A consumer agency is investigating the blowout pressures of Soap Stone tires. A Soap Stone tire is said to blow out when it separates from the wheel rim due to impact forces usually caused by hitting a rock or a pothole in the road. A random sample of 30 Soap Stone tires were inflated to the recommended pressure, and then forces measured in foot-pounds were applied to each tire (1 foot-pound is the force of 1 pound dropped from a height of 1 foot). The customer complaint is that some Soap Stone tires blow out under small-impact forces, while other tires seem to be well made and don?t have this fault. For the 30 test tires, the sample standard deviation of blowout forces was 1353 foot-pounds.
Soap Stone claims its tires will blow out at an average pressure of 20,000 foot-pounds, with a standard deviation of 1020 foot-pounds. The average blowout force is not in question, but the variability of blowout forces is in question. Using a 0.01 level of significance, test the claim that the variance of blowout pressures is more than Soap Stone claims it is.
