Weibull Distribution and Square Root Transformation

J. Ohakwe, J.U. Okeke, C.A. Nwosu, D.F. Nwosu


In this paper, we establish the distribution of a weibull distribution under square root transformation. Using simulated values, it was discovered that while the mean of the distribution before and after square root transformation are unity, the variance of the square root transformed distribution is greater than that of the untransformed distribution by a factor of at least 3.3, which increases which increases by a factor of 0.0107 ± 0.0008 per unit increase in α starting from α = 2
