1. Discuss how science plays a crucial role in many courtrooms? Science is often used as evidence in a court room to prove someone innocent or guilty. 1. How has television impacted the field of forensic science? TV has created the illusion that there is evidence for every case that a forensic scientist tests. This in-turn affects how the jury expects the evidence from a forensic expert. 1. Explain the process behind the scientific method and how it has the potential to lead to a "feedback loop". Scientists observe the scene, come up with a hypothesis, make predictions about what they will find when testing the hypothesis, and lastly test the predictions through an experiment. If the evidence contradicts itself, or if the evidence creates the need for more hypothesizes, then it is like a feedback loop. 1. Explain the purpose of a trial and the roles of those in the courtroom (including the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, and scientists).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
