Inference–the act or process of deriving logical conclusions from premises known or assumed to be true Implicit–understood though not clearly or directly stated Control–an experiment or observation designed to minimize the effects of variables other than the single independent variable. This increases the reliability of the results, often through a comparison between control measurements and the other measurements Isotope–variants of […]
