Acrylic bone cement is sometimes used in hip and knee replacements to fix an artificial joint in place. The force required to break an acrylic bone cement bond was measured for six specimens under specified conditions, and the resulting mean and standard deviation were 306.09 Newtons and 41.97 Newtons, respectively. Assuming that it is reasonable to believe that breaking force under these conditions has a distribution that is approximately normal, estimate the mean breaking force for acrylic bone cement under the specified conditions using a 95% confidence interval.
