From Theorem 3.6, the conditional expected value of X is E [ X | B ] = ( a + b ) / 2 = 0. (c) From Theorem 3.6, the conditional variance of X is Var[ X | B ] = ( b- a ) 2 / 12 = 3. Problem 3.8.3 Solution The condition right side of the circle is R = [0 , 1 / 2]. Using the PDF in Example 3.5, we have P [ R ] = integraldisplay 1 / 2 f Y ( y ) dy = integraldisplay 1 / 2 3 y 2 dy = 1 / 8 (1) Therefore, the conditional PDF of Y given event R is f Y | R ( y ) = braceleftbigg 24 y 2 ≤ y ≤ 1 / 2 otherwise (2) The conditional expected value and mean square value are E [ Y | R ] = integraldisplay ∞-∞ yf Y | R ( y ) dy = integraldisplay 1 / 2 24 y 3 dy = 3 / 8 meter (3) E bracketleftbig Y 2 | R bracketrightbig = integraldisplay ∞-∞ y 2 f Y | R ( y ) dy = integraldisplay 1 / 2 24 y 4 dy = 3 / 20 m 2 (4) The conditional variance is Var [ Y | R ] = E bracketleftbig Y 2 | R bracketrightbig- ( E [ Y | R ]) 2 = 3 20- parenleftbigg 3 8 parenrightbigg 2 = 3 / 320 m 2 (5) The conditional standard deviation is σ Y | R = radicalbig Var[ Y | R ] = 0 . 0968 meters. 1 Problem 3.8.4 Solution From Definition 3.8, the PDF of W is f W ( w ) = 1 √ 32 π e- w 2 / 32 (1) (a) Since W has expected value μ = 0, f W ( w ) is symmetric about w = 0. Hence P [ C ] = P [ W > 0] = 1 / 2. From Definition 3.15, the conditional PDF of W given C is f W | C ( w ) = braceleftbigg f W ( w ) /P [ C ] w ∈ C otherwise = braceleftbigg 2 e- w 2 / 32 / √ 32 π w > otherwise (2) (b) The conditional expected value of W given C is E [ W | C ] = integraldisplay ∞-∞ wf W | C ( w ) dw = 2 4 √ 2 π integraldisplay ∞ we- w 2 / 32 dw (3) Making the substitution v = w 2 / 32, we obtain E [ W | C ] = 32 √ 32 π integraldisplay ∞ e- v dv = 32 √ 32 π (4) (c) The conditional second moment of W is E bracketleftbig W 2 | C bracketrightbig = integraldisplay ∞-∞ w 2 f W | C ( w ) dw = 2 integraldisplay ∞ w 2 f W ( w ) dw (5) We observe that w 2 f W ( w ) is an even function. Hence E bracketleftbig W 2 | C bracketrightbig = 2 integraldisplay ∞ w 2 f W ( w ) dw (6) = integraldisplay ∞-∞ w 2 f W ( w ) dw = E bracketleftbig W 2 bracketrightbig = σ 2 = 16 (7) Lastly, the conditional variance of W given C is Var[ W | C ] = E bracketleftbig W 2 | C bracketrightbig- ( E [ W | C ]) 2 = 16- 32 /π = 5 . 81 (8) Problem 3.8.5 SolutionProblem 3....
