value.
Problem 2
Two groups in physics lab have been measuring the density of aluminum at room temperature (
C).
They got the following summary statistics
n

n
Group I

2.792

Group II

2.538
0.313
(Units are grams per cubic centimeter.) Assume the measurements for group I are i. i. d.
and
the measurements for group II are i. i. d.
.We want to perform a test of
versus
.Perform Welch's approximate test, come as close as you can to the
P
value.
Problem 3
We intend to collect a series of i. i. d. measurements and conduct a test of
versus
,where
is the expected value of the measurements. The sample size will be large
enough so that we can use the ``large sample''
z
test. Preliminary studies suggest that the standard
deviation of the measurements is about 4. What sample size do we need to have power 0.90 at
for a test of size
?
