Discuss the importance ofeach step in the scientific method: why do you think scienctists utilize this type of experimentation? the only thing I could come up with was finding ways to keeps us alive, how fast the human population is growing and the economic growth and devolpment of resouces I have read all the books but for some reason I cant find any more help.
Here is a site that may help you get stuarted. I would start with the fact that the scientific method minimizes prejudicial views and mistaken beliefs about a process, procedure, or theory.
For easy reference, I've listed the four steps of the scientific method below.
Scientists need to observe and describe what they see. Then they need to come up with a hypothesis or reason that the phenomena exists. With this hypothesis, they then predict other similar phenomena. By carefully controlled experiments, they can then prove or disprove their hypothesis and whether the same conditions will achieve the same results.
I. The scientific method has four steps
1. Observation and description of a phenomenon or group of phenomena.
2. Formulation of an hypothesis to explain the phenomena. In physics, the hypothesis often takes the form of a causal mechanism or a mathematical relation.
3. Use of the hypothesis to predict the existence of other phenomena, or to predict quantitatively the results of new observations.
4. Performance of experimental tests of the predictions by several independent experimenters and properly performed experiments.
Thank you so much it was a great help your the best have a blessed day.
