Problem 45E

A machine that produces ball bearings has initially been set so that the true average diameter of the bearings it produces is .500 in. A bearing is acceptable if its diameter is within .004 in. of this target value. Suppose, however, that the setting has changed during the course of production, so that the bearings have normally distributed diameters with mean value .499 in. and standard deviation .002 in. What percentage of the bearings produced will not be acceptable?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution : Step 1: It is given that a machine that produces ball bearings has initially been set so that the true average diameter of the bearings it produces is .500 in. A bearing is acceptable if its diameter is within .004 in. of this target value . The diameter of the bearings are normally distributed with mean .499 and standard deviation 002 . we have to find what percentage of the bearings produced will not be acceptable.
