Numerical Differentiation using Newtons Backward Formula
(Submission date: 11-02-2010)
Solve following problems using Newtons Backward Difference Formula for tabulated
and non-tabulated points (corrected up to 5 decimal places). Also write a computer code
for this formula and compare the program output with calculated results.
