Benny Wong BIOG 1440 – Comparative Physiology DIS (16061) The Case of the Unlit Hallway Hypothesis 1: The filament of the current hallway light bulb is burned out. Critical Prediction for H1: Replacing the current light bulb with a new one light bulb will not have a light turned on. How to check the critical prediction for H1: Replace the current hallway light bulb with a new light bulb. If the new light bulb does not come on, then the old light bulb was not burned out. Hypothesis 2: The circuit breaker was tripped due to an overload. Critical Prediction for H2: None of the circuit breakers were tripped. How to check the critical prediction for H2: When the circuit breakers in the fuse box are

Critical Prediction for H3: The use of a voltmeter will indicate that the light switch is broken. How to check the critical prediction for H3: Use the probes of the voltmeter to touch the connections on the sides of the switch. Afterwards, turn off the circuit breaker for the hallway light and there should be no reading on the voltmeter. Remove the old light switch and install the new light switch with the wires. Turn on the circuit breakers and there should be light....
