Similar with last question, we can use the nth order divided difference as:
So we can get:
The result of applying Newtons polynomial at i=1.15 are:
From the table, we can find that the second order version has the minimum error, so
the results will be 0.3

A mass of 8 kg of helium undergoes a process from an initial state of 3 m3/kg and 15C
to a final state of 0.5 m3/kg and 80C. Assuming the surroundings to be at 25C and 100 kPa,
determine the increase in the useful work poten

(a) We can calculate the integral
(b) The trapezoidal rule is given by:
When we substituting the value, we can obtain that:
(c) For the first segment trapezoidal rule is applied and for the next three segments Simpsons 3/8
rule is applied, and for the las
