What is the difference between an interpolated point and an extrapolated point? What assumption is interpolation and extrapolation based on? Which technique is more prone to error?

• science data -

interpolated: between two known points
extrapolated: beyond the last known point

extrapolation is generally more prone to error. Both are based on the theory of differentials.
