38. There are two machines available for cutting corks intended for use in wine bottles. The

first produces corks with diameters that are normally distributed with mean 3 cm and

standard deviation .1 cm. The second machine produces corks with diameters that have a

normal distribution with mean 3.04 cm and standard deviation .02 cm. Acceptable corks

have diameters between 2.9 cm and 3.1 cm. Which machine is more likely to produce an

acceptable cork?

41. The automatic opening device of a military cargo parachute has been designed to open

when the parachute is 200 m above the ground. Suppose opening altitude actually has a

normal distribution with mean value 200 m and standard deviation 30 m. Equipment damage

will occur if the parachute opens at an altitude of less than 100 m.

What is the probability that there is equipment damage to the payload of at least one of five

independently dropped parachutes?

55. The weight distribution of parcels sent is normal with mean value 12 lbs. and standard

deviation 3.5lbs. The parcel service wishes to establish a weight value c beyond which there

will be a surcharge. What value of c is such that 99% of all parcels are at least 1lb under the

46. The inside diameter of a randomly selected piston ring is a random variable with mean

value 12 cm and standard deviation .04 cm.

𝜇 = 12

𝜎 = 0.04

a. If 𝑋 is the sample mean diameter for a random sample of n =16 rings, where is the

sampling distribution of centered, and what is the standard deviation of the distribution?

The random variable 𝑋 is centered at 𝐸(𝑋 ) = 𝜇 = 12, and its standard deviation is

𝜎 = 0.01𝑐𝑚

b. Answer the questions posed in part (a) for a sample size of n = 64 rings.

If n=64, then the center of the distribution of 𝑋 stay the same, but the standard

deviation of the distribution of the X is different.

c. For which of the two random samples, the one of part (a) or the one of part (b), is 𝑋 more

likely to be within .01 cm of 12 cm? Explain your reasoning.

Because the variability of 𝑋 is decreasing when sample size is getting larger, it is more likely

that within 0.01cm form the mean (12cm) 𝑋 will be in the second sample.

53. Rockwell hardness of pins of a certain type is known to have a mean value of 50 and a

standard deviation of 1.2.

54. Suppose the sediment density (g/cm) of a randomly selected specimen from a certain

region is normally distributed with mean 2.65 and standard deviation .85 (suggested in

“Modeling Sediment and Water Column Interactions for Hydrophobic Pollutants,” Water

Research, 1984: 1169–1174).
