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

Analyzing a Pump System
A pump steadily draws water from a pond at a volumetric flow rate of 0.83 m 3/min through a
pipe having a 12-cm diameter inlet. The water is delivered through a hose terminated by a
converging nozzle. The nozzle exit has a diameter
Example: Cooling Computer Components
The electronic components of a computer are cooled by air flowing through a fan mounted
at the inlet of the electronics enclosure. At steady state, air enters at 20 oC, 1 atm. For noise

Example: Power Plant Condenser
Steam enters the condenser of a vapor power plant at 0.1 bar with a quality of 0.95 and
condensate exits at 0.1 bar and 45oC. Cooling water enters the condenser in a separate stream
as a liquid at 20oC and exits as a liquid
Calculating Exit Area of a Steam Nozzle
Steam enters a converging-diverging nozzle operating at steady state with p1 = 40 bar, T1 = 400 oC
and a velocity of 10 m/s. The steam flows through the nozzle with negligible heat transfer and
no significant change
Calculating Heat Transfer from a Steam Turbine
Steam enters a turbine operating at steady state with a mass flow rate of 4600 kg/h. The turbine
develops a power output of 1000 kW. At the inlet, the pressure is 60 bar, the temperature is 400
