How to calculate E(x^2) given that x are i.i.d random variables distributed as a standard normal i.e. N(0,1) ?
Thank you.

Do you know the relationship for Variance to second and first order moments? [HINT: Var(X) = E[X^2]  {E[X]}^2]. What do you know about the mean and variance of your distribution?
