% % 1.010 Fall 2008 Homework Set #5 Due October 16, 2008 (in class) 1. Two continuous variables X and Y have joint probability density function: # 1 f X , Y ( x , y ) = \$ 8 ( x + y ) 0 " x " 2 and 0 " y " 2 & 0 elsewhere a) Find and plot the marginal probability density function (PDF) of X . b) Find and plot the marginal cumulative distribution function (CDF) of X . c) Find and plot the conditional PDF of ( Y | X =1). d) Are X and Y independent? Comment. 2. According to schedule, Train A arrives at station S at 10:55 am and Train B departs from the same station at 11:05 am. Due to delays, the arrival time of Train A is uniformly distributed between 10:55 and 11:10 and the departure time of Train B is uniformly distributed between 11:05 and 11:15. If the arrival and departure times of the two trains

Unformatted text preview: are statistically independent, what is the probability that a passenger on Train A misses the connection with Train B?[Hint: Let T A and T B be the times when train A arrives and train B departs, respectively. Plot the joint range of ( T A , T B ) on the ( T A , T B )-plane and find the region that corresponds to missing the connection.] 3. Show that the function below is the PDF of R , the distance between the epicenter of an earthquake and the site of a dam, when the epicenter is equally likely to be at any location along a neighboring fault (see figure below). You may restrict your attention to a length of fault l that is within a distance r o of the site because earthquakes at greater distances will have negligible effect at the site. f R ( r ) = 2 r ( r 2-d 2 )-1/2 , d ≤ r ≤ r o l Sketch the function. Site r o r o d Fault A B l /2 l /2...

### What students are saying

• 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.
