WEIBULL

Returns the value of the Weibull distribution function (or Weibull cumulative distribution function) for a specified shape and scale.

Sample Usage

WEIBULL(2.4, 2, 3, TRUE)

WEIBULL(A2,A3,A4,TRUE)

Syntax

WEIBULL(x, shape, scale, cumulative)

  • x - The input to the Weibull distribution function.

  • shape - The shape parameter of the Weibull distribution function.

    • shape is usually denoted k, and denoted as alpha in other spreadsheet packages.

    • shape must be greater than 0.

  • scale - The scale parameter of the Weibull distribution function.

    • scale is usually denoted lambda in texts, and denoted as beta in other spreadsheet packages.

    • scale must be greater than 0.

  • cumulative - TRUE to use the cumulative distribution function, FALSE to use the probability density function.

Notes

  • If shape is 1, WEIBULL is equivalent to EXPONDIST with lambda set to 1/scale.
