Car crashes at a traffic stop arrive follows a Poisson Process with rate lambda = 2/hr.
(a) Expected amount of time until the 2nd car crash arrives
(b) P(See at most 2 car crashes during rush hour) , rush hour = 7am-8am and 4pm-5pm
(c) P( first car crash comes after waiting 2 hours)
(d) If car crashes arrive at another traffic stop according to Poisson Process with rate 3/hr, find expected time we wait until a car crash occurs at either traffic stop
(e) Car crashes at our original traffic stop explode independently with prob. 0.3, find the probability we see our 1st explode car crash after 5 hours
for (a) , Let T2 = amount of time until 2nd car crash arrives, T2~ exp (2), so E(T2) = 1/2
(d) E(time of car crash occurs at either traffic stop ) = 1/(2+3) = 1/5
Don't know how to start on the others, anything helps! Thanks so much!
