Help with null hypothesis and statistical test!

Recommended Posts

Hey!

I am doing a biology lab on the difference between the sunny-sided leaves and shaded sided leaves of a tree.

And I am a bit confused when it comes to this whole null hypothesis and the statistical tests, are they necessary for this

kind of lab? and if so, how should I state the null hypothesis?

As you have said "difference" between the sunny-sided leaves and the shady-sided leaves, you will definitely need a null hypothesis and some calculations. You can state your null hypothesis like, there is no significant difference between data sets.

Btw, what kind of a difference are you looking for between them? (just curious)

Things we can see and measure, like length and width, colour and such :) Plant science is not really my favorite topic haha :P

Thanks for the help though! Do I need any "because" in the null hypothesis?

I think you don't need any "because" in the null hypothesis. The "because" thing applies to other labs and as this one is concerned with statistics it doesn't.
