Dear Student
Empirical probability is also known as experimental probability in this instead of all probable outcomes we consider the outcomes of the experiment performed. For example to find the probability of a head when a coin is tossed 50 times we look at the outcomes actually obatained when a coin is tossed 50 times rather then the classical approach of simly saying 1/2 is the probabilty of getting head.
Its used in statistical analysis.
