CEE 304  -  Uncertainty Analysis in Engineering Homework #4 Due:   Wednesday, September 22, 2010 Read:   Sections of text 4.1-4.4, and attached  handout  on 1-to-1 transformations.  Goal:   Continuous random variables are common and useful in engineering.  This homework  tests your understanding of the probability concepts and mechanics associated with  continuous random variables, and addresses two IMPORTANT examples (normal + gamma  distributions). It uses those concepts to do useful analyses (i.e. problems 21, 23, plus Q1).  Q1 is the challenging problem this  week. Students often think instructors only want them to learn how to solve numerical problems:  students understand the methods and ideas so that they know when they can use them and  can justify what they did in a professional situation. Can you justify to your boss or client  what you did? If not, what good is your analysis?   See problem  Q2.
