Many researchers want to show that the two groups are truly distinct, but they will fail to find significant differences if the sample size is not big enough. Also, they can waste time and money by continuing an investigation past the time it needs to be continued because they do not know when the testing has been completed since they haven't calculated the sample size before the investigation begins. If the sample size is already large enough to prove that the experimental group is superior, maintaining treatment for the control group could be an ethical problem because the treatment they are receiving is obviously inferior. Thus, it is clear that calculation of sample size is essential ethically and also effectively to get the greatest satisfaction at the lowest cost.
