Statement of a problem № m40562


Acrylic bone cement is sometimes used in hip and knee replacements to secure an artificial joint in place. The force required to break an acrylic bone cement bond was measured for six specimens, 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 has a distribution that is approximately normal, use a confidence interval to estimate the mean breaking force for acrylic bone cement.
