Main Article Content
In this paper, we introduce the length biased form of the Nakagami distribution known as length biased Nakagami distribution (LBND). Some properties of this model were studied such as the moments, reliability function, and the hazard rate function. Maximum likelihood and Bayes estimates of the scale parameter are derived. Also the Posterior risks under different loss functions are obtained. The results are applied on the data regarding the life test of 59 conductors.
