2 Defining variables Variables Independent Variable Dependent variable What are the variables for the following hypotheses…Independent VariableWhat you changeDependent variableThe result you measureControl VariableEverything that you keep the sameONLY ONEDependent VariableThe strength of concrete depends on the amount of sand, cement and aggregate present.Smarties melt at different speeds in the sun depending on their colourThe speed that oil and water separate depends on the amount of emulsifier presentThe speed that marble chips react with Hydrochloric acid depends on the size of the marble chips
3 What you are going to do today You are going to research your hypothesis and complete your ISA “candidate research sheets” with a method so that someone else could fully investigate your hypothesis.In your ISA, you will be using your research sheet to carry out this practical.You can use ANY equipment or chemicals that you need. Marks are awarded for safety and fair testing.
4 Viscosity of Oil Hypothesis The viscosity of oil depends on the temperature of the oil.Viscosity = the thickness of the liquid.ContextOil in engines needs to be viscous enough to move around the engine at different and high temperatures.
