Are they derived from accepted laws and then tested, or are experiments carried out first and then a function is searched for that matches the results (or possibly both, or neither)? For example, how would an equation that gives the probability of electron locations be thought of? My "gut feeling" is that the former would be done, as the equations I've seen seem too precise to be otherwise, but as I do not have much experience in this field, I thought it would be better to ask.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
