The dependent variable changes as a result of changes in the independent variable.

Put another way,

The Independent Variable is manipulated, and is known as the changed variable.

The Dependent Variable is responding, and is known as the result.

Example : In an experiment to test the effect of heating on evaporation, the various temperatures would be the independent variable, which will be changed by the experimenter. The amount of water that evaporates in a given time is the dependent variable, which is the data sought in the experiment.

independent variable is the one you control. the dependent variable depends on the indepdendent variable (the results). on the graph independent in on the bottom and dependent is on the side


An independent variable is the variable you can change in an experiment. On a graph, it's on the X-axis. A dependent variable is the result of changing the independent variable. It is literally dependent on it. The dependent variable goes on the Y-axis.


An independent variable is when you do not control what happens In an experiment,however; a dependent variable is when you actually control the experiment,


The independent variable is the variable that is manipulated. This affects the dependent variable and the results of the experiment.


Dependent variable is your data, independent variable is what you are testing. Ex. Sunlight would be the independent variable and a plants growth would be the dependent variable.


In an experiment the independent is the stimulus, the thing controlled or applied by the experimenter. The dependent variable is the response, the reaction to the independent variable.


A dependent variable can vary as the experiment goes on. The independent will not change during the experiment.


A dependent variable is a variable whose value depends on the value of some other variable - which may be independent or may also be dependent.


a dependent variable and an independent variable a dependent variable and an independent variable they are the dependent and independent variable


An independent variable can be any of a given set of values while a dependent variable is represented as a function of another variable.


The independent variable is the variable being manipulated in the experiment in order to show the effect on the dependent variable. It is also called the experimental variable.The dependent variable is the variable being observed in the experiment. Changes in the dependent variable as a result of changes in the independent variable are observed, which is the purpose of the experiment. Dependent variable is also called the response variable.


The independent variable is the variable that is altered by the scientist, and the dependent variable's value is dependent on the value of the independent variable.


The dependent variable is dependent on the independent variable, so when the independent variable changes, so does the dependent variable.


and independent variable is bigger than a dependent variable


The independent variable is changed by the scientist which then changes the dependent variable. The dependent variable relies on the independent variable.


The Independent variable is the one you control. The dependent variable is controlled by the Independent Variable.


The independent variable of an experiment is the variable that you change, and the dependent variable is the result of the independent variable.


Math: Independent variable is what you change. Dependent variable is what you measure.


the independent variable that changes the dependent variable. the dependent variable is what you are changing


Independent variable is a kind of variable in an experiment that can't be controlled or changed. While dependent variable is a result or effect of the independent variable.


The difference is that the independent variable is the one being changed (manipulated), dependent is not.


The independent variable (such as time) is places on the x-axis of a graph. Always place the things that will never change on the x-axis. The dependent variable is then placed on the y-axis. The difference between the independent and dependent variable is that the independent variable in an experient does not change it is what stays constent, it is what is used to measure the dependent variable. On the other hand the dependent variable is what the experiment is testing for and what depends on the independent variable.


is dependent on the independent variable


The Independent Variable, in an experiment, is the variable that is being manipulated and the Dependent Variable is what will be affected.


yes, because dependent variable is made by independent variable
