How can finding out that a hypothesis is not true be for scientists?

Remember that a hypothesis is a 'good' guess about a question. If a scientist comes up with a hypothesis, she will test it and then see if the testing will say 'yes'. She will then do these many times and if the answer still is 'yes' she will have it published. Many others in the same field will then review that data and they will add to the information or they may not agree.

What is the difference between scientific hypothesis and scientific theory?

An hypothesis is something which you make out of your careful observation which everyone will agree easily. But that will become a theory only when it is proved practically with experiments. I give an example , It is generally observed that whenever we have dark black clouds it is going to rain at some nearby place. It becomes a theory only when it is both explained scientifically and proved upon experiments by cloud seeding etc....I hope you get the point.

If careful and accurate scientific measurement disagree wit the measurement presicted bt theory is what?

Exactly how a theory is tested. Or rather, we should say that this is exactly how a hypothesis is tested. If a careful and accurate scientific measurement disagrees with the prediction of a hypothesis, then it never gets far enough to become a theory. But OK. Let's say that everything the hypothesis predicted was conformed by measurement, and the hypothesis was elevated to the rank of Theory. And then, 50 years later, somebody does a new measurement with better equipment, and it doesn't agree with a prediction of the theory. What happens is: The theory has to change. Either we have to find a way to adjust or modify the theory so that it explains the new measurement, or else the theory is discarded. Either way, if the measurement is trustworthy (and can be repeated by others), then the theory can't continue to be accepted in its present form.

What is oceanic theory made of?

As with any theory, it is made of ideas, and thoughts. I know of many theories involving the ocean, but none specifically called oceanic theory. I have done some research, and found nothing relating to an "oceanic theory." Scientifically speaking, a theory is one of the steps in the scientific process. 1 Observation 2 Hypothesis 3 Experimentation 4 Results (if results don't agree with hypothesis, return to 2) 5 Theory The process is repeated many times to rule out chance, and if you get the same results every time, it can scientifically be called a theory. If you continue on to scientific proof that your theory is correct and cannot be explained in by any other means, it becomes scientific law. However, very little is actually scientific law in modern science. Even gravity is only scientifically a theory.


When is the hypothesis formed in scientific method?

A hypothesis is formed after observations are made and a question is formed. Scientific Method: 1. Make an observation. 2. Ask a question. 3. Make a hypothesis. 4. Conduct an experiment. 5. Draw conclusions. 6. Share your results. 7. Do other experiments done by others agree? 8. Yes or no? 9. if no, do again.

How would you describe yourself if you are willing to accept different ideas that may not agree with your hypothesis?

If there is evidence for these different ideas, then that's almost a basic definition of a scientist. More broadly, such a person is open-minded.


What is the difference between observation and opinion?

Is the steady state a theory o a fact?

The Steady State theory is now an obsolete theory.
