    do or make an experiment

    Hi!
    Should I say to make or to do an experiment?

    By the way I can't understand who replied to my topic "introducing oneself".
    Who was that?

    Thanks Ripley

    I'd use 'do' , 'conduct' or 'carry out'.

    Possible answer:
    do/perform/conduct/ carry out

    I won't use "make".
    "make" tends to use in "make a car, make the law" (something more to do with creation, construction, establishment)
