A chemist wishes to estimate the concentration of particles in a certain suspension.She withdraws 3mL of the suspension and counts 48 particles. Estimate the concentration in panicles per mL and find the uncertainty in the estimate.

Solution

Step 1 of 2

Here we have to estimate the no. of particles in a certain suspension and uncertainty in the estimate

Let X represents the no. of particles in 3 ml of suspension

Let represents the true no.of particles in one ml

Then XPoisson(3)
