In a study conducted at Virginia Tech, the plasma ascorbic acid levels of pregnant women were compared for smokers versus nonsmokers. Thirty-two women in the last three months of pregnancy, free of major health disorders and ranging in age from 15 to 32 years, were selected for the study. Prior to the collection of 20 ml of blood, the participants were told to avoid breakfast, forgo their vitamin supplements, and avoid foods high in ascorbic acid content. From the blood samples, the following plasma ascorbic acid values were determined, in milligrams per 100 milliliters: Plasma Ascorbic Acid Values Nonsmokers Smokers 0.97 1.16 0.48 0.72 0.86 0.71 1 0.85 0.98 0.81 0.58 0.68 0.62 0.57 1.18 1.32 0.64 1.36 1.24 0.98 0.78 0.99 1.09 1.64 0.9 0.92 0.74 0.78 0.88 1.24 0.94 1.18 Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a difference between plasma ascorbic acid levels of smokers and nonsmokers? Assume that the two sets of data came from normal populations with unequal variances. Use a P-value.

A taxi company manager is trying to decide whether the use of radial tires instead of regular belted tires improves fuel economy. Twelve cars were equipped with radial tires and driven over a prescribed test course. Without changing drivers, the same cars were then equipped with regular belted tires and driven once again over the test course. The gasoline consumption, in kilometers per liter, was recorded as follows: Kilometers per Liter Radial Tires Belted Tires 4.2 4.1 4.7 4.9 6.6 6.2 7 6.9 6.7 6.8 4.5 4.4 5.7 5.7 6 5.8 7.4 6.9 4.9 4.7 6.1 6 5.2 4.9

According to published reports, practice under fatigued conditions distorts mechanisms that govern performance. An experiment was conducted using 15 college males, who were trained to make a continuous horizontal right-to-left arm movement from a micro switch to a barrier, knocking over the barrier coincident with the arrival of a clock sweep hand to the 6 oclock position. The absolute value of the difference between the time, in milliseconds, that it took to knock over the barrier and the time for the sweep hand to reach the 6 oclock position (500 msec) was recorded. Each participant performed the task five times under prefatigue and postfatigue conditions, and the sums of the absolute differences for the five performances were recorded. Absolute Time Differences Subject Prefatigue Postfatigue 1 158 91 2 92 59 3 65 215 4 98 226 5 33 223 6 89 91 7 148 92 8 58 177 9 142 134 10 117 116 11 74 153 12 66 219 13 109 143 14 57 164 15 85 100 An increase in the mean absolute time difference when the task is performed under postfatigue conditions would support the claim that practice under fatigued conditions distorts mechanisms that govern performance. Assuming the populations to be normally distributed, test this claim.
