EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Announcements Print out Learning Center documents, read them, and bring them to Learning Center There’s a typo in HW2 Betting on a Design2 should be (1.25, 27)

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Note on polyfit Note that polyfit only finds coefficients of line (slope and intercept). It does not plot the line. –need to add plot command to do this Betting on a Design3 x = 0:.2:1; y_exp = [1.4 1.1 3.3 2.4 3.8 3.0]; c = polyfit(x, y_exp, 1); m = c(1); % slope b = c(2); % intercept y_fit = m*x + b; plot(x, y_exp, 'o') % plot experimental data hold on plot(x, y_fit, 'r') % plot best-fit line hold off

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame From last class Basis function determines the empirical model. Statistic is a numerical value that characterizes a dataset. –Mean or average (see also median and mode) –Standard deviation –Coefficient of variation Uncertainty can be epistemic or aleatory. Error can be systematic or random. Betting on a Design4

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Firing at a Target Adjust the pullback distance X of the slingshot to hit a target at a distance D downrange. How likely is it that a softball launched with a pullback of 1 m will land within 1 m of 17 m? Betting on a Design5  = 17.2 m  = 1.4 m

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Where to Aim the Slingshot? Suppose that you are required to take the following bet: –You will be paid \$1 to launch a ball to less than 18 m. –But you will be fined \$5 for each launch shorter than 16 m What target distance should you aim for to maximize your gain? –How would you solve it? What would you do differently if the fine were increased to \$50? Betting on a Design win \$1 lose \$5 6

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Probability The relative frequency of possible outcomes It is measured on a scale from 0 to 1 Estimate probability by running an experiment with multiple trials –and counting number of favorable/unfavorable outcomes Betting on a Design estimated experimental probability of winning number of successful outcomes total number of trials = probability of losing1 – probability of winning = 7

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Coin toss Suppose we run an experiment where we toss a coin 3 times H, H, T What are the possible probabilities of the coin coming up “heads” that we could estimate from this experiment? 2/3 ≈ 0.6667 = 66.67% What effect would using more trials have on our estimate? 1/2 = 0.5 = 50% Betting on a Design8

EG 10111/10112 Introduction to Engineering Copyright © 2009 University of Notre Dame Example: Rolling a Die Given a fair 6-sided die, what is your expected gain if: –you win \$5 if you roll 1 or 6 –you lose \$2 if you roll 2, 3, 4, or 5 Should you take this bet? Betting on a Design10 % simulation n = 100000; r = randi(6,1,n); wins = sum(r==1|r==6); losses = sum(r==2|r==3|r==4|r==5); simulated_gain = (5*wins - 2*losses)/n % theory p = 2; a = 5; q = 4; b = -2; theoretical_gain = (p*a + q*b)/(p + q) %#ok

Estimate the probability that: –ball lands within 1 m of the target at 17 m. –ball lands short of this range (>18 m) –ball lands beyond this range (<16 m) Betting on a Design12
