Problem 40E

Comparing the Midpoint and Trapezoid Rules

Compare the errors in the Midpoint and Trapezoid Rules with n =4, 8, 16, and 32 subintervals when they are applied to the following integrals (with their exact values given).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:-

Step1

Given that

Compare the errors in the Midpoint and Trapezoid Rules with n =4, 8, 16, and 32 subintervals

n = 4,8, 16, and 32

The exact values of the integrals are given for computing the error.

dx= 0.490874

Step2

To find

Compare the errors in the Midpoint and Trapezoid Rules with n =4, 8, 16, and 32 subintervals when they are applied to the following integrals (with their exact values given).
