explain why a law is accepted as facr, but a theory is not​


  1. Answer:


    A law and theory are distinct levels in the scientific method. They do not lead to one another.

    A law is a description of an observed phenomenon in the natural world. Laws are always true and do not provide explanations as to why they hold true.

    A theory is an explanation of an observed phenomenon. It is usually based on experimental evidence and bounded most time in the limits of available data.

    • A law cannot be deposed. It is a fact and holds true at all times.
    • Theories can be discarded even with new technological advancements that provides a new way of study.
    • This is why it is not a fact.
