Explain what the difference is between a scientific law and a scientific theory.

My answer: A scientific theory predicts why something might happen and when more information goes into the theory it can better predict. But a law is something that no matter what will always be true.

Do you think this is right? Am I wrong or is there a better way to explain it?

  5. In general, a scientific law is the description of an observed phenomenon. It doesn't explain why the phenomenon exists or what causes it. The explanation of a phenomenon is called a scientific theory.

    I hope this helped :D

  6. A theory is a group of related hypotheses that can be accepted as true based on repeated investigations with similar results. A law is a scientific concept that explains what patterns of behavior will be seen through repeated investigations.
