Example of Hypothesis Testing

Scientific hypotheses are constructed with a set of functional rules:

  • They must be testable in a way which provides facts which prove or disprove the hypothesis.
  • A hypothesis should be 'falsifiable', meaning it must show a capability to be proven wrong. This is a conceptual standard which means you can't have a hypothesis and simply produce facts which match the hypothesis and avoid those that disprove it.

Examples of Hypothesis Testing:

In this test, if the flower turns red, the soil is acid.
The flower will either turn red or blue, depending on whether the soil is acid or alkaline.
