What are the requirements for a good hypothesis?

What makes a statement a scientific hypothesis, rather than just an interesting speculation? A scientific hypothesis must meet 2 requirements: A scientific hypothesis must be testable, and; A scientific hypothesis must be falsifiable.

What makes a hypothesis falsifiable?

A hypothesis or model is called falsifiable if it is possible to conceive of an experimental observation that disproves the idea in question. A good scientific hypothesis is the opposite of this. If there is no experimental test to disprove the hypothesis, then it lies outside the realm of science.

What two words must be in a hypothesis?

The hypothesis is often written using the words “IF” and “THEN.” For example, “If I do not study, then I will fail the test.” The “if’ and “then” statements reflect your independent and dependent variables. The hypothesis should relate back to your original question and must be testable.

Can you prove a hypothesis to be true?

Upon analysis of the results, a hypothesis can be rejected or modified, but it can never be proven to be correct 100 percent of the time. For example, relativity has been tested many times, so it is generally accepted as true, but there could be an instance, which has not been encountered, where it is not true.
