Is scientific theory and scientific law connected?
A scientific theory and a scientific law are similar in that they both propose to describe and predict the behavior of some aspect of nature in terms of a few basic princples. The main difference is that a scientific theory does not yet have enough evidence to verify its validity. A scientific theory becomes a scientific law after enough evidence has been collected, through experimentation, to be reasonably sure that its description of how nature behaves will always be correct. It often takes as long as a hundred years of experiments before a theory is accepted as a law.
