Repeatability its Importance in Science

The replication of a scientist’s experiments and results by other scientists is called Repeatability. Since the physical laws are the same every place any experiment conducted by one scientist should work for any other scientist so to provide a double check the results.

Experiments with well controlled variables are the best prospects for repeatability to work because replication can be as completely as possible. It does not work well in situations where there are difficulties in controlling variables. In such cases results are not easily replicated. The degree of repeatability varies from field to field.
