  • Biostatistics & Probability
    gases The average delivery was computed to be 5 5 µl minute With 95 confidence can we conclude that this diffusion cell is biased its performance is dependent on the molecular weight 2 A certain drug is claimed to reduce the sugar level in diabetics by more than 50 units with a variance of 16 A randomly selected group of 30 people taking this drug was screened to measure their sugar levels It was found that the average drop in the sugar level was approximately 48 units Can we conclude that this drug is not as efficient as it was claimed to be or this average of 48 units was obtained just by chance Test this hypothesis with 95 confidence 3 The manufacturers of the drug in the above problem were not very happy with this result To back up their claim they conducted their own study using a randomly selected group of ten people Their results were identical to those obtained above With the same confidence can they continue to claim the effectiveness of this drug and why 4 A safety group wishes to maintain the reputable standards of their on site training procedures To do so they normally demonstrate the efficiency of their fire extinguishers claiming that their equipment on the average can put out a fire in a short period of time with a variance not exceeding 70 seconds 2 Twenty of those extinguishers were purchased and tested and the results indicated an average time of 4 minutes fire for all extinguishers with a variance of 100 seconds 2 Can we conclude that the obtained variance is significantly different from the variance claimed Test this hypothesis at 0 05 level of significance State your assumptions if any 5 The average age of patients with mesothelioma an asbestos related cancer is 62 years A recent study of 30 cases indicated that their average age was 60 years with a standard deviation of approximately 4 Can we conclude that the information we had prior to this recent study was fairly accurate at the 0 05 level significance 6 The average age of patients with mesothelioma was believed to be at least 62 years A recent study of 30 cases indicated that their average age was 60 years with a standard deviation of approximately 4 Can we conclude that the information we had prior to this recent study was fairly accurate at the 0 05 level of significance 7 An industry with fairly strict safety hygiene standards claims that accidents in their numerous plants never exceeds 0 02 of all their employees in any one year To test their claim the local department of health and safety monitored their records for one full year and documented 80 accidents among a total of 2500 employees At an a 0 05 test the proper hypothesis BIOSTATISTICS OSH 637 HOMEWORK SET 4 1 Two samples representing two populations X Y indicate the following results X Y n 16 24 mean 575 550 m 590 570 s 05 06 S 08 08 At an a 0 01 level of significance determine if the two populations are significantly different State all necessary assumptions 2 Women are believed to observe respect safety instructions more than men do Universal testing revealed that women on the average score at least 20 points higher than men The variances for both women and men are 12 and 15 respectively Samples from both sexes were selected and tested The results were in agreement with those universally observed the women scored an average of of 84 while the men scored only 65 Twenty were sampled from each sex Test the appropriate hypothesis with 98 confidence State all your assumptions 3 A company makes filters and filter cassettes for particulate sampling For best results the diameters of both must be compatible with tolerance for very little or no difference Twenty units were randomly selected from the cassettes with a known variance of 0 08 cm 2 and we obtained a mean diameter of 5 cm Sampling 15 units from the filters population that have a variance of 0 07 cm 2 yielded an average diameter of 4 7 cm Find the 99 confidence interval on the difference of the two means and state all the appropriate hypotheses with their respective rejection regions State all necessary assumptions 4 A company claims that their new on site training program cut the variance of accidents among confined space workers by 60 when compared to the old program Two groups 21 each were trained separately utilizing the new program for one and the old program for the other The variances observed were 100 and 380 for the new and old programs respectively Can we conclude that the new program did not cut the variance by 60 percent Test this hypothesis with 99 confidence 5 A company claims that the variance of accidents related to industrial heat welding is significantly lower than the variance obtained from accidents related to laser welding The variance obtained from a sample of 51 heat welding workers was 30 while the variance from 41 laser welding workers was 25 Can we at an a 0 05 conclude that the heat welding variance is indeed less than that of the laser welding 6 Two injection pumps are believed to be highly compatible and currently available on the market To properly decide on which type to purchase we sampled a few of each type The data was as the
