Theories, hypotheses, and laws form the life-blood of chemistry. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, conduct research on scientific theories, hypotheses, and laws. Based on your research, answer the following:
- What do you think is the difference between a scientific theory, scientific hypothesis, and scientific law?
- Is there a sequential move from one to another; amongst scientific law, theory, and a hypothesis?
- Describe controlled conditions to find a scientific solution to a problem.
Discussion Question 2
Every measurement has a measurement uncertainty. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, conduct research on measurement uncertainty. Based on your understanding, respond to the following:
- How can precise and accurate measurement be achieved in spite of the inherent measurement uncertainty? (You will want to define accuracy and precision).
- What are the types of measurement errors? Explain at least three such errors.
