## What is a Dependant variable in an experiment?

The **dependent variable** is the **variable** that is being measured or tested in an **experiment**. When researchers make changes to the independent **variable**, they then measure any resulting changes to the **dependent variable**.

## Which is the Dependant variable?

**A dependent variable** is what you measure in the experiment and what is affected during the experiment. The **dependent variable** responds to the **independent variable**. It is called **dependent** because it “depends” on the **independent variable**.

## What is a dependent variable easy definition?

The **dependent variable** is the **variable** being tested and measured in an experiment, and is ‘**dependent**‘ on the **independent variable**. An example of a **dependent variable** is depression symptoms, which depends on the **independent variable** (type of therapy).

## What is meant by dependent and independent variables?

The **variables** in a study of a cause-and-effect relationship are called the **independent** and **dependent variables**. The **independent variable** is the cause. Its value is **independent** of other **variables** in your study. The **dependent variable** is the effect. Its value depends on changes in the **independent variable**.

## What are 3 types of variables?

There are **three** main **variables**: independent **variable**, dependent **variable** and controlled **variables**.

## Can time be a dependent variable?

**Time** is a common independent **variable**, as it will not be affeced by any **dependent** environemental inputs. **Time can** be treated as a controllable constant against which changes in a system **can** be measured.

## How do you know what the dependent variable is?

The **dependent variable** is the one that depends on the value of some other number. If, say, y = x+3, then the value y can have depends on what the value of x is. Another way to put it is the **dependent variable** is the output value and the independent **variable** is the input value.

## How do you choose independent variables?

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.

## How do you remember independent and dependent variables?

Many people have trouble remembering which is the **independent variable** and which is the **dependent variable**. An easy way to **remember** is to insert the names of the two **variables** you are using in this sentence in they way that makes the most sense.

## What is the dependent variable in a graph?

The independent **variable** belongs on the x-axis (horizontal line) of the **graph** and the **dependent variable** belongs on the y-axis (vertical line). The x and y axes cross at a point referred to as the origin, where the coordinates are (0,0).

## What is independent variable in biology?

**Independent variable** – the **variable** that is altered during a scientific experiment. Dependent **variable** – the **variable** being tested or measured during a scientific experiment. Controlled **variable** – a **variable** that is kept the same during a scientific experiment.

## What is the meaning of dependent?

a person who depends on or needs someone or something for aid, support, favor, etc. a child, spouse, parent, or certain other relative to whom one contributes all or a major amount of necessary financial support: She listed two **dependents** on her income-tax form.
