Qualitative refers to a description or analysis of something based on its qualities or attributes, rather than on measurable or quantitative data.

  • Qualitative analysis in physics focuses on the inherent properties or characteristics of the thing being studied, rather than on numerical values or precise measurements.
  • Qualitative analysis involves making observations, interpreting patterns and relationships, and drawing conclusions based on these observations, rather than relying solely on numerical data or statistical analysis.
  • Qualitative analysis might involve making observations and drawing inferences about the behaviour of a system or object based on its properties, such as its shape, colour, texture, or motion.
  • Qualitative analysis can be used in many different fields, including social sciences, natural sciences, and humanities, to gain a deeper understanding of complex phenomena and systems.
