Take the pre-test for this chapter online. com. Science is the study of nature that proceeds by posing questions about observations. Why are there seasons? What is the function of the nodules at the base of this plant? Why does this bread taste sour? What does plaque from between teeth look like when magnified? Why are so many crows dying this winter? What causes new diseases? Many early written records show that people have always asked questions like these. For example, the Greek physician Hippocrates (ca.

14 How Pasteur applied the scientific method in investigating the nature of fermentation. After observing that fermenting grape juice contained both yeasts and bacteria, Pasteur hypothesized that these organisms cause fermentation. Upon eliminating the possibility that fermentation could occur spontaneously or be caused by air (hypotheses 1 and 2), he concluded that fermentation requires the presence of living cells. The results of additional experiments (those testing hypotheses 3 and 4) indicated that bacteria ferment grape juice to produce acids and that yeasts ferment grape juice to produce alcohol.
