Weibull

Transform > Probability Distributions > Weibull

 

Calculates the probability densities, cumulative probabilities, and inverse cumulative probabilities for a Weibull distribution.

The probability density function of the Weibull distribution is given by: f(x;k,a) = (k/a)*(x/a)^(k-1)*exp(-(x/a)k)
