Four types of protective coatings for frying pans are to be evaluated. Five frying pans are randomly assigned to each of the four coatings. A measure of the abrasion resistance of the coating is measured at three locations on each of the 20 pans. Identify the following items for this study: experimental design, treatments, replications, experimental unit, measurement unit, and total number of measurements. Solution Experimental design: Completely randomized design. Treatments: Four types of protective coatings.

All individuals in the survey would be asked about their current disease status and any past exposures to the disease. A prospective study would identify a group of disease-free subjects and then follow them over a period of time until some of the individuals develop the disease. The development or nondevelopment of the disease would then be related to other variables measured on the subjects at the beginning of the study, often referred to as exposure variables. A retrospective study identifies two groups of subjects: cases—subjects with the disease—and controls—subjects without the disease.

4, we had two replications of each treatment. Distinct from the experimental unit is the measurement unit. This is the physical entity upon which a measurement is taken. In many experiments, the experimental and measurement unit are identical. 4, the measurement unit is the container, the same as the experimental unit. However, if the individual shrimp were weighed as opposed to obtaining the total weight of all the shrimp in each container, the experimental unit would be the container, but the measurement unit would be the individual shrimp.
