Understanding Hypothesis Testing

For this activity,

You have been given the final results of this study. What are your conclusions? Describe your conclusions and how you derived them.

  • RQ: To what extent does our new composite material improve load-bearing capacity of aircraft wings?
  • Ha: Aircraft wings constructed with the new composite material will have greater load bearing capacity than aircraft wings that are not constructed with the new material.
  • H0: There is no difference between composite aircraft wing load bearing capacity and other aircraft wings.
  • Population 1: Aircraft wings constructed with a new composite material.
  • Population 2: Aircraft wings in general.
  • N=50, X-bar=61, SD=4, p=.034
