Normal Distribution

The Normal distribution is a continuous probability distribution. It models a broad range of random variables, whose logarithm is normally distributed.

The Normal distribution has two parameters:

  • Parameter 1 is the expected value or mean.

  • Parameter 2 is the standard deviation.

The example below shows the probability density function for 3 Normal distributions. Each distribution has a parameter 1 value of 1.0 and a range of parameter 2 values from 0.25 to 1.0.
