I have some data in excel from 3 experiments that are run independent from each other (they do not influence one another). Each experiment has 10 runs each. All the data across the three sets of experiments (i.e. 30 runs) have the following structure:

Time(sec), value1

0.5, 0.34

12.5, 0.39

15.30, 0.65

The time column is in seconds and the value1 column contains values from a range -1 to 1. What I would like to do is carry out a proper statistical significance test comparing the end-values from each set of experiments. So for example, from experiment 1 I will have 10 end values and the same from experiment 2 and 3.

I expect the first two sets of 10 numbers will be from around the same distribution (i.e., no significant difference) and that there will be a significant difference between their

distributions and the distribution from the values of experiment 3.

I was thinking to use an ANOVA test as it allows multiple columns to be considered. So I would:

1. State the Research Hypothesis

2. State the Null Hypothesis

3. Select a probability of error level (alpha value of 0.05 for example)

4. Select and compute the test for statistical significance

Could you help me out by describing whether this is appropriate?
