1.
Briefly explain the relationship between hypothesis and experiment in the scientific method.
Hypothesis and experiment have a symbiotic relationship in the scientific method. A hypothesis is formed and after further testing (a.k.a
experiments), the results will tell us if the hypothesis is correct.
