f(x_1,y_1,x_2,x_3,y_3):=y_2 = (((x_2-x_1)*(y_3-y_1))/(x_3-x_1)) + y_1

x_1 = (Value)

y_1 = (Value)

x_2 = (Value)

y_2 = Unknown

x_3 = (Value)

y_3 = (Value)

To use just perform f(1,1,2.5,10,10) and ENTER

The result should be a direct linear interpolation with y_2 = 2.5

I hope this helps.

Though I recommend just using the EES software package, if it is available at your school and you can use it on an exam. It comes preloaded with almost all tabulated values of entropy, enthalpy, specific heat...etc etc.

Thank you, I will check it out. The linear fit as well.
