What test can you perform to increase the chance in your own mind that you are right about a particular idea?
Solution 15RQ We can do a thought experiment. The thought experiments are performed in mind, and some time may not be possible to perform in the laboratory. Most often, we take some extreme condition and the think about the outcome of the experiment in that condition. If the outcome matches with our idea, we can be more confident about the correctness of our idea. If the outcome contradicts with the idea, there might be some problem with the idea and have to be reconsidered. Thought experiments are very important in development in science. Lots of paradoxes were developed on the basis of a thought experiment and to solve those paradoxes, lots of new theories have been developed.
