Scientific Law:

Scientific Law:

Law vs. Theory Scientific Law: A descriptive statement or equation that reliably predicts

events under certain conditions. Scientific Law: Describes WHAT will happen.

Law of Gravity Every point mass in the universe attracts every other point mass with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the

square of the distance between them. Scientific Theory: A well-supported and widely accepted explanation of nature, based on observation,

experimentation, and reasoning. Scientific Theory: Describes WHY

something happens. Theory of General Relativity Explains WHY gravity

occurs in the universe. According to Einstein, the mass of an object, such as a planet or black hole, creates the conditions necessary for gravity to occur due to a curve in space-time.

Boyles Law Kinetic Theory Is the following a theory or law?

An object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Is the following a theory or law?

A bottle expands in the freezer because water is the only molecule in which its solid state is more voluminous than its liquid state. All matter is made of atoms and when energy is added, the atoms move faster and spread out.

Is the following a theory or law? An object floats because when it is wholly or partially immersed in a fluid, it is buoyed up by a force

equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. Is the following a theory or law? 10 ml of water will be more

voluminous than 10 ml of ice. Examples of Theories in Science Plate Tectonics General Relativity
