1. The power developed by a hydraulic impulse turbine (P) by changing the penstock diameter (D) is found to be
as follows:

I 1 2 3 4
DI (M) 0.4 0.6 0.8 1.0
PI (MW) 20 50 105 180

a) Determine the corresponding power (in MW) of the hydraulic impulse turbine if the penstock diameter
is 0.9 m by fitting a cubic equation to the data using Newton’s interpolating polynomial of order 3.
b) Repeat part (a) by fitting the data with cubic splines with natural end conditions. Provide the equations
for each interval.

Create a superimposed plot for the two cases and compare. Explain possible similarities/differences of the fit.

NOTE: If Iterative Methods will be used to solve a linear system of equations, set TOL (tolerance) = 1.0 x 10-5, and
use the absolute error and L∞ norm criterion as your stopping conditions.
2. An engineer uses a temperature sensor mounted in a thermowell to measure the temperature in a continuous
stirred tank reactor (CSTR). The engineer notes that the measured reactor temperature has been cycling
approximately sinusoidally.

## The temperature was modeled, yielding the following expression:

   
T  t   20  10 1  e 2t sin e t  1

Determine the integral of the temperature function from t = 0 to t = 4 minutes using Adaptive Quadrature and
set TOL (tolerance) = 1.0 x 10-5. Simpson’s 1/3 Rule should be used as basis for integration.
