Unformatted text preview: t is Gaussian and want to check this hypothesis. To do this (a) Find the mean t and variance of the data. (b) Group the values of t into four bins with boundaries t- , t , and t + and count the observed number O k in each bin k = 1 , 2 , 3 , 4. Assuming the measurements were normally distributed with the mean t and variance calculated above, nd the expected number E k in each bin. Calculate 2 . Is there any reason to doubt that the measurements are normally distributed? (c) How many degrees of freedom are there in this problem? 1...
