Q. Illustrate Exponential Distribution?


These are two examples of events that have an exponential distribution:

The length of time you wait at a bus stop for the next bus.

The length of time a scientist waits with a Geiger counter until a radioactive particle is recorded.

The exponential distribution occurs when events comply with the following requirements:


Events occur randomly over time according to the following:

1. Independence - the number of occurrences in non-overlapping intervals are independent.

2. Individuality - events don't occur too close to each other (i.e. in a short amount of time the probability of 2 or more occurrences is zero.)

3. Uniformity - there is a constant rate at which occurrences occur.

If X represents the length of time we wait for the first occurrence, then X has an exponential distribution.
