(1)I need to create two experiments on the effects of acid rain using the scientific method. With the hypothesis, experiment and conclusion as the format of the experiment.

(2)Using the following statement and the scientific method, I have to design a scenario in the format of question- experiment- results-conclusion to test assumptions of death by loneliness.
"I have a lit candle that I put under sealed glass in a dark room by itself. I come back in a few minutes and the flame has died. I immediately assume that the flame died because it was all alone (it was alive and died of loneliness).

(1)I need to create two experiments on the effects of acid rain using the scientific method. With the hypothesis, experiment and conclusion as the format of the experiment. It has to be half a page in length.

One experiment can be on the effect of acid rains on the plant growth. That can be measured by looking at the sizes of the plants that grow on a patch of soil where acid rains fell. Then, compare that with the size of plants which grew on soil free from acid rains. This comparison will distinguish between the effects of acid rain on plant growth.

Another can be on the quality of soil once acid rain has fell on the ground over time.

The hypothesis can be: Acid rain affects the roots of plants and destroys nutrients from the ground, ...

Start by observing the living species around you and choose factors for an experiment.

Start by observing the living species around you. Choose two non-human species that interact with each other,such as bees and flowers,or predetor and prey species or two species that compete.Or, you can consider the effect of an enviromental factor on living non-human organisims,such as the effects of light or sound on plants or animals,or how food preference,or nutrient quanity/quality effect plants and animals.just a few examples.Your observations may lead you to many other types of questions about living organisims,their interactions and requirements for life. Start with an introduction and move through the steps of the scientific method, including observations/introduction, question, hypothesis, prediction, method/experiment, data collection, results (made up), and conclusion/discussion.
