Consider the radiation data (with door closed) in example 4.10. Construct a QQ plot for the natural logarithms of these data. [Note that the natural logarithm transformation corresponds to the value λ = 0 in (4-34).] Do the natural logarithm appear to be normally distributed? Compare your results with Figure 4.13. Does the choice  or λ = 0 make much difference in this case?


The Q-Q Plot is shown below:

The Q-Q Plot is reasonably straight.

rQ= 0.978 (λ=0)

For λ=1/4,    r=0.99

So  λ=1/4 is a bit better choice for normalizing transformation.
