No. Although scientists can monitor signs that a volcano is getting ready to erupt they are nowhere near predicting the day a volcano will erupt. They might not even be able to predict the month or even the year that it will erupt.

Kinda-sorta.It's a bit like weather reports, they can tell what's probable, and they can say if the risk in increasing or decreasing, but they can never give an exact date.Or an exact estimate of the force and duration of the eruption.No, but they try because it can save livesNot really. Although scientists can often tell if a volcano will erupt relatively soon, they can't tell when it will occur until it actually happens.

How may times does a volcano erupt in it's life?

It depends on the location and when it first erupted and how bad that eruption was. If it was really bad then it might not erupt for hundreds of years later that's just how it is. Some scientist don't know and that's the truth so there isn't an exact answer to that question.

When will mount saint helens erupt?

Predicting volcanic eruptions although part of the science of volcanology is the most difficult thing to successfully accomplish. The times between eruptions of volcanoes varies, and does not follow an exact pattern or time frame between eruptions. The only way that scientists have an idea of when a volcano will next erupt is when the volcano starts showing signs of unrest, and than it still depends heavily on what types of unrest the scientists are witnessing.
