new_Y = interp1(data_X, data_Y, new_X);
for linear interpolation, or

new_Y = interp1(data_X, data_Y, new_X, 'spline');
new_Y = interp1(data_X, data_Y, new_X, 'pchip');

If you want to calculate many (new_Y/X) for constant data,
use piecewise polynomial.

PP = interp1(data_X, data_Y, 'linear'/'spline'/etc, 'pp');
and ppval function.
