Some may think that an experiment and a study are the same. There are some differences between the two. The experiment will usually involve a lot of variables that will affect the outcome or the results of the whole experiment. A study can be done through observation or even through interviews. During an experiment, there is usually a hypothesis that would like to be tested.

Through experimentation, the hypothesis can be proven true or false. When a study is being done, this is sometimes based on the assumptions that have been created by the person or the group of people who have formulated the study. Take note that there are different types of experiments and studies that are available.

Study means careful examination and learning everything you can about a specific subject. Experiment, on the other hand, is a test under controlled conditions that are made to prove or disprove the validity of a hypothesis. An experiment is an integral part of the study, just as many teachers have their students conduct experiments to complete the course. There are also observational studies that require recording the events as they occur and drawing conclusions based on the analysis.

This process is a collaboration of both research and experiment. When the study is such that laboratory settings cannot successfully determine the objectives of the study, it is better to avoid the experiment and carry out the survey through assessment and observation.
