Chemistry is an experimental science. As in all experimental sciences, we ask questions and devise experiments to help us answer those questions. The research process involves identifying an interesting question or problem to investigate, devising experiments to help find a solution to the question or problem, revising our approach or even revising the question based on experimental results, and repeating the process. Experimental work can involve mixing chemicals in a hood, programming a computer, working with instrumentation, or a variety of other activities.
