- Scientific law
A scientific law is a statement that describes the behavior of some particular thing or set of things within the natural world, with an adequately thorough history of successful scientific replication.
The term "scientific law" is traditionally associated with the
natural sciencesand hence the term is used interchangeably with the term physical laws. The biological sciencesalso have scientific laws, such as Mendelian inheritanceand the Hardy-Weinberg principlefound in genetics. The social sciencesalso contain scientific laws [Ehrenberg, Andrew S C (1999), "Even the Social Sciences Have Laws," Nature, 365 (30), 385.] .
