I have a total of 29 data points for each sample. In addition, each sample value was independently generated.
From researching on google, I have come across the t-test to determine if these two independent sets of samples have any similarities. Hence my null hypothesis is that and my alternative is the two sets of samples have no similarities.
My question is how do I go about using the t-test to either reject or accept the null hypothesis when from google they are so many different ways to calculate it?
Secondly, I assume the samples are independent because the second sample was obtained on a theoretical basis using a mathematical equation, the distance in meters is varied in steps of 1m from 1m to 29m in the Lfs term and the power is then recorded and shown in the figure below:
The second sample was determined by actual experimentation in the real world, where I purchased the equipment to actually see what results I obtained in the real world condition but the variables are not the same i.e. the GTX,GRX. The power received is also recorded in steps of 1m from 1m to 29m and is then shown in sample 1, is my assumption correct?
Below are the two sets of samples obtained.
