1. The steps for the scientific method are listed in Chapter 1. List and explain each of the steps in the scientific method in the context of the following situation. You do not have to resolve the question; just explain the steps for resolving the question: It is well known that objects expand when heated. An iron plate will get slightly larger when put in a hot oven. Suppose an iron plate has a hole cut in the center. Will the hole get larger or smaller when the plate is heated and expansion occurs? The question is will the hole get larger or smaller than please heated and expansion occurs. Our next, we will we will make a hypothesis. This will be a hole will get larger is the plate expands. This will be experimented by cutting measured holes in iron plates and heating them and re measuring the holes at set temperatures. We will then do this again and again to ensure it is a constant and then we can create a rule. 2. Answer the following questions: a.
