterations allowed. If so,  one needs to terminate the algorithm and notify the  user. s Is            ?   Yes No Go to Step 2 using new  estimate of the root.

You are working for ‘DOWN THE TOILET COMPANY’  that makes floats for ABC commodes.  The floating ball  has a specific gravity of 0.6 and has a radius of 5.5 cm.   You are asked to find the depth to which the ball is  submerged when floating in water. Figure 3
