The independent variable for this experiment is "the amount of water given to a plant".
Consider the provided information.
A student conducts an experiment to determine how the amount of water given to a plant affects its growth. We need to find the independent variable for this experiment.
The independent variable is the variable that the experimenter changes or controls to test the dependent variable impacts.
A dependent variable is the variable that depends on the independent variable and that the experimenter is testing and measuring.
Here the experimenter can changes or controls the amount of water but he can not change the growth of plant.
Thus, the independent variable for this experiment is "the amount of water given to a plant".
a. the amount of water
Independent variable can be defined as a variable which can be changed or manipulated in an experimental set up to record and observe it's effect on the dependent variable. A dependent variable is a variable which is dependent on the independent variable. The outcome of the dependent variable is the result of the experiment. A controlled variable is a variable which does not change in a reaction, and kept as a constant.
1. Here, in the given situation, the amount of water is an independent variable, as it can be manipulated or change in an experiment and it's impact on the growth of plant, which is a dependent variable needs to be observed.
2.Here, in the given, situation, the type of plant is a constant or control variable, as it is irrespective of the changes that occur in the dependent variable with respect to the independent variable.
a. the amount of water is the answer because the idependet variable is the variable your changing and in this expermient there are changing the amount of water in the plants
amount of water
An independent variable can be a variable useful in an experiment which can be manipulated by the experimenter or researcher so as to observe the result of such change on the dependent variable.
In the given experiment, the amount of water is the independent variable. The affect of the amount of water can be observed on the growth of plants which is the dependent variable.
b. the height of the plant.
In an experimental set up an independent variable is the one which can be manipulated or change to observe the effects of such changes or manipulation on dependent variable. For example, plant growth is a dependent variable because it is dependent on independent variables such as amount of sunlight available, amount of fertilizers and water provided.
In this experiment, it is to be determined that how the amount of water given to a plant affects its growth. Here, water is an independent variable which can be change in the experiment and the affect of change can be observed on plant growth which is a dependent variable. A height represents the growth of the plant therefore, height of the plant is the dependent variable.
A) the amount of water cos without testing the amount of water the plant receives, there's really no point for the experiment lol
The answer would be A. The amount of water.
We have an independent variable and a dependent one. The dependent variable here is the amount of growth of the plant(plant height) which depends on the amount of water it is given.
Hope this helps:)
The dependent variable would be anything that is not consistent. So outside factors such as how much sun and the environment that the plant is contained in.
