    Magnetic field of an infinite current sheet : Amperes law

    I was asked to find the magnetic field of an infinite current sheet due to amperes law. Is my attempt to the solution correct ? The final answer is correct, but l am doubtful of how l got there.

    Integration techniques

    I am a bit rusty on my integration techniques. Can someone please tell me which integration technique to use for this integral ? I don't want to anyone to solve it for me. I just want to be nudged in the right direction.

    What distribution is this

    So l generated a 100 000 data sets in Matlab each consisting of 80 random poisson distributed numbers. I then calculated the p-values for each data set and stored them into a vector which l used to make this histogram. I was wondering, what distribution is shown by this histogram

    How much variance in my p-value

    So l have a nuclear counting system which follows a poisson distribution. I have taken 5 data sets consisting of 30 counts each and l have used them in a chi squared gof test to see if they follow a poisson distribution. For each data set my p-value has been changing. Initially it was 0.5 then...

    Will 2.8 micro curie of radiation cause cancer

    I have been working with a 2.8 (decayed over summer) micro curie cobalt-57 source testing a gamma camera. I would like to know if this made my risk for getting cancer higher ? My employers say l don't need to be worried.

    Using a combination of a specular and diffuse reflector

    So l am designing a radiation detector using solid state silicon photo multipliers. On their website they tell me that the SiPM must be coupled to a Cs(Ti) crystal with a combination of specular reflector diffuse reflector film between the scintillator and detector. How does a combination of a...

    Comparing Absolute Deviation to Mean Absolute Deviation

    I am doing nuclear counting for medical imaging and l do not know the 'true' estimate of counts for my system. So to see if my system is operating consistently as l change a certain part, l am going to measure its precision. That is, as l change that part, are my number of counts within the same...

    Comparing Absolute Deviation to Mean Absolute Deviation

    I calculated 15 absolute deviations and their mean absolute deviation. Would it be valid for me to say my data set is accurate if all the 15 absolute deviations are within ±5% of the mean absolute deviation ?

    Comparing Absolute Deviation to Mean Absolute Deviation

    Hi Guys, I am trying to measure variability in a part for my sensor which l do not know the true value. So l decided that a good way to measure variability in this case would be to measure precision of my data points as l change this part on the sensor. So l was wondering, can l compare the...

    Kolmogorov-Smirnov and P-value

    I am changing around parts on the sensor and l want to know if the performance stays the same as l change the parts. In other words, l take measurements on a sensor and then change let us say a transistor, and then take measurements again. I want to compare the data from before l removed the...

    Kolmogorov-Smirnov and P-value

    Yes, it is the same. The data is generated from a radioactive source which is constant. The parameter of the distribution is one.

    Kolmogorov-Smirnov and P-value

    I just want to know if the data sets are equal, l know they have the same distribution, but l want to know if the difference in the two data sets are statistically significant or they are a cause of concern. Thanks for your insight.

    Kolmogorov-Smirnov and P-value

    So l am testing a sensor l recently developed. I am changing parts on the sensor and testing to see if my data is reproducible with different parts. I compare the data using the KS test. However, the data always have the same distribution or trend line. To test if the two data sets are the same...

    Testing to see if my data is uniform

    So l have got 16 data points and l would like to know if this data follows a uniform distribution. I have tried using the punif function in R, but l am not sure about the results l am getting. Can someone please tell me what is the best way and hopefully easiest way to see if data is uniformly...

    I want to maximize one factor whilst minimizing the other

    I have two sets of data, one represents electrical noise in a circuit and the other represents the gain in the circuit. So l varied the voltage in the circuit and calculated both the gain and the electrical noise at those voltages. Now l want to know what kind of analysis can l do to make sure...

    Can l use chi-square test in this scenario ?

    I was just reading about a single factor ANOVA test. I think l will go for that one.

    Can l use chi-square test in this scenario ?

    They are 7 parts each with 5 measurements. I want to compare 7 sets of data at the end of the day, and see if they are the same. Doesn't the t-test work in a situation you have a Gaussian distribution ?

    Can l use chi-square test in this scenario ?

    This is exactly what l am looking for. After testing a part and replacing it with another l want to know if the mean distributions of the 7 parts are equal. In other words this tells me that changing the part on my camera doesn't affect its performance. Hopefully that is the conclusion l want to...

    How is percentage uncertainty different from standard deviation

    So l guess the variance is good enough. After adding up the variances l just end up calculating the standard deviation and l will use that as the error in my equipment.

    How is percentage uncertainty different from standard deviation

    How is percentage uncertainty different from standard deviation ? I have five measurements and l calculated the average, standard deviation and variance. Do l need to calculate the percentage uncertainty ? Does percentage uncertainty give me any more information which the other values l...

    Can l use chi-square test in this scenario ?

    I will be measuring counts per pixel. So l want to know if the variance is due to random in nature, or it is due to something wrong with the part l am changing.

    Can l use chi-square test in this scenario ?

    I am testing a certain part on a camera. So l was thinking of taking a set of measurements and then change that part and take another set of measurements.After having those two sets of data l wanted to do a chi-square test in order to see if variations in how the two parts perform is due to...

    What is energy resolution

    Well, l am reading a thesis on them and the author keeps on referring to energy resolution as a % FWHM. So l really don't understand what this means.
