(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate the pressure drag cofficient for a cylinder using the trapezoidal and simpson's rule (assume the flow is the same on both sides of the cylinder).

Angle (deg) Cp

0 1

30 0.274

60 -1.565

90 -1.3

120 -1.288

150 -1.288

180 -1.288

2. Relevant equations

Cdp = 0.5 ∫ Cp cos∅ d∅

3. The attempt at a solution

How do we apply the given data in trapezoidal & simpson's rules?

Which number represents the first value of the function (y)?
