An expression is obtained for the probability that a Weibull random variable falls after the truncation and within a finite interval. However small, the truncation in the Weibull distribution (when the value of the shape parameter is two, it is called the Rayleigh distribution) has an impact. An attempt is made to obtain generating functions for two fixed shape parameters.
