## How do you find the standard deviation of a uniform distribution?

The variance of a continuous uniform distribution is Var(X)=(b−a)212 V a r ( X ) = ( b − a ) 2 12 , and the standard deviation is σ=√(b−a)212=b−a2√3 σ = ( b − a ) 2 12 = b − a 2 3 .

## What is the mean and variance of a uniform distribution?

The mean of the uniform distribution U(a,b) : μ = (a + b) / 2. The variance of the uniform distribution U(a,b) : σ² = (b – a)² / 12. As you’re well aware, the standard deviation is simply the square root of the variance, so you can easily transform one into the other.

**How do you find the mean and standard deviation of a uniform distribution in R?**

The Uniform Distribution in R

- The mean of the distribution is μ = (a + b) / 2.
- The variance of the distribution is σ2 = (b – a)2 / 12.
- The standard deviation of the distribution is σ = √σ2

### Does uniform distribution have variance?

The uniform distribution is used to describe a situation where all possible outcomes of a random experiment are equally likely to occur. You can use the variance and standard deviation to measure the “spread” among the possible values of the probability distribution of a random variable.

### How do you derive the variance of a uniform distribution?

From the definition of the continuous uniform distribution, X has probability density function: fX(x)={1b−aa≤x≤b0otherwise. From Variance as Expectation of Square minus Square of Expectation: var(X)=∫∞−∞x2fX(x)dx−(E(X))2.

**How do you find a and b in a uniform distribution?**

The notation for the uniform distribution is X ~ U(a, b) where a = the lowest value of x and b = the highest value of x. The probability density function is f(x)=1b−a f ( x ) = 1 b − a for a ≤ x ≤ b.

#### What is the standard deviation of a uniform probability distribution?

Uniform Distribution

Mean | (A + B)/2 |
---|---|

Median | (A + B)/2 |

Range | B – A |

Standard Deviation | \sqrt{\frac{(B – A)^{2}} {12}} |

Coefficient of Variation | \frac{(B – A)} {\sqrt{3}(B + A)} |

#### How do you find the standard deviation of a uniform distribution in Excel?

How to Use the Uniform Distribution in Excel

- The mean of the distribution is μ = (a + b) / 2.
- The variance of the distribution is σ2 = (b – a)2 / 12.
- The standard deviation of the distribution is σ = √σ2

**How do you find the variance of a uniform random variable?**

For a random variable following this distribution, the expected value is then m1 = (a + b)/2 and the variance is m2 − m12 = (b − a)2/12.
