What is the difference between a scientific hypothesis and a scientific theory? How are hypothesis and theory different from a scientific law?

Mar 24th, 2015

 hypothesis is an attempt to explain phenomena.  It is a proposal, a guess used to understand and/or predict something.  A theory is the result of testing a hypothesis and developing an explanation that is assumed to be true about something.  A theory replaces the hypothesis after testing confirms the hypothesis, or the hypothesis is modified and tested again, until predictable results occur.
