Chapter 4 Examples 1. Assume the waiting time at a bus stop is uniformly distributed on the interval [0, 5]. The probability that it is between 1 and 3 minutes on any particular occasion is 2. Let X denote the vibratory stress (psi) on a wind turbine blade at a particular wind speed in a wind tunnel. An article proposes the following pdf as a model for the X distribution: (a) Verify that f ( x ; θ ) is a legitimate pdf. (b) Suppose θ = 100. What is the probability that X is at most 200? Less than 200? At least 200? (c) What is the probability that X is between 100 and 200, still assuming θ = 100?
