## Estimate R, and find the relative uncertainty in the estimate.

1.  Refer to Exercise 12. Estimate n, and find the relative uncertainty in the estimate, from the following measurements: θ1 = 0.216 ± 0.003 radians and θ2 = 0.456 ± 0.005 radians.

2.   Refer to Exercise 14. Assume that l = 10.0 cm ± 0.5% and d = 10.4 cm ± 0.5%.

a.  Estimate R, and find the relative uncertainty in the estimate. Does the relative uncertainty depend on k?

b.   Assume that either l or d can be remeasured with relative uncertainty 0.2%. Which should be remeasured to provide the greater improvement in the relative uncertainty of the resistance?

3.   Refer to Exercise 15. Assume that F = 750 ± 1 N, R = 0.65 ± 0.09 mm, L0 = 23.7 ± 0.2 mm, and L1 = 27.7 ± 0.2 mm. Estimate Y, and find the relative uncertainty in the estimate.

### What is the probability that the parcel was shipped express and arrived the next day?

1.  In a lot of n components, 30% are defective. Two components are drawn at random and tested. Let A be the event that the first component drawn is defective,….

### Given that the test is positive, what is the probability that the person has the disease?

1.  Refer to Exercise 28. Assume that both inspectors inspect every item and that if an item has no flaw, then neither inspector will detect a flaw. a.  Assume that….

### If a man tests negative, what is the probability that he actually has the disease?

1.  Refer to Example 2.26. a.  If a man tests negative, what is the probability that he actually has the disease? b.  For many medical tests, it is standard procedure….
