Help identify independent variable, DV and Constant
Posted: Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:12 pm
I am working on the "Shimmy Shimmy Soda Pop" experiment and need to label my variables. I think the Sugar is the Independent Variable, the Citric Acid is the Constant and the Baking Soda is the DV. Can you confirm this?

Do you need more information to help me answer this question? I think the DV is the baking soda because it depends on the Constant of the Citric acid (always added 1/4 tsp.) to make the solution. Then, I think the IV is the Sugar because it is independent of the baking soda and citric acid part of the experiment. Please let me know if that makes sense.
