UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO SE125 - Fall Quarter 2018 Department of Structural Engineering Instructor: Joel P. Conte SE 125: Statistics, Probability and Reliability Homework Set # 6, due on Monday December 3 Problem 1 The random variable X is Gaussian with a mean X 30 P and a standard deviation X 6 V . Derive the CDF and PDF of X, in this order, conditional on the event ^ ` E 28 X 38 ± d . Plot ² ³ X|E f x | E and ² ³ X|E F x | E using Matlab. Problem 2 The kinetic energy of a particle with mass m and velocity V is given by 2 mV X 2 Suppose that m is deterministic (constant) and V is random with PDF given by ² ³ 2 2 bv V for v 0 a v e f v elsewhere 0 , , ´ ­ ! ° ® ° ¯ Determine the PDF of X, ² ³ X f x . Problem 3 The random variable X is normally distributed with mean X 1 P and standard deviation X 1 V . Let Y 2X Derive the CDF of Y, ² ³ Y F y , and the PDF of Y, ² ³ Y f y , in that order.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
