The vapor pressures of 1-chlorotetradecane at several temperatures are tabulated here. Implement an automated procedure to calculate the vapor pressures at the following temperatures using two-point interpolation from the data above. $T(_{∘}C)p_{∗}(mmHg)$ 144.9 211.0 148.5 121.3 169.0

Here we are given the different values of partial pressures at different temperatures. And the intermediate pressure values at intermediate temperature values are calculated using a two-point interpolation method.

Part 1:

Here the partial pressure of 1-chlorotetradecane is to be calculated at, . Take two points from the tabulated values so that this temperature value lies in between them.

Using the two-point interpolation value, the partial pressure at is given by:

Substitute the known values, we get
