# Confidence Interval Questions

A confidence interval is desired for the true average stray-load loss (watts) for a certain type of induction motor when the line current is held at 10 amps for a speed of 1500 rpm.

Assume that stray-load loss normally distributed with sigma = 2.3

A confidence interval is desired for the true average stray-load loss (watts) for a certain type of induction motor when the line current is held at 10 amps for a speed of 1500 rpm. Assume that stray-load loss normally distributed with = 2.3

To calculate the 95% confidence interval, we use the following formula:

Here, x-bar is always going to be 55.4, n is either going to be 25 or 100, and sigma (the standard deviation) is going to be 2.3.
