I made two counting experiments, in both counting the number of events for one hour.
Experiment 1: 300 counts (per hour)
Experiment 2: 330 counts (per hour)
How do I determine whether the two counts differ significantly from each other ?

When testing significance we need a parameter of interest, either a mean or a proportion. We also need to know a sample size (it looks like n=1 for each experiment here) and a measure of spread i.e. standard deviation.
