The next chapter applies the quantum theory of observation to a few simple examples (the Mach-Zehnder interferometer, the CNOT and SWAP gates). Chapter 4 is the most important of the book because quantum entanglement is fundamental to explain the reality of observations. The difference between an observation and a theory might best be understood by looking at what each one is. In general, an observation establishes a fact, and when considering that fact, the.

Technology is the application of science. Asked in Astronomy, Cosmology. Science is based on observations of the natural world.

To qualify as scientific evidence, observations must be quantitative and ists then look for patterns in their data and might form a hypothesis to explain those patterns.

The tools of this process are logic and omers build scientific theories to increase their knowledge about the universe.A scientific theory is a broad explanation that is widely accepted because it is strongly supported by a great deal of evidence. An example of a scientific theory is the germ theory of disease.

According to this theory, contagious diseases are caused by "germs," or microorganisms. The germ theory of disease was first proposed in the mids.Fact: In science, an observation that has been repeatedly confirmed and for all practical purposes is accepted as "true."
