## What is a normal distribution? Is your alcoholic beverage survey normally distributed?

From reading the websites assigned in SQT2, answer the following questions in two to three sentences each:

• What is a normal distribution? Is your alcoholic beverage survey normally distributed?
• What does the standard deviation of normally distributed data tell you about the sample data?
• What is the likelihood of randomly selecting a data item from normally distributed data within (plus or minus) one standard deviation? Two standard deviations? Three standard deviations?
• What is the likelihood of randomly selecting a data item between two and three standard deviations above the mean?
• Describe an example of how measures of central tendency and dispersion might be used in managing organizations

Your objectives in posting, commenting, and questioning are to be sure you understand the calculation, use, and interpretation of the basic descriptive statistics covered, especially with regard to the normal curve.

• Post your initial response (250-300 words) no later than Thursday 11:59 p.m. ET

### set up and solve a case-study example of the light-intensity distribution in a photochemical reactor.

Photochemical reactor modeling: a case-study problem. Although radiation is important in heat transfer, an analogous model can be used in the design of photochemical reactors. The modeling of these reactors….

### Write a critique on this technique of secondary-emission measurement.

Secondary-emission measurement: a case-study problem. An indirect way of measuring of secondary emission from ponds or large bodies of water used in waste treatment is to measure the concentration and….

### set up a mass transfer model and evaluate the variation of the local mass transfer coefficient at various locations in the plate.

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) on an inclined susceptor: a case-study problem. An important application of convective mass transfer theory is in CVD processes employed to coat surfaces with thin films….
