18 In the following: Identify at least two constants Variables for 40 pointsIn the following: Identify at least two constantsTen seeds were planted in each of 5 pots found around the house that contained 500 g of “Pete’s Potting Soil.” The pots were given the following amounts of distilled water each day for 40 days: Pot1, 50ml; Pot2, 100ml; Pot 3, 150 ml; Pot 4, 200 ml; Pot 5, 250 ml. Because pot 3 received the recommended amount of water it was used as a control. The height of each plant was measured at the end of the experiment.A

20 What is the control in this scenario? Variable for 50 pointsWhat is the control in this scenario?A shopping mall wanted to determine whether the more expensive “Tough Stuff” floor wax was better than the cheaper “Steel Seal” floor wax at protecting its floor tiles against scratches. One liter of each grade of floor wax was applied to each of 5 test sections of the main hall of the mall. The test sections were all the same size and were covered with the same kinds of tiles. Five other test sections received no wax. After 3 weeks, the number of scratches in each test section was counted.A
21 Answers to Variables 50 points The test sections with no wax.The control is always the level of independent variable with the least manipulation or the “normal”.Board

26 Hypothesis for 30 pointsWhat is wrong with this hypothesis?CHALLENGE !!If the temperature of water is changing, then the time to dissolve a tablet will change because hot water melts things.A
27 Answer to Hypothesis for 30 points You just earned 30 pts if you were the challenger and the challenged team has the wrong answer.-- If you were challenged and have this right you earn 60 pts!Didn’t describe how the independent variable or the dependent variable is changing.
28 Write a hypothesis for the following scenario. Hypothesis for 40 ptsWrite a hypothesis for the following scenario.Susan tested how high 5 different brands of new tennis balls would bounce when dropped from a height of 2 meters. She dropped the balls so that they hit the same floor tile each timeA
29 Answer to Hypothesis for 40 points EX.If different brands of tennis balls are dropped from a height of 2 meters, then Wilson tennis balls will bounce higher than any other brand because they use a special kind of rubber.Board
30 Hypothesis for 50 pointsTom was experimenting with different amounts of Mentos in diet coke. He wanted to see how many Mentos would give the highest explosion.Write a hypothesis for this experimentA
31 Answer to Hypothesis for 50 points If I increase the amount of Mentos, the height of the explosion from diet coke will increase because there will be more surface area in contact with the diet coke.
