The article “Supply Voltage Quality in Low-Voltage Industrial Networks of Estonia” (T. Vinnal, K. Janson, et al., Estonian Journal of Engineering, 2012:102–126) presents voltage measurements for a sample of 66 industrial networks in Estonia. Assume the rated voltage for these networks is 232 V. The sample mean voltage was 231.7 V with a standard deviation of 2.19 V. Let μ represent the population mean voltage for these networks. a) Find the P-value for testing H0: μ = 232 versus H1: μ ≠ 232. b) Either the mean voltage is not equal to 232, or the sample is in the most extreme _____% of its distribution.

Expert Answer

Step 1

Note: here, MINITAB software is used to obtain the hypothesis test for proportion.

 

a.

In a sample of 50 batches, the mean pH was 2.6 with a standard deviation of 0.3.

Tests statistic:

Software Procedure:

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the test statistic using the MINITAB software:

  • Choose Stat > Basic Statistics > 1-Sample Z.
  • In Summarized data, enter the sample size as 50 and mean as 2.6.
  • In Standard deviation, enter a value for s as 0.3.
  • In Perform hypothesis test, enter the hypothesized mean as 2.5.
  • Check Options; enter Confidence level as 95%.
  • Choose greater than in alternative.
  • Click OK.

Output using the MINITAB software is given below:

Step 2

From the MINITAB output, the test statistic is 2.36.

P-value:

Software Procedure:

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the P- value using the MINITAB software:

  • Choose Graph > Probability Distribution Plot choose View Probability > OK.
  • From Distribution, choose ‘Normal’ distribution.
  • Click the Shaded Area tab.
  • Choose X Value and Right Tail for the region of the curve to shade.
  • Enter the data value as 2.36.
  • Click OK.
