Abstract: We show that the $K$-functional

\begin{equation*}K(f,n^{-2} )_{p}=\inf _{g\in C^{2}[-1,1]} \bigl (\|f-g\|_p+n^{-2} \|P(D) g\|_p \bigr ), \end{equation*}

where $P(D) =\frac {d}{dx} (1-x^{2})\frac {d}{dx} $, is equivalent to the rate of convergence of a certain linear polynomial operator. This operator stems from a Riesz-type summability process of expansion by Legendre polynomials. We use the operator above to obtain a linear polynomial approximation operator with a rate comparable to that of the best polynomial approximation.
