Question

Given: The temperature of an ice bath is measured numerous times with a digitalthermometer. The true temperature of the ice bath is 0.0000°C. The sample mean temperature is T=-0.0125°C The sample standard deviation of all the readings is 0.0341°C We assume that the precision errors in the readings are purely random : Write T in standard engineering format, T = -0.0125 ± : Calculate the bias error (also called systematic error). Calculate the probability that any random reading is greater than 0°C.
