(1) Consider the function
q(x) = r - + 41.x + 32
a. Graph the derivative q (x) over the interval [0, 6].
b. Use the backward difference formula
with h = .5
to find the derivative of q at x = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and plot the result against the
graph from part a.
c. Use Richardson's extrapolation with h = .5 to find the derivative of q at
x = 1,2,3,4,5 and plot the result on the same graph.
(2) Run the NumList.m file to obtain the data y = f(x) for this problem.
a. Use the center difference formula with step size h = .1 to find f'(x), the
derivative of this list at x = [1 : 0.1 : 3].
b. Use Simpsons method to integrate the derivative function f' '(x) over the
interval [1,3]. (The answer is a numerical estimate of f(3) - f(1) = - -92).
(3) Consider the integral
da = 2.26173770883048
1 + sin2 (x)
Divide the interval [0, 6] into 3 subintervals of length 2, use Gaussian Quad-
rature method of degree 4 (data provided in the dat.m file) to integrate over
b. Find the number of intervals needed to get as accurate an answer as in part
a (not the given answer) if we were to use the trapezoid method.
