Salaries for teachers in a particular elementary school district are normally distributed with a mean of $44,000 and a standard deviation of $6500. We randomly survey 10 teachers from that district.

Find the probability that the teachers earn a total of over $400,000.
Find the 90th percentile for an individual teacher’s salary.
Find the 90th percentile for the average teachers’ salary.
If we surveyed 70 teachers instead of 10, graphically, how would that change the distribution for
$\overline{X}$ ?
If each of the 70 teachers received a $3000 raise, graphically, how would that change the distribution for
$\overline{X}$ ?
The distribution of income in some Third World countries is considered wedge shaped (many very poor people, very few middle income people, and few to many wealthy people). Suppose we pick a country with a wedge distribution. Let the average salary be $2000 per year with a standard deviation of $8000. We randomly survey 1000 residents of that country.

How is it possible for the standard deviation to be greater than the average?
Why is it more likely that the average of the 1000 residents will be from $2000 to $2100 than from $2100 to $2200?

Is it likely that an individual stayed more than 5 days in the hospital? Why or why not?
Is it likely that the average stay for the 80 women was more than 5 days? Why or why not?
Which is more likely:
an individual stayed more than 5 days; or
the average stay of 80 women was more than 5 days?
If we were to sum up the women’s stays, is it likely that, collectively they spent more than a year in the hospital? Why or why not?
In 1940 the average size of a U.S. farm was 174 acres. Let’s say that the standard deviation was 55 acres. Suppose we randomly survey 38 farmers from 1940. (Source: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture)

In words, describe the distribution of stock prices.
Randomly average 5 stock prices together. (Use a random number generator.) Continue averaging 5 pieces together until you have 10 averages. List those 10 averages.
Use the 10 averages from (e) to calculate:

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
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.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?
