For instructor or TA use only: Problem Score Points 1 10 2 20 3 20 4 20 5 15 6 15 M E 345 Spring Semester, 2008 Homework Set # 7 Professor J. M. Cimbala Total: 100 1 . (10 pts) Consider the decimal number 187. ( a ) Convert the decimal number into 12bit binary, showing all your work. ( b ) Work backwards to verify your result, again showing all your work. 2 . (20 pts) Hank works for an agricultural engineering design company after graduation. One of his first assignments is to improve the performance of a machine that separates grain using highspeed air jets. Hank test 12 of the jets, measuring the average velocity produced by each jet (in units of m/s). Lets call this sample A. Then Hank makes a modification to 10 jets, and retests them in the otherwise identical conditions. Lets call this sample B. An Excel spreadsheet accompanies this homework set. It contains both data sets. ( a ) Perform a twosided independent samples hypothesis test by hand, and calculate the percentage confidence level (to three significant digits) that there is a change in the jet speed. Note : by hand means you may use Excel for the calculations, but you cannot use the builtin macro for a twosample ttest. In other words, calculate the test....
