An example of how I used scientific method in a real-life situation is that I tested to see if using tanning beds in teens, two to three times a week will cause skin cancer. In this case the hypothesis, I believe that using tanning beds in your teens will increase the risk of skin cancer. In order to test my hypothesis I had to have controlled testing methods. For instance; I had a set amount of people to test the tan on that would show some consistence if any in the results. I ask three teenage girls and three teenage guys to use the tanning bed two times a week for their entire four years in high school. This study took years to finish conducting because the end results of cancer could possibly show up till later in their lives. However, I ask these six people to use the same tanning bed, the 242, for twenty minutes every two times a week they go tanning. They all had to go to the same tanning salon. These were controlled variables that would help benefit in the end results. LetвЂ™s say after those four years and around the age that these then young adults grew into mature twenty five year olds would I see what type of results I got from my experiment. Now that I tested my hypothesis, I now check and determine my results. LetвЂ™s say after those nine years two out of the three girls were diagnosed with melanoma and none of the boys
Bacon considered that it is of greatest importance to science not to keep doing intellectual discussions or seeking merely contemplative aims, but that it should work for the bettering of mankind's life by bringing forth new inventions, having even stated that "inventions are also, as it were, new creations and imitations of divine works" .  He cites examples from the ancient world, saying that in Ancient Egypt the inventors were reputed among the gods, and in a higher position than the heroes of the political sphere, such as legislators, liberators and the like. He explores the far-reaching and world-changing character of inventions, such as in the stretch:
The function of an argumentative essay is to show that your assertion (opinion, theory, hypothesis) about some phenomenon or phenomena is correct or more truthful than others'. The art of argumentation is not an easy skill to acquire. Many people might think that if one simply has an opinion, one can argue it successfully, and these folks are always surprised when others don't agree with them because their logic seems so correct. Argumentative writing is the act of forming reasons, making inductions, drawing conclusions, and applying them to the case in discussion; the operation of inferring propositions, not known or admitted as true, from facts or principles known, admitted, or proved to be true. It clearly explains the process of your reasoning from the known or assumed to the unknown. Without doing this you do not have an argument, you have only an assertion, an essay that is just your unsubstantiated opinion.
