another analyzing question

Postby jDawg » Sun Dec 18, 2005 8:06 am

Hey,
My science fair experiment was to test the effect of differebt amounts of gas/water and oil/water mixtures on bean plant growth. The independent variables are the amounts of each pollution given to each plant group. These are 0tsp (control), 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1tbsp, 1 1/2 tbsp and a plant group of six for each level. The dependent variables are the height of the plants and the overall health of each group (either healthy or unhealthy).

I HAVE FINISHED THE EXPERIMENT!!! And now I need to know if there is another way to further analyze my data as i have qualitative, nominal data and quantitative, ratio data. I have graphs already and summary data tables but i want to know if I can extend off of my already done analysis.

Thanks!!<(^.^<)

jDawg:

Could you post some of your data so we can determine the number of replications and/or experimental design? This will help in suggesting methods/techniques of analysis.

oh yea, well at the end of my experiment all of the gas treated plants died with an ending height of o cm for each level of experimentation (1/2 tsp, 1tsp, 1 tbsp, and 1 1/2 tbsp) and the health of all of the levels was unhealthy. For the oil treated plants I found that actually all but one lived with an ending height of 29.5 cm for 1/2 tsp treated plants, 14.8 cm for 1 tsp, 25.1 for 1 tbsp, and 19.7 for 1 1/2 tbsp. The health in each of those groups were healthy
