Like Newton's hypothesis, the one offered by Einstein has all of the characteristics of a good hypothesis." "Like all scientific ideas and explanations," says Dave, "hypotheses are all partial and temporary, lasting just until a better one comes along." That's good news for scientists of all ages.
There are always questions to answer and educated guesses to make!
When you write your hypothesis, it should be based on your "educated guess" not on known data.
Similarly, the hypothesis should be written you begin your experimental procedures—not after the fact.
If these statements had not been written carefully, they may not have been a hypotheses at all.
A better way to write a hypotheses is to use a formalized hypotheses Example: If skin cancer is related to ultraviolet light, then people with a high exposure to uv light will have a higher frequency of skin cancer.Hypothesis statement--a prediction that can be tested or an educated guess.In a hypothesis statement, students make a prediction about what they think will happen or is happening in their experiment. EXAMPLES: Question: Why do leaves change colors in the fall?(will be worked on in class prior to due date) Your hypothesis statement will be turned in during science class, reviewed by the teacher and returned.Below is a short explanation of a hypothesis statement and some examples of hypothesis statements."As it turns out, despite its incredible explanatory power, Newton's hypothesis was wrong," says Dave."Albert Einstein (1879-1955) provided a hypothesis that is closer to the truth, which can be stated as 'objects with mass cause space to bend.' This hypothesis discards the idea of a gravitational field and introduces the concept of space as .Example: If leaf color change is related to temperature, then exposing plants to low temperatures will result in changes in leaf color.Example: If the rate of photosynthesis is related to wave lengths of light, then exposing a plant to different colors of light will produce different amounts of oxygen. One is "independent" and the other is "dependent." The independent variable is the one you, the scientist control and the dependent variable is the one that you observe and/or measure the results.Example: If the volume of a gas is related to temperature, then increasing the temperature will increase the volume. The ultimate value of a formalized hypotheses is it forces us to think about what results we should look for in an experiment.Example: If the diffusion rate (dependent variable) through a membrane is related to molecular size (independent variable), then the smaller the molecule the faster it will pass through the membrane.
