In an online essay on scientific experiments, Rev. Ronald J. Wasowski of the University of Portland describes the "first principles" as one of nine major aspects of scientific experimental design. He states the following "first principles": - The scientist must clearly understand the nature of the problem he or she is trying to understand - The scientist must also clearly understand all of the hypotheses, theories and laws of nature that can be reasonably expected to affect the outcome of the experiment. - The scientist must develop a working hypothesis. The full essay is available at http://lewis.up.edu/mcs/wasowski/sci110/Sc110_SH.html and has a lot of details that have not been quoted here. I hope this answers your question. If not, please request an answer clarification before you proceed to give the answer a rating. Search term used on Google: "first principles" "scientific experiments"
