I wish to use the Computational formula of the variance to calculate the variance of a normal-distributed function. For this, I need the expected value of $X$ as well as the one of $X^2$. Intuitively, I would have assumed that $E(X^2)$ is always equal to $E(X)^2$. In fact, I cannot imagine how they could be different.
Could you explain how this is possible, e.g. with an example?
