Q. How do I find the value of a property between two
values on a table?
A. The answer is that we interpolate between the values; that is, to estimate the value of a function
between known points. The most com

Problem: A tank with compressed air has 150 mm outside radius and an 8
mm wall thickness. It is subjected to an internal pressure = 5 due to
compressed air. Furthermore, a collar attached to the top of the tank
