O Prepare an observation sheetO Take note of everything you observe within the observation period.
O To verify physical laws, principles and theory, measure or determine physical properties, compare experimental with theoretical results.
• Need to consider the questions: Who were the subjects or respondent? How were the subjects/respondents selected? What were the instrument used?
