The independent variable is what you did differently in the experiment compared to the controlled experiment; it's also called manipulated variable. The dependent variable is what changed in the experiment as a result of the independent variable; it's also called the responding variable x hope this helps :)

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.

Independent and dependant are types of variables in an experiment. The independent variable is what is being manipulated within the experiment and the dependant variable is the result of that change.

A dependant variable in an experiment is the portion of the experiment, or "y" variable that is subjected to change as a result of the various forms of the independent variable, or "x" variable.

The dependant variable is affected by the independent variable

The independent variable in any experiment is the variable that does not change and control the other variables, a dependant variable can be influenced on by the independent variable.

independent variable: factors in a experiment which you have control of and can change it. dependant variable: factors in a experiment that you have no control of and which and can't change it when wanted : D good luck. God Bless Madison

for the experiment to be accurate, there is one independent variable (the thing you change), and one dependant variable (the thing changed by the independent variable and what you measure)

Hello, Well what you would be looking for is what an independent variable means. Assuming you understand what a variable is and a dependant variable is, here goes: An independant variable is the variable which you change in an experiment. Note you can only have 1 variable that can change in an experiment and more than one independent variable will result in an unfair experiment. An example is an experiment looking at the growth of trees in the Dark, in a dimly lit room and in the direct sun. The independant variable is the location of the experiment, because this is what is being changed. Simply: The Independent Variable is the variable that is independent and you change. The dependant variable is what changes when the independent variable changes. To conduct an experiment, you will have an independent variable and change that to see how the dependant variable changes with the independent one. Hope I Helped

A factor that can be changed in an experiment is called an independent variable.

An independent variable can be changed itself and does not vary if other items around it are changed. A dependant variable changes it value in response to changes in other items.

The control is the variable that stays the same.The independent variable is the thing(s) that is being changed in the experiment.(don't have too many independent variables o your experiment will not work correctly).The dependant variable is the variable that depends the on the independent variable for the experiment.

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,

a dependant variable is a variable which is dependant on the results

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

The independent variable sometimes changes the dependant variable, because it is dependant on the other variable. Sometimes the independent variable doesn't change the dependant variable, in which case there is no causation between the two variables.

Yes, independant variables are the variables that are changed in an experiment to observe the results, called the dependant variable.

The independent variable is the one that the person doing the experiment changes themself. The dependant variable is the one that is recorded as results. For example, if investigating the effect of water on the rate of photosynthesis, you would change the amount of water and record how the rate of photosynthesis changes. Therefore, the amount of water is the independent variable and the rate of photosynthesis is the dependant variable.

I believe there is a dependent variable and an independent variable and i am 50% sure Within the tripartite system we experiment in there are three types of variables independent, dependant and extraneous variables.

in a experiment, the factor that is deliberately manipulatedAn independent variable is the variable that changes and the dependant variables are the variables that don't change. So that would mean that the independent variable is typically the variable being manipulated or changed and the dependent variable is the observed result of the independent variable being manipulated.An independent variable is a variable in an experiment that is changed to test a hypothesis. The dependent variable relies on the change of the independent variable to change itself.

Scientifically, independent refers to the direct opposite of dependant. The dependant variable is varied deliberately and systematically by the experimenter, and the summary of the independent variables form the results of the experiment. Example: Experiment to determine tensile strength of lumber. Method: Add 10kg weights to sample lumber and observe results (dependant variable is number of 10 kg weights) Results: 1...2...3...4...5...6CRASH 'CRASH' = Independent variable, proving tensile strength > 60kg (dependant variable)

it will rely on the independent variable
