Atomic Structure Lab

Atomic Structure Lab

Purpose:
This lab was designed to make the observers use their senses and by doing that, the observers would realize how difficult it was for the scientists in the 17th century to perform in their fields. Data Tables:

Ob-scertainer #10
Hypothesis Actual

Ob-scertainer #1
Hypothesis Retest Actual

Ob-scertainer #7
Hypothesis Actual

Ob-scertainer #6
Hypothesis Actual
Questions:
1. The scientific method is a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses. 2. When I am making an educated guess about observations, I am forming a hypothesis. 3. When making a guess and retesting this information, a theory or a model. 4. When you cannot see what is taking place but other senses indicate occurrences, it’s called indirect observations. 5. I arrived at my hypothesis for the configuration of the partitions in the Ob-scertainers by making indirect observations with my senses which were limited due to the Ob-scertainers. 6. It took about 2000 years to alter the Greek/Arab proposal of the universe but now alterations concerning descriptions of the universe are constantly being suggested and revised because they didn’t have the correct resources or information at the time, and scientists are still trying to obtain the correct resources and information. We have technological advances that allow us to more “directly” observe our universe. Conclusion:

My work was similar to the early scientist who tried to give us a theory (model) of the atom because in order for me to solve the problem, I required patience, concentration, an eye for detail, and ingenuity. I have these things, although, I have them to a limited amount. Just like how the scientists had a limited amount of technology required to solve their problem.
