Scientific models are used to predict and elaborate the behaviour of the real objects in the field of physics, chemistry, ecology and earth science.
It is used to gain improved understanding of the processes and systems.
However, every model have some limitations because they are not the representative of every possible scenario. For instance, relationship between time and distance is the idea model, study of cell and its various parts uses physical model, predicting earthquake uses computer model.
Scientific models are used to explain phenomena that can not be experience directly and it is also used for prediction.
An example of idea model is the Eistein equation. An idea model shows how things interact together to produce a particular result.
An example of physical model is the solar system.
Computer model is used to predict long term events and an example of this is computer simulations.
Scientific models are used to explain and predict the behaviour of real objects or systems and are used in a variety of scientific disciplines, ranging from physics and chemistry to ecology and the Earth sciences.
