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

Independent variables are variables that can be changed in an experiment, while dependent variables are variables that change as a result of an experiment. In other words, independent variables are what you change, and dependent variables are the results of the experiment.

One is controlled by the scientist (dependent) other isn't (independent)

The relationship between independent and dependent variables is constant. The independent variables are not affected and do not change while dependent variables rely on something or a particular change.

Every time the independent variables change, the dependent variables change.Dependent variables cannot change if the independent variables didn't change.

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

Independent variables are those that you change in an experiment. Dependent variables are the ones that you measure in an experiment. Dependent variables are influenced by the independent variables that you change, so they are dependent upon the independent variable. Generally, experiments should have only one independent variable.

dependent: factors of a experiment that scientist observe, and can be changed by the outcome of the independent variable independent: a factor of a experiment that changes because you change it on purpose

Depends on the relationship between the independent and dependent variables.

They are respectively the ones you control (independent) and the ones you mesure (dependent).

It depends on the relationship, if any, between the independent and dependent variables.

Both variables and both part of an experiment.

An independent variable is the variable that changes in a experiment. And a dependent variable is the variable that changes as a result of a of the independent variable.

The independent variable determines the value of other variables and is change by the person doing the experiment. The dependent variable is what is affected by the independent variable; it "depends" on the independent variable.

line that measures the slope between dependent and independent variables

In an experiment, the independent and dependent variables are very closely related. The independent variable is the element that is manipulated, and the dependent variable changes depending on what is done to the independent variable.

What is the difference between dependant and independent events in terms of probability

A function is a relationship between quantities (variables) that occurs when the value of one of the quantities can be given uniquely by specified values of the other quantities. The variables involved can be either independent or dependent. The values of certain variables are fixed while others are allowed to change. The fixed variables are called the independent variables, and the dependent variables are those that change in response to the given value of the independent variable. A function therefore relates dependent variables to independent variables, the only restriction being that each value of the dependent variable is given uniquely by one, and only one, value for each of the independent variables.

That there is a linear relationship between the dependent and independent variables

The independent variable is the variable that you are curious about, and that you are going to change is some systematic way in an experiment to see what affect your changes make. What you check, to see if there are differences, is the dependent variable. According to your hypothesis, the values of the dependent variable will 'depend' on how you manipulate the independent variable.

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
