- Was your hypothesis correct?
- If your hypothesis wasn’t correct, what can you conclude from that?
- Do you need to run your experiment again changing a variable?
- Is your data clearly defined so everyone can understand the results and follow your reasoning?
Finally, you’ve reached your conclusion. Now it is time to summarize and explain what happened in your experiment. Your conclusion should answer the question posed in step one. Your conclusion should be based solely on your results.
I think the tests I did went smoothly and I had no problems, except for the fact that the batteries recover some of their voltage if they are not running in something. Therefore, I had to take the measurements quickly.
According to my experiments, the Energizer maintained its voltage (dependent variable) for approximately a 3% longer period of time (independent variable) than Duracell in a low current drain device. For a medium drain device, the Energizer maintained its voltage for approximately 10% longer than Duracell. For a high drain device, the Energizer maintained its voltage for approximately 29% longer than Duracell. Basically, the Energizer performs with increasing superiority, the higher the current drain of the device.
Here is an example of an experiment that explains more about this topic. It is entitled:
It can also be discussed in the conclusion further experiments or test that could be done to support your findings in the current experiment. This part could also be called perspectives.
In the early seventeenth century, the discipline of physics at Leiden, as elsewhere, had been nothing more than a part of an introductory scholastic preparation for more advanced study in medicine, theology or law. A century later, that discipline had become at Leiden an introduction into the concepts and procedures of modern science, a new and revolutionary enterprise that was reshaping European thought and culture. The transformation of the discipline had been the work of a succession of scholars as familiar with the accomplishments of the past as they were excited by the independence and aspirations of their own age. De Voider had remarked that among the obstacles to the progress of knowledge were both the devotion to antiquity and the love of novelty, 1 and the development of natural philosophy at Leiden had been marked by a desire on the part of these professors to participate in the innovating temper of their time without repudiating the rich legacy of the past or the traditions of their profession.

Let me acknowledge that there was much need of self-persuasion to arrive at this conclusion.

A conclusion is the final process of the basic scientific method by which scientists reveal whether the hypothesis was proven correct, according to certified math and science teacher Patricia McNerney. The conclusion is one statement, backed up by data analysis, that supports or refutes the hypothesis. Conclusions may warrant further study by other scientists who recheck the original experiment.
Even if a scientist states in the conclusion that the hypothesis is incorrect in some way, other scientists may alter the original experiment based on the data and analysis. The Utah State Office of Education explains that the scientific method works when other scientists learn by attempting new hypotheses and new experiments.
Advances in science and technology are moving forward rapidly and have created unprecedented challenges and opportunities in U.S. and global health. FDA plays a critical role in protecting and promoting the nation’s health and regulates industries that are among the most successful and innovative in the world. Critical responsibilities across the products FDA regulates require application of the best available science to keep pace with these advances and make decisions and take actions that both support innovation and protect and promote the public health.
The FDA Strategic Plan for Regulatory Science identifies critical priority areas and activities where new or enhanced engagement in regulatory science research is essential to continued mission success. Successful implementation of this regulatory science plan, including engagement with diverse stakeholders, will allow the Agency to fulfill its regulatory mission today while also being prepared for the new challenges of tomorrow.
Essential Question: How do science and technology benefit society?
Science and technology benefit society in a variety of ways. Science generates ideas which are the guiding principles for technology. New technology allows increased productivity, such as the wheelbarrow for agriculture and paper money for commercial success. Technology also increases transportation, allowing for exploration, increased communication, and eventually globalization. This can be seen in the development of new bridges and nautical improvements. Paper and printing are examples of technology that change the world and benefit society in countless ways. Books and their mass production allow ideas to spread to large groups of people who may learn and then create new ideas. The use of paper and printing marked an advanced civilization, as China was more advanced than Europe until Europe began making books. Technology leads to new trade items which one country wants from another, leading to trade alliances and eventual commercial success. Technology may benefit one society and not another by leading to advanced weaponry and massive warfare.
