Unformatted text preview: scientists develop new hypotheses and set up new experiments. If they happen to come across a hypothesis that appears to be correct, with repetitions of the experiment, it can be proven to be a theory. For this part of the assignment, I have chosen the question, “How does acid rain affect plants?” This question can be answered in a number of ways but one of them is with the scientific method. An experiment that could test how acid rain affects plants could be to put certain substances with acidity equal to that of acid rain onto plants. With this action, you could see how the plants react to the acidity. This would either prove or disprove a hypothesis about how acid rain affects plants. You could also find plants in areas prone to acid rain and test the reaction to the acid rain. Resource site: http://sciencefairproject.virtualave.net/scientific_method.htm...
