## Linear and Cubic Polynomial Curve Fitting for Temperature-Cp Data

AIM

To plot the linear and cubic fit curves alongwith raw data points and to measure fitness for both the curves.

INTRODUCTION:

Curve fitting[is the process of constructing a curve , or mathematical functions, that has the best fit to a series of datapoints possibly subject to constraints.Curve fitting can involve either interpolation where an exact fit to the data is required, or smoothing  in which a "smooth" function is constructed that approximately fits the data.  MATLAB PROGRAM:

clear all
close all
clc

%preparing the data
temperature=cp_data(:,1);
cp=cp_data(:,2);

%Curve fit
%Getting Coefficients of the equation using polyfit function
%Evaluating the polynomial using polyval function

coef=polyfit(temperature,cp,1);
pre_cp=polyval(coef,temperature);
coef1=polyfit(temperature,cp,3);
pre_cp1=polyval(coef1,temperature);
%plotting all the data
plot(temperature,cp,'linewidth',2.5);
hold on
plot(temperature,pre_cp,'linewidth',1.5,'color','b')
plot(temperature,pre_cp1,'linewidth',1.5,'color','c')

ylabel('Specific Heat[KJ/Kmol-k]');

%Plotting Percentage difference Curve

rmse_1 = sqrt(mean((cp-pre_cp).^2))
rmse_3 = sqrt(mean((cp-pre_cp1).^2))


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

The data contains the temperature and Cp data is called which is aset of rows and columns and a curve is plotted based on the values.Then inorder to plot a curve of best fit the coefficients of the required curve is calculated using the polyfit function and the equation is evaluated and the  cp values are predicted using the polyval function.Plotting the linear and cubic curves and finally the root mean square errors are calculated using the equation. where, pre_Cp=predicted values of Cp

Cp=Initial values of Cp

RESULTS: RMSE values: Program for curvefit of a Linear  1st Degree Polynomial using split method:

for i=1:10
coef(i,:)=polyfit(temperature(a:b),cp(a:b),1);
pre_cp(a:b)=polyval( coef(i,:),temperature(a:b));
a=b+1;
