Chat with a friend about an established scientific theory, and she might reply, “Well, that’s just a theory.”

But a conversation about an established scientific law rarely ends with “Well, that’s just a law.” Why is that?

What is the difference between a theory and a law… and is one “better”?

Matt Anticole shows why science needs both laws and theories to understand the whole picture.
