Problem 10

Fission tracks are trails found in uranium-bearing minerals, left by fragments released during fission events. The article Yo-yo Tectonics of the Nigde Massif During Wrenching in Central Anatolia (D. Whitney, P. Umhoefer, et al., Turkish Journal of Earth Sciences, 2008:209217) reports that fifteen tracks on one rock specimen had an average track length of 13m with a standard deviation of 2m. Assuming this to be a random sample from an approximately normal population, find a 99% confi- dence interval for the mean track length for this rock specimen.
