Mathematical probability is how many times something is projected to occur, where as experimental probability is how many times it actually occurred.

For example, when discussing the probability of a coin landing heads side up...

Mathematical probability is 1:2.

However, if you actually carryout an experiment flipping the coin 5 times the Experimental probability may be 2:5

The difference between theoretical probability and experimental probability is that theoretical probability is more of a CHANCE, and experimental probability is when you actually TEST it.

The difference between experimental probability and theoretical probability is that experimental probability is the probability determined in practice. Theoretical probability is the probability that should happen. For example, the theoretical probability of getting any single number on a number cube is one sixth. But maybe you roll it twice and get a four both times. That would be an example of experimental probability.

Probability is more of a mathematical statisic whereas chance is more of luck or fortunance.

what is the difference between non experimental research and experimental research?

In experimental probability the probabilities of the outcomes are calculated as the proportion of "successful" outcomes in repeated trials. In theoretical probability these are calculated on the basis of laws of science being applied to a model of the experiment. For example, to find the probability of rolling a six on a standard die, you could roll the die many times (N) and count the number times that it comes up 6 (n). The experimental probability is n/N. The theoretical approach would be to work from the principle that each outcome was equally likely - since it is a fair die - and since the total probability must be 1, the probability of any one face must be 1/6. The second method will only work if there is a good mathematical model.

experimental probability involves conducting numerous amounts of trials of an experiment and theoretical is determining that a certain outcome will occur through reasoning and calulation.
