Define degrees of freedom in the context of t-tests.
The t test is used to check if the averages of two groups are statistically different from each other or not. Moreover, the significant difference between the two groups can be analysed using t test. It is used the sample size is small and population variances are unknown and the populations are normally distributed.

Step 1
Determine the degrees of freedom in the context of t -test.
T test:
The t test is used to check if the averages of two groups are statistically different from each other or not. Moreover, the significant difference between the two groups can be analysed using t test. It is used the sample size is small and population variances are unknown and the populations are normally distributed.
The formula of test statistic for one sample t test is,
t=xμσn
Where,
x: Sample mean
μ: Population mean
s: Sample standard
n: Sample size
Step 2
The degrees of freedom in the context of t-tests is determined below:
Degrees of freedom:
When estimating the statistical parameters in an experiment, the number of data points or the observations in the dataset that are free to vary are termed as degrees of freedom.
df=n1

Let us assume that 1000 different random samples was selected from the same population and for each of them a confidence interval of the population mean was constructed (using exactly the same method) with confidence level of 96%. On average, how many of those 1000 different confidence intervals would contain the true value of the population mean?
What would be the answer if confidence level was 99%?

How is finite energy spread wholly in the infinite universe
We all know that energy is never lost, but it transforms into another form.
Doesn't that mean that energy is not unlimited? I mean, why is it that way if it was infinite?
However, if energy is spread throughout the whole world, how can something finite fully fill something infinite?
Does that mean that energy isn't finite? Or the universe isn't infinite? Or maybe there are places without any energy at all?
Of course, there is probably something stupid I'm missing, but an answer would hopefully fix that.
Note: sorry if it's a dumb question, I just heard of it and wasn't able to answer it, nor find it on the web.
