Question

When studying radioactive material, a nuclear engineer found that over 365 days, 1,000,000 radioactive atoms decayed to 979,293 radioactive atoms, so 20,707 atoms decayed during 365 days.

a. Find the mean number of radioactive atoms that decayed in a day.

b. Find the probability that on a given day, 50 radioactive atoms decayed.

Answer #1

X : number of atoms decayed per day

the number of atoms decayed is random and the decaying is uniformly distributed.

so, we can say that,

a). **the mean
number of radioactive atoms that decayed in a day
be:-**

b). the pmf of the distribution is:-

**the probability
that on a given day, 50 radioactive atoms decayed
be:-**

When studying radioactive material, a nuclear engineer found
that over 365 days, 1,000,000 radioactive atoms decayed to comma
970,128 radioactive atoms, so 29,872 atoms decayed during 365
days.
a. Find the mean number of radioactive atoms that decayed in a
day.
b. Find the probability that on a given day, 50 radioactive
atoms decayed.

When studying radioactive material, a nuclear engineer found
that over 365 days, 1,000,000 radioactive atoms decayed to 979,634
radioactive atoms, so 20,366 atoms decayed during 365 days
a. Find the mean number of radioactive atoms that decayed in a
day.
b. Find the probability that on a given day, 51 radioactive
atoms decayed.

Radioactive atoms are unstable because they have too much
energy. When they release their extra energy, they are said to
decay. When studying a particular radioactive element, it is found
that during the course of decay over 365 days, 1,000,000
radioactive atoms are reduced to 986,949 radioactive atoms.
Find the mean number of radioactive atoms lost through decay in a
day.

Find the probability that on a given day 30 radioactive atoms
decayed.

A civil engineer has been studying the frequency of vehicle
accidents on a certain stretch of interstate highway. Longterm
history indicates that there has been an average of 1.74 accidents
per day on this section of the interstate. Let r be a
random variable that represents number of accidents per day. Let
O represent the number of observed accidents per day based
on local highway patrol reports. A random sample of 90 days gave
the following information.
