Department of Mathematics, College of Science, University of Anbar, Iraq


In this paper, the shifted power low distribution is studied in the direction of Fractioned moment.  This type of distribution is a generalization for standard power low distributions.  In this study, the fractional definition of Caputo is used to generalize the fractional moments of the maintained type of distribution to get a closed useful form.
