Problem: A question proposed for solution; a matter stated for examination or proof; hence, a matter difficult of solution or settlement; a doubtful case; a question involving doubt.
Research: Careful, a diligent search, a close searching, studious inquiry or examination
Hypothesis: A tentative theory about the natural world; a concept that is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena; "a scientific hypothesis that survives experimental testing becomes a scientific theory".
Experiment: A procedure done in a controlled environment for the purpose of gathering observations, data, or facts, demonstrating known facts or theories, or testing hypotheses or theories.
Data Collection: Systematic gathering of data for a particular purpose from various sources, including questionnaires, interviews, observation, existing records, and electronic devices. The process is usually preliminary to statistical analysis of the data.
Conclusion: The comment on what you found out at the end of the experiment.

We have a dictionary, if you look more carefully, I'm sure you will see it at the top of the page. The first 5 definition is taken from there. You can look the things up from the dictionary rather than waiting for an answer... :)
