What is the purpose of a conclusion

to explain why the data support or reject the hypothesis

What is the most important scientific process

observation is the most important scientific process.

How is observation used by scientists

A.To make experiments unnecessary B.To prevent the use of peer review C.To learn new information about the world D.To make experiments less repeatable

Answer is C. To learn new information about the world.
to learn new information about the world

When scientists use their five senses to learn new information what is this called

Empiricism .

Which statement best describes the limits of science

science cannot answer philosophical questions

What is the most likely outcome of their disagreement if two scientists do not agree on which type of grocery bag is better for the environment

Scientists do not have to agree, both can publish their results and see if peer discussion resolves the issue. If, for some reason, one point of view had to win, then much work would be involved.
In this question the definition of the word "better" would be central point of initial discussion. Does better mean:

  • stronger
  • more biodegradable
  • cheaper
  • cause less waste and pollution during manufacture
  • require less energy to make
  • have a lower carbon footprint
  • be reusable
  • sell sterilizing
  • tasty
These options would have to be discussed before any reasonable further work would be possible.


Then, an agreement would have to be made on:

  • sample size
  • analytic methods
  • applicable criteria
  • data evaluation
  • testing procedures and analysis
  • acceptable funding sources
  • acceptable bag origins
  • acceptable stakeholder input

After all this scientific study, the public (users of the bag) might not agree and could just go on using whatever bag they wanted.
