# 13.7 Homework

This module provides a homework of F Distribution and One-Way ANOVA as a part of Collaborative Statistics collection (col10522) by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean.
Use a solution sheet to conduct the following hypothesis tests. The solution sheet can be found in the Table of Contents 14. Appendix.

Three students, Linda, Tuan, and Javier, are given 5 laboratory rats each for a nutritional experiment. Each rat's weight is recorded in grams. Linda feeds her rats Formula A, Tuan feeds his rats Formula B, and Javier feeds his rats Formula C. At the end of a specified time period, each rat is weighed again and the net gain in grams is recorded. Using a significance level of 10%, test the hypothesis that the three formulas produce the same mean weight gain.

Weights of student lab rats
Linda's rats Tuan's rats Javier's rats
43.5 47.0 51.2
39.4 40.5 40.9
41.3 38.9 37.9
46.0 46.3 45.0
38.2 44.2 48.6

• ${H}_{o}$ : ${\mu }_{L}={\mu }_{T}={\mu }_{J}$
• $\text{df}\left(n\right)=2$ ; $\text{df}\left(d\right)=\text{12}$
• 0.67
• 0.5305
• Decision: Do not reject null; Conclusion: There is insufficient evidence to conclude that the means are different.

A grassroots group opposed to a proposed increase in the gas tax claimed that the increase would hurt working-class people the most, since they commute the farthest to work. Suppose that the group randomly surveyed 24 individuals and asked them their daily one-way commuting mileage. The results are below. Using a 5% significance level, test the hypothesis that the 3 mean commuting mileages are the same.

working-class professional (middle incomes) professional (wealthy)
17.8 16.5 8.5
26.7 17.4 6.3
49.4 22.0 4.6
9.4 7.4 12.6
65.4 9.4 11.0
47.1 2.1 28.6
19.5 6.4 15.4
51.2 13.9 9.3

Refer to Exercise 13.8.1 . Determine whether or not the variance in weight gain is statistically the same among Javier’s and Linda’s rats.

• $\text{df}\left(n\right)=4$ ; $\text{df}\left(d\right)=4$
• 3.00
• $2\left(0\text{.}\text{1563}\right)=0\text{.}\text{3126}$ . Using the TI-83+/84+ function 2-SampFtest, you get the the test statistic as 2.9986 and p-value directly as 0.3127. If you input the lists in a different order, you get a test statistic of 0.3335 but the p-value is the same because this is a two-tailed test.
• Decision: Do not reject null; Conclusion: There is insufficient evidence to conclude that the variances are different.

Refer to Exercise 13.8.2 above . Determine whether or not the variance in mileage driven is statistically the same among the working class and professional (middle income) groups.

For the next two problems, refer to the data from Terri Vogel’s Log Book.

Examine the 7 practice laps. Determine whether the mean lap time is statistically the same for the 7 practice laps, or if there is at least one lap that has a different mean time from the others.

• $\text{df}\left(n\right)=6$ ; $\text{df}\left(d\right)=\text{98}$
• 1.69
• 0.1319
• Decision: Do not reject null; Conclusion: There is insufficient evidence to conclude that the mean lap times are different.

Examine practice laps 3 and 4. Determine whether or not the variance in lap time is statistically the same for those practice laps.

For the next four problems, refer to the following data.

Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well

Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
