What is a control of a science experiment?

For instance, if you wanted to experiment on plant a, plant b, and plant c. You would put plant c to one side, treat it like a normal plant (water, feed, etc.) and call that the control. You could then experiment on plant a and plant b - feeding them differing fertilisers, allowing pests to attack the plants, and so on. At the end of the experiment, you could compare the growth of plant a and plant b to the control plant c. Though plants are mentioned above, the principle relates to any experiment - you need a control to compare against the end results of the experiment.

Is there an experiment that can be performed to show that detergent affect the growth of plants?

it depends on how much power you want to have in your experiment, and how your going to test it: 1. Decide how you will quantify the data you will be collecting on plants, (e.g. - inches the plants grow, color, etc.) 2. Decide how long you are going to measure the plants 3. Decide how you will be treating the experimental group (are you going to spray the leaves? put the detergent in the soil?) 4. treat the plant with detergent however you decide you will treat them at the time you first treated them everyday, be consistent in your treatment because it effects the legitimacy of the experiment 5. Crunch the numbers when your done... GOOD LUCK!
