Abstract

Part of the primary motto of this journal is to provide engineering approaches to enhance the power of the scientific method. The engineering approach is essentially the engineering design process.

An experiment is tested to prove or disprove the hypotheses. The results of the experiment are discussed in the context of the original question and whether the hypothesis was proven or not.
