Thread: Hypothesis testing - null distribution?

1. Hypothesis testing - null distribution?

Ok, I have got my Ho and H1 values.
I have got my t statistic by using $\displaystlye t_{\text{calc}} = \frac{\bar{x}-\mu_0}{\frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}}$

I am now being asked for the null distribution of this. I assume this means something in the form of a binomial or normal distribution - but this a t distribution right? So I am a little stumped as to what I am being asked.

I think I have done all the maths and working, but am having a little trouble putting names to the different parts of it.

After reading lots of books and Googling a lot, I cannot find many references to a 'null distribution'.

T~t(d.o.f.)

Is it this? If so, WHY is it so difficult to find this information!!!!!
