Abstract:

Probability of a hit by a single shor or by a ten-shot burst at direct or angular approach to a square target is calculated. Parameters include dispersion in mils, distance from the target in meters, and size of the target in feet. A normal distribution is assumed. Solution by linear interpolation of normal curve areas from standard tables was accurate to 0.0002 when contrasted with integration of the normal curve by Simpsons 13 Rule in sample problems. Author
