You may hear about laboratories in news, TV series, but do you know what the job of a laboratory is? Who is in the laboratory? Is that important for a laboratory? There are so many laboratory questions. And now let us start the laboratory lesson.
What is a laboratory? Here is the definition, “A laboratory is a facility that provides controlled conditions in which scientific or technological research, experiments, and measurement may be performed.” That is, a laboratory is a place for experiments and testing. There is a long history of laboratories. The early laboratories were found in the 18th century. Researching in teams started in the 19th century, and many new kinds of equipment were developed in the 20th century. To keep the laboratory safe, only quantified people can enter the laboratory. Not all people are free to enter.
What kind of experiments or results come from the laboratory? Here are some examples. First, a lab experiment. It is an experiment conducted under highly controlled conditions, where accurate measurements are possible. Second, Field Experiment. It is done in the everyday environment of the participants. Third, Natural Experiment. This experiment is talking about nature. It is conducted in the everyday environment of the participants, but here the experimenter has no control over the independent variable as it occurs naturally in real life. Also, laboratories also create lab grown diamond in the laboratory. So amazing!
Hope you know more about the laboratory and maybe one day you will go to the laboratory and work.
