Definition of Empirical Approach

An empirical approach is a methodology by which the experiments are designed and it is one of the best methods of investigation. These research experiments help in deriving the laws for various phenomena related to the scientific fields i.e. biology, chemistry and physics. This sort of methodology depends entirely on the evidence that is obtained by the scientific method.


The quantitative and qualitative methods of observation, depending upon the type of sample, are being employed in empirical research. This also involves the scientific investigation through which the probability of the variables used in experimental research is determined. The hypotheses related to medicine, law and anthropology are being validated by this approach.
