Question

Assume that trees are subjected to different levels of carbon dioxide atmosphere with 7% of the trees in a minimal growth condition at 340 parts per million (ppm), 12% at 460 ppm (slow growth), 46% at 530 ppm (moderate growth), and 35% at 630 ppm (rapid growth). What is the mean and standard deviation of the carbon dioxide atmosphere (in ppm) for these trees? The mean is ppm. [Round your answer to one decimal place (e.g. 98.7).] The standard deviation is ppm. [Round your answer to two decimal places

Answer #1

Here, we have given that

Xi: carbon dioxide minimal growth condition at parts per million (ppm)

Xi |

340 |

460 |

530 |

630 |

n= number of observations=4

Now, we want to find the mean and standard deviation

=Sample Mean =

and

S=Sample standard deviation =

=

=121.93

we get the mean = 490.0 ppm

and Sample standard deviation = 121.93 ppm

Assume that trees are subjected to different levels of carbon
dioxide atmosphere with 8% of the trees in a minimal growth
condition at 350 parts per million (ppm), 12% at 440 ppm (slow
growth), 47% at 540 ppm (moderate growth), and 33% at 670 ppm
(rapid growth). What is the mean and standard deviation of the
carbon dioxide atmosphere (in ppm) for these trees? The mean is
ppm. [Round your answer to one decimal place. The standard
deviation is ppm....

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the primary gases contributing to
the greenhouse effect and global warming. The mean amount of CO2 in
the atmostphere for June 2018 was 410.79 parts per million (ppm).
Suppose 40 atmostpheric samples were selected at random in July
2018 and the standard deviation for CO2 in the atmosphere was found
to be ?=20 ppm.
a) Find the probability that the sample mean CO2 level is less
than 405 ppm. Give your answer to four...
