Problem 12E

Two-dimensional Poisson process. The number of plants of a certain species in a certain forest has a Poisson distribution with mean 10 plants per acre. The number of plants in \(T\) acres therefore has a Poisson distribution with mean 10T .

a. What is the probability that there will be exactly 18 plants in a two-acre region?

b. What is the probability that there will be exactly 12 plants in a circle with radius 100 ft? (1 acre = \(43,560\mathrm{\ ft}^2\).)

c. The number of plants of a different type follows a Poisson distribution with mean \(\lambda\) plants per acre, where \(\lambda\) is unknown. A total of 5 plants are counted in a 0.1 acre area. Estimate \(\lambda\), and find the uncertainty in the estimate.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Step 1 of  3

Here given the no. of plants in forest has a poisson distribution with mean 10 per acre

Let X represents the no. of plants

The pmf of poisson distribution is P(x) =, x=0,1,2,............

Then Xpoisson(10)

a) Here we have to find the probability that there will be exactly 18 plants in 2 acre

For one acre 10 plants

For 2 acre 20 plants

Hence =20

Now P(x=18)=

                     =0.0844

Hence  the probability that there will be exactly 18 plants in 2 acre is 0.0844
