In scientific research, what is the relationship between the hypothesis and the experiment? The hypothesis states what the experiment will prove. The experiment proves what the hypothesis states. The experiment either proves or disproves the hypothesis. The hypothesis and the experiment must have opposite conclusions.

    The difference between a hypothesis and an experiment is that an experiment is a way to test a hypothesis. A hypothesis is a prediction. You predict that if you change one thing (the independent variable) the other thing (the dependent variable) will change. Then you do the experiment to find out if your hypothesis was right. Here's an example: Let's say that you think that something that is heavier will fall faster than something that is lighter. That's your hypothesis -- if we increase the weight of the object, it will fall faster. The weight is the independent variable. The speed that it falls is the dependent variable. You are trying to test what impact the independent variable has on the dependent variable.

    The part of an experiment that is not going to change is called a control independent variable conclusion hypothesis

    An experiment usually has three kinds of variables: independent, dependent, and controlled. The independent variable is the one that is changed by the scientist. To ensure a fair test, a good experiment has only one independent variable.

    So based on these statements, it won't be B.

    In science, a hypothesis is an idea or explanation that you then test through study and experimentation. Outside science, a theory or guess can also be called a hypothesis. A hypothesis is something more than a wild guess but less than a well-established theory.

    Would we rule out hypothesis?

    control and independent variable

    I did independent variable first, so it can't be.

    so control

    OK, well conclusion is a statement that says if your hypothesis was correct or not. Control is part of the experiment that is not being tested and is used for comparison.

    We had conclusion left. :)

    So, now that we have them narrowed down, which would you think would be the best/right answer?

    I think hypothesis or conclusion. I guess you could change the hypothesis though, so I don't know. It definitely isn't independent variable though.

    Yes, I think control. i believe you can change it in experiments.

    I don't believe so. It is the conclusion after all, meaning that it is the solution to the problem or hypothesis, so I would say no.
