For something to become a theory it must be widely recognized as a legitimate way to answer the certain question.

The trouble with the results of one experiment is that it may be true or perhaps the results depend on a hidden variable or more. If the results are replicated under slightly different conditions, we become more confident in the generalizing of the results. (Concept: It happened in this experiment vs. it will happen in all similar experiments.)

What is the independent variable in a line graph?

Independent variable is the one to be investigated; the one that will be changed to get results. If you are still finding it too hard just keep this in your mind-- Independent variables answer the question "What do I change?" in an experiment. Dependent variables answer the question "What do I observe?"!

Is it hard to break the top of your hand?

Not really. You just haven't tried hard enough. Find a brick wall, lossen the bottom of your arm as if you no longer had the ability to flex it, and swing it as hard as you can at te wall as if it is an inanimate object, making sure the top of your hand (unflexed)connects first. I suggest using the scientific method and making an experiment out of it. First make a hypothesis. Then conduct the experiment above, and right down the results for you to consider later on, as you will have a bit of time to consider many things. If you want to write down the results, make sure you use your non writing hand, or failing that, first install some voice recognition software on your PC. If you have further questions arising from your experiment, feel free to ask it here, I will be eagerly awaiting further information / questions about this.
