Unformatted text preview: So1ting Number: \ I ES b) (3 points) For the Newton—Raphson method of rootfinding, it is often necessary to use ﬁnite differencing to calculate a first derivative. The x-y data points below represent points sampled from an unknown function: 0.0000 —1.0000 0.1000 -0.9940 0.2000 09,721 I k I K: ~ 0.7000 —0.4218‘ 0.8000 —0. 1847 0.9000 0.1074 1.0000 0.4597 ‘\ 1w ‘ 4‘ We would like to ﬁnd the dy/dx, the slope of this unknown function, at x = 0.5. The true value of the slope at x = 0.5 is 1.229. Use forward differencing with a step size of 0.1 to estimate the slope at x = 0.5.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
