Let's discuss what is an experiment

We all do experiments in our school, college, workplace, home, kitchen, playground, etc…

Let us discuss why we say something is an experiment,…

Does all study need to be experimental based…

What makes so unique about experimentation…

It would be interesting to have responses from Cubists :heart_eyes:

P.S. the discussion here is about the characteristics of experimentation…Use examples from the experiments that you are working on…

Everything we do is an experiment. If we go according to definition it is-“a scientific procedure undertaken to make a discovery, test a hypothesis, or demonstrate a known fact.” Now if we try to apply it to daily life like why we brush our teeth in the morning after we wake up? Is a type of test we do to demonstrate the known fact … For me personally experiment is anything, not only concentrated to what we do in the lab, it is the basic stuff that we do or else we can say everything we do is an experiment, just we have to look in from our scientific mindset; we can find that- we all are the scientists and do experiment every moment @meena74 @Arunan @G_N

Experiments are nothing but trial and error methods to understand some possibilities or understand some important concepts which normally cant be explained just theoretically.
So we all do experiments since our 8th std to either learn a concept , to find an element or so that it makes it easier for us to relate to some topic .
In CUBE lab we do experiments to find the reasons on why some things happen for example the color of moina turns red on excess of oxygen so we do trials to prove that yes! Thats the true reason .
Sometimes to back our theories with relevent data we need to do experiments.

Ok @bivasnag .

As per the definition mentioned by you… let us take one of the words mentioned … hypothesis

What do we understand by the term hypothesis… Is it necessary and why… What importance does it have in the experimentation.

Ok @Vaibhavib99 good discussion

why from 8th std… i can say even a child :hugs: or a primary grade student does experiment.

do you want to say that it is only by experiment that we will understand the concepts.

Ok so you are doing experiment in CUBE lab on moina… But for an experiment, don’t you think that there needs to be atleast a question to work on…

so what is the question in moina that you are asking…

also do you think an experiment is conducted always and only to prove somethings…
