A cylindrical metal specimen 10.7000 mm in diameter and 95.000 mm long is to be subjected to a tensile force of 6300 N; at this force level, the resulting deformation will be totally elastic. (a) If the final length must be less than 95.040 mm, which of the metals in Table 6.1 are suitable candidates? Why? (b) If, in addition, the diameter must be no greater than 10.698 mm while the tensile force of 6300 N is applied, which of the metals that satisfy the criterion in part (a) are suitable candidates? Why?
ENGR 3341 Probability Theory and Statistics Prof. Gelb Week 2 homework solutions Textbook problems: Section 1.5: Problem 25: A professor thinks students who live on campus are more likely to get As in the probability course. To check this theory, the professor combines the data from the past few years: 1. 600 students have taken the course. 2. 120 students have got As. 3. 200 students lived on campus. 4. 80 students lived off campus and got As. Does this data suggest that “getting an A” and “living on campus” are dependent or independent Solution: let C be the event that a random student lives on campus and A be the event that he/she gets an A. We have: 120
