Scientific Theory and Scientific Law:

Why do we need both? Lesson 1 Scientific Theory and Scientific Law

PowerPoint Presentation:

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law Scientific Theory Scientific Law Both Theory and Law

PowerPoint Presentation:

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law Scientific Theory Scientific Law Both Theory and Law Explains how nature works Biology has more of these Chemistry and Physics have more of these Describes what nature does under certain conditions (usually with a mathematical formula) Tested hypothesis Supported by large amount of data Helps unify a field of study Widely accepted by a vast majority (if not all) scientists within a discipline Can be modified if even 1 peer-reviewed experiment produces data showing disagreement

PowerPoint Presentation:

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law (Answer Key) Scientific Theory Scientific Law Both Theory and Law 2) Explains how nature works 1) Biology has more of these 1) Chemistry and Physics have more of these 2) Describes what nature does under certain conditions (usually with a mathematical formula) 1) Tested hypothesis 2) Supported by large amount of data 3) Helps unify a field of study 5) Widely accepted by a vast majority (if not all) scientists within a discipline 4) Can be modified if even 1 peer-reviewed experiment produces data showing disagreement

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law:

Why do we need both? Scientific Theory and Scientific Law

Scientific Method:

Scientific Method Organized and careful method that scientists use figure things out about nature Experiment process never really ends The conclusion (whether it ends in a description of how or a statement of what) can be changed when further experimentation shows changes should be made

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law:

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law The field of biology has more scientific theories that result from research. The fields of chemistry and physics have more scientific laws that result from research. C ell Theory Evolutionary Theory Charles’s Law: V1/T1 = V2/T2

Scientific Theory and Scientific Law:

Scientific Theory usually describes a phenomenon seen in nature. Scientific Law usually explains how a process works under a given set of conditions with a mathematical formula. Scientific Theory and Scientific Law BOTH are proven true through continuous experimentation! New cells form from existing cells Force is the product of an object’s mass and acceleration

Question::

Mass can come from energy and energy from mass (E= mc 2 ) The speed of light in a vacuum is constant and an absolute physical boundary for motion Is this a scientific theory or a scientific law? Scientific LAW Is this a scientific theory or a scientific law? Part of the THEORY of relativity Question:

Question::

Question: Is a scientific theory or a scientific law more correct? Trick question! Both are equally proven to be true through continuous experimentation.
