secant method derivation
Secant Method – Derivation

Newton’s Method

(1)

Approximate the derivative

(2)

Substituting Equation (2) into Equation (1) gives the Secant method

Secant Method – Derivation

The secant method can also be derived from geometry:

The Geometric Similar Triangles

can be written as

On rearranging, the secant method is given as

algorithm for secant method
Algorithm for Secant Method

http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu

step 1
Step 1

Calculate the next estimate of the root from two initial guesses

Find the absolute relative approximate error

http://numericalmethods.eng.usf.edu

step 2
Step 2

Find if the absolute relative approximate error is greater than the prespecified relative error tolerance.

If so, go back to step 1, else stop the algorithm.

Also check if the number of iterations has exceeded the maximum number of iterations.

example 1
Example 1

You have a spherical storage tank containing oil. The tank has a diameter of 6 ft. You are asked to calculate the height, h, to which a dipstick 8 ft long would be wet with oil when immersed in the tank when it contains 4 ft3 of oil.

Figure 2 Spherical Storage tank problem.

example 1 cont
Example 1 Cont.

The equation that gives the height, h, of liquid in the spherical tank for the given volume and radius is given by

Use the secant method of finding roots of equations to find the height, h, to which the dipstick is wet with oil. Conduct three iterations to estimate the root of the above equation. Find the absolute relative approximate error at the end of each iteration and the number of significant digits at least correct at the end of each iteration.
