Should you generate electricity with your own personal wind turbine? That depends on whether you have enough wind on your site. To produce enough energy, your site should have an annual average wind speed of at least 8 miles per hour, according to the Wind Energy Association. One candidate site was monitored for a year, with wind speeds recorded every 6 hours. A total of 1114 readings of wind speed averaged 8.019 mph with a standard deviation of 3.813 mph. You’ve been asked to make a statistical report to help the landowner decide whether to place a wind turbine at this site.
a) Discuss the assumptions and conditions for using Student’s t inference methods with these data. Here are some plots that may help you decide whether the methods can be used:
b) What would you tell the landowner about whether this site is suitable for a small wind turbine? Explain
