Forensic science is the study of objects that relate to a crime. These objects are called evidence. Forensic scientists study evidence so that it can be used as proof in a court of law. When analyzing evidence, forensic scientists observe, classify, compare use numbers, measure, predict, interpret data, and draw inferences, or reasonable conclusions based on evidence.
