Your job is to determine the lifetime (in days, if powered continuously) which will be used in sales material for the sensor. A sample of 36 sensors is found to have an average lifetime of 352 days. (a) It is known that the standard deviation of the lifetime is 20.0 days. Find a 95% confidence interval for the population mean lifetime. (b) Now, the population standard deviation is not known, but the sample standard deviation (from the same sample of 36) is 20.0 days. Find a 95% confidence interval for the population mean lifetime. (c) Would increasing the sample size tend to make the confidence interval wider or narrower? (d) Would a 99% confidence interval be wider or narrower than the 95% confidence interval?
