How can you compare and analyze theoretical and experimental probabilities?

There are a number of statistical tests that are designed for this purpose. The Chi-squared and Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests are two of the better known ways.

Compare experimental and theoretical probability?

Experimental probability is obtained by repeatedly carrying out an experiment. It is the ratio of the number of favourable outcomes and the total number of experiments. Theoretical probability is calculated from a model of the experiment using the laws of physics or nature (or whatever).

Percent error of O in MgO?

To calculate the percent error of oxygen in magnesium oxide (MgO), you would compare the experimental value of oxygen in MgO to the theoretical value. The experimental value can be determined by chemical analysis, while the theoretical value can be calculated using the molecular formula of MgO. The percent error is calculated using the formula: (|Theoretical value - Experimental value| / Theoretical value) x 100%.

How do you test theoretical probability?

The theoretical probability provides a model for predicting the outcome of trials. You then carry out a number of trials. Compare the outcome of your trials with the results predicted by the theoretical model. The comparison will usually involve "hypothesis testing", a branch of statistics. This is a method to test how likely the actual outcomes are if the theoretical probabilities were true. The exact nature of the test will depend on the theoretical basis and so the answer cannot be simplified.

What is the difference of control group and the experimental group?

Experimental group has been exposed to the independent variable whereas the control group has not, and is often used to compare the experimental group's results against.

Do Odds compare two quantities?

Yes, two probabilities.

How do you decide which event is most likely?

You compare their probabilities. The one with the greatest probability is the most likely.
