A new thermostat has been engineered for the frozen food cases in large supermarkets. Both the old and new thermostats hold temperatures at an average of 25F. However, it is hoped that the new thermostat might be more dependable in the sense that it will hold temperatures closer to 25F. One frozen food case was equipped with the new thermostat, and a random sample of 21 temperature readings gave a sample variance of 5.1. Another similar frozen food case was equipped with the old thermostat, and a random sample of 19 temperature readings gave a sample variance of 12.8. Test the claim that the population variance of the old thermostat temperature readings is larger than that for the new thermostat. Use a 5% level of significance. How could your test conclusion relate to the question regarding the dependability of the temperature readings? (Let population 1 refer to data from the old thermostat.)
(a) What is the level of significance?
State the null and alternate hypotheses.
H0:?12=?22,H1:?12>?22H0:?12=?22,H1:?12?22H0:?12=?22,H1:?12<?22H0:?12>?22,H1:?12=?22
(b) Find the value of the sample F statistic. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
What are the degrees of freedom?
dfN=?
dfD=?
What assumptions are you making about the original distribution?
The populations follow independent normal distributions. We have random samples from each population.The populations follow dependent normal distributions. We have random samples from each population.The populations follow independent normal distributions.The populations follow independent chi-square distributions. We have random samples from each population.
(c) Find or estimate the P-value of the sample test statistic. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(d) Based on your answers in parts (a) to (c), will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis?
At the ? = 0.05 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.At the ? = 0.05 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant. At the ? = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.At the ? = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.
(e) Interpret your conclusion in the context of the application.
Reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings.Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings.Reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings.

Step 1
Given,
n1=19,s12=12.8
n2=21,s22=5.1
Level of significance, α=0.05
Step 2
a)
Null Hypothesis (H0):σ12=σ22
Alternate Hypothesis (H1):σ12>σ22
b) F-statistic:
F=s12s22
=12.8/5.1=2.51
dfN=191=18
dfD=211=20
c) P-value = 0 .0246
d) At α=0.05 , we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant. as p-value is less than significance level
e) Reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings

How does big-O notation relate to the actual error involved in a numerical differentiation?
Suppose I have some position data x 1 , x 2 , . . . x n that was sampled at an interval h. If I wanted the velocity data, I could apply a finite difference scheme:
v 1 = x 2 x 1 h + O ( h )
O(h) denotes that the error term is proportional to the step size. ..What exactly does this mean physically? For instance, say my x terms were taken at 5 samples/second (so h=0.2). Does this mean the error in my velocity data is ± 0.2? How do I interpret the error in a physical sense, and can I write this like an uncertainty to a measurement? E.g.,
v 1 = 10 ± 0.2?
