If < 1 , then r(x) will decrease with x (due to the negative exponent). If > 1 , then r(x) will increase with x (due to the positive exponent). If = 1 , then r(x) will be constant (due to the 0 exponent which eliminates x). 2 2 0 r sin r sin r 2 x - A - = Ar = 1 A = 1 A 1 - cos = A - dx r 0 2 2 r r 0 r r Q1) 1 2 x f ( x) strain = - cos 0 x 1 r r r r y 2 1 2 f ( y ) stress = - cos 1 r 0 y r r See attached for graphs... Q2) A random variable X numerically maps the outcomes of random experiments. The random variable itself does not have a value. Instead, it is a function that describes the set of possible outcomes in an experiment. The random variable could be used to create a probability distribution function, which describes the probabilities for various values of x. These functions take many different forms that each have their own properties. Taking the integral of a pdf can provide a cumulative distribution function, which quickly outputs the probability that the result is less than a chosen value.
