Melatonin Activity Questions: You will be asked below to evaluate the melatonin data from this study. Please answer the following questions using the provided excel data sheet. Use full sentences, proper grammar, and show your work where necessary. 1. Develop a null hypothesis and appropriate alternative hypotheses for the conditions in this study. You should have at least three alternative hypotheses. You may create a single null hypothesis that describes all three comparison possibilities or list three separate ones. (See the example data for ideas) Null Hypothesis There is no difference between the accumulation of melatonin in caffeine during the day and the reduction of the circadian cycle impact of caffeine and wake-promotion in regular users. 2. For the placebo control participants, calculate the average (mean) and the standard deviation for the sample set by hand, using the formulas that you learned in class. Show your work. Within you excel file, use the excel formulas to also calculate the averages and the standard deviations for all three participant conditions. Do the average and standard deviation values for the placebo trial that you calculated by hand match well with the excel formula calculated data?
3. In excel, make a new table of the different conditions, the melatonin averages, and the standard deviations. Copy and paste your table here.
