Buffon’s needle - LMSE Christchurch Centre
Testing the Approximation of pi by Buffon’s Needle Test.
This project is designed to investigate Buffon’s Needle experiment. We replicated the concept of Buffon’s Needle and tested the null hypothesis that the outcomes from tossing a needle are directly related to pi. The Delta Method and Monte Carlo methods have been employed in this project.
