Mathematics
The burning rates of two different solidfuel propellants used in aircrew escape systems are being studied. It is known that both propellants have approximately the same standard deviation of burning rate; that is σ_{1} = σ _{2} = 3 centimeters per second. Two random samples of n_{1} = 20 and n_{2} = 20 specimens are tested; the sample mean burning rates are = 18 centimeters per second and = 24 centimeters per second.
(a) Test the hypothesis that both propellants have the same mean burning rate. Use α = 0.05.
(b) What is the Pvalue of the test in part (a)?
(c) What is the βerror of the test in part (a) if the true difference in mean burning rate is 2.5 centimeters per second?
(d) Construct a 95% confidence interval on the difference in means μ_{1} – μ_{2}. What is the practical meaning of this interval?
