Estimates k-factors for tolerance intervals based on Howe's method with normality assumption.

k_factor(n, alpha = 0.05, P = 0.99, side = 1)

## Arguments

n Sample size The level chosen such that (1-alpha) is the confidence level. The proportion of the population to be covered by the tolerance interval. Whether a 1-sided or 2-sided tolerance interval is required (determined by side = 1 or side = 2, respectively).

## Value

The estimated k-factor for tolerance intervals assuming normality.

## Note

This function is a simplified version of tolerance::K.factor(), only considering Howe's method.
