What is a hypothesis?


Question asked by: knowitall

A hypothesis is a postulation as to what could be the case; it is a suggestion as to something that accurately models and explains some aspect in reality.

Then the hypothesis can be tested by getting it to make a prediction, then performing the actual experiment it predicts the outcome of, and see if the outcome matches the prediction.

The more experiments in practice the hypothesis can model and explain the better it is seen to be.
