Assignment Help Physics
##### Reference no: EM131032574

Problem:

Nickels falling over. You may feel that it is obvious that the probability of a head in tossing a coin is about 1/2 because the coin has two faces. Such opinions are not always correct. Stand a nickel on edge on a hard, flat surface. Pound the surface with your hand so that the nickel falls over.

Required:

1. What is the probability that it falls with heads upward? Make at least 50 trials to estimate the probability of a head.
