## What are some examples of independent and dependent variable?

The type of soda – diet or regular – is the independent variable. The level of blood sugar that you measure is the dependent variable – it changes depending on the type of soda.

**How do you identify the independent and dependent variable in a given situation?**

An easy way to think of independent and dependent variables is, when you’re conducting an experiment, the independent variable is what you change, and the dependent variable is what changes because of that. You can also think of the independent variable as the cause and the dependent variable as the effect.

**What is an example of a independent variable in science?**

In a study to determine whether how long a student sleeps affects test scores, the independent variable is the length of time spent sleeping while the dependent variable is the test score. You want to know which brand of fertilizer is best for your plants. The brand of fertilizer is the independent variable.

### Is weather a dependent variable?

It’s hotter in the middle of the day than at either morning or night. So, the temperature depends on the time. So, the temperature is dependent, and the time is independent. If you’re looking at a graph, the independent variable is generally on the horizontal axis.

**How do you know if it is dependent variable?**

The dependent variable is the variable that is being measured or tested in an experiment. 1 For example, in a study looking at how tutoring impacts test scores, the dependent variable would be the participants’ test scores, since that is what is being measured.

**Is coffee a dependent variable?**

In this study, as in any experiment, you have the variable that you think is causing changes in the other variable. This “potentially causal variable” is called, traditionally, the “independent variable.” With the current example, that would be the coffee.

#### Is sunlight independent or dependent?

In this case, the number of hours of sunlight is the independent variable and the height of the plant is the dependent variable, because the change in the height depends on the hours of sunlight, not the other way around.

**Is eye color a dependent variable?**

Design an investigaton using eye color as a dependent variable. This time eye color is the dependent variable, so you have to research things that might affect eye color. Since eye color is an inherited trait, I cannot think of any investigation that can be done.

**Is weight dependent or independent?**

Calorie intake is your independent variable and weight is your dependent variable. You can choose the calories given to participants, and you see how that independent variable affects the weights. You may decide to include a control variable of age in your study to see if it affects the outcome.

## What are examples of independent events?

Independent events are those events whose occurrence is not dependent on any other event. For example, if we flip a coin in the air and get the outcome as Head, then again if we flip the coin but this time we get the outcome as Tail. In both cases, the occurrence of both events is independent of each other.

**Is food independent or dependent?**

The amount of food depends on the day, so it is the dependent variable.

**Is water a dependent variable?**

In this case, the amount of water is the independent variable because that is what you’re changing in the experiment: one seed gets a lot of water and the other seed only gets a little water.

### Do more guys or girls have blue eyes?

With the exception of an increased risk of macular degeneration (blue eyes are at greater risk) , eye color is biologically indicative of almost nothing. Boys are 3 percent to 5 percent likelier to have blue eyes than girls, but beyond that it’s a non-issue — physiologically speaking.

**How to determine which variables are dependent or independent?**

Create a graph with x and y-axes. Draw a vertical line,which is the y-axis.

**What is the difference between an independent variable and a dependent variable?**

An Independent variable is a variable whose value never depends on another variable whereas a dependent variable is a variable whose value depends on another variable.

#### What are some examples of dependent and independent variables?

In a study to determine whether how long a student sleeps affects test scores,the independent variable is the length of time spent sleeping while the dependent variable is the

**What are some facts about independent and dependent variable?**

VARIABLES. A variable is a quantity that can change or that may take on different values.
