Hypothesis Essay Examples

Connected battery to ammeter

The aim of this investigation is to find out the relationship between resistance and conductive putty, and to see how length of putty affects this relationship. The Experiment: Conductive putty is specially designed to be a conductor; this is achieved by adding carbon black. This can easily be used to prove the concept of resistivity… View Article

Matching Hypothesis

The Aims of this experiment was to see if there is a similarity between levels of physical appearance between couples. The method used in this experiment was very similar to that of Murstein’s matching hypothesis, using 10photos of couples split in two so there was 10 males and 10females 20 participants were asked to rank… View Article

Experimental Hypothesis

Participants who are asked to recall the word pairs using the technique of imagery by the form of a mental image will remember more word pairs than the participants who are asked to recall the word pairs using repetition. Null Hypothesis: Participants who are asked to recall the word pairs using the technique of imagery… View Article

Physics pendulum practical

Introduction In this experiment, I am going to relate the time taken for 20 oscillations with the varying lengths of string used and use this relation to find the approximate value of ‘g’ or gravity. I will do this by plotting the results of the experiment on a graph and using the gradient of the… View Article

Experiment to investigate what affects the size of a crater

Hypothesis: If the height of which the pendulum ball is dropped increases, then the depth of the crater will increase. There is a theory for this. A higher drop would mean that there is a greater gravitational potential energy. When the ball is dropped, all this energy is converted into kinetic energy and it is… View Article

Investigatin a ski jump

Aim:To investigate how the starting position of a ski jumper affects the horizontal distance travelled in the jump. I will not take air resistance, friction and other various type of energy lost into account, however in practical I have to keep in mind that they do exist and cause variation in my results. Introduction Ski… View Article

The efficient market hypothesis

Beyond the normal utility maximizing agents, the efficient market hypothesis requires the agents have rational expectations; that on average the population is correct (even if no one person is) and whenever new relevant information appears, the agents update their expectations appropriately. Note that it is not required that the agents are rational (which is different… View Article

Hypothesis and rationale

The research proposal is based on the hypothesis that the current Tactical Personnel System training needs to be more effective and hence a departure from passive slide show system to more interactive system is a necessity. The main aim is that the personnel who have to undergo interactive training will learn and absorb more information… View Article

Example a Level Psychology Experiment

Hypothesis – there will be a significant positive relationship between the scores on a memory test and scored on a test to predict your chance of being a millionaire Null Hypothesis – there will be no significant relationship between scores on a memory test and scores on a test measuring the chances of becoming a… View Article

Proving Hypothesis

Disproving a hypothesis is more difficult and complicated than proving one. The main reason for this claim is that proving a hypothesis only requires facts about the subject while disproving needs to have all the essential information about the subject and all sub-topics related to it. More so, you need to prove a hypothesis first… View Article

Dawn vs Ajax

Purpose I am doing a project on comparing two different gum flavors from the same manufacturer. I chose this topic because I wanted to see which gum flavor would last the longest. I wanted to show people that like to chew gum which gum flavor to buy because of its flavor value. Hypothesis: I think… View Article

Scientific Method and Empiricism

Empiricism is a philosophical doctrine that our knowledge only comes from experiences. It can be described as a central role of observation. Empiricism was eventually somewhat replaced around the 1970’s by Positivism, Humanism, Marxist, Feminism and Post-Colonialism. However it still plays an important role today’s society, for example in the cataloguing of species. There is… View Article

Do Childrens Feet Grow with Age

Newman (2011:35) states ‘older kids have bigger feet’. This experiment will explore through an investigation whether childrens shoe sizes do get bigger as they get older. In order for this to be proven, data needs to be collencted, this will be done so by going into a local school and verbally asking pupils and their… View Article

The Astonishing Hypothesis

John Maddox (1995) in “The Prevalent Distrust of Science” argues that there exists a distrust in the innovations within the field of science as a result of the unreliability of the scientific community regarding the various innovations that it has developed over the past years. Maddox claims that this distrust has led to the creation… View Article
