5. (a) (b) What are CAD and CAM ? How do they differ {rom integrated CAD/CAM ? The specifications for a critical characteristic of an electric resistor call for it to have a resistance of 500 t 25 ohms. The process for making the resistors produces a normal distribution of measurements of resistance with a standard deviation of 5 ohms.

### 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.
