What is name of the principle that is the basis for Forensic Science and explains why we can find evidence

Locard's exchange principle? (Had no idea so I searched it up and this seemed like the best result)

I'm not sure 13superfan13 is gonna respond to this, but yes, that is correct. Locard's exchange principle states that for every contact, there should be a trace from it.

I've got a good question but if you wanna ask one, that's fine.
