Multiple cuts through the same sample can reveal rather wide ranges in rating numbers, which may further be compounded by differences in individual reader interpretations.
By heating the sample to a higher temperature, its energy and molecular motion increase, so through thermal expansion and a decrease in the viscous response, the material is allowed to freely expand and then recover to its final equilibrium position.
Perhaps, when we have more details on Monsanto's methodology and sample handling procedures, we can further explore potential reasons for the discrepancy between our results.
While quantitative researchers use complex mathematical formulae to make sample size considerations, and they promote the use of random sampling (even though the overwhelming majority of studies utilize non-random samples), sample size considerations in qualitative studies are neither mathematical nor systematic.
