Wednesday: Science Skills - Variables
When planning a Science experiment, you have to control the variables.
There are three types:
Independent variable: the one thing that change.
Dependent variables: what will you measure?
Controlled variables: what will stay the same every time?
Activity: I want to measure how our shadows change throughout the day.
Independent variable (what will you change?):
Dependent variable (what will you measure/ observe?):
Controlled variable (what must stay the same?):
Volts are a measure of how much electric force is stored.
Voltage is an electric force that causes electrons to move around a circuit.
Just like water needs pressure to force it through a hose, electrical current needs some force to make it flow.
Do you think the amount of volts affect the circuit in any way? Bulbs, buzzers, motors?
How could we test whether the amount of volts affects the brightness of a lamp or volume of a buzzer?
If you were in school, we would test this out, but, unfortunately, you probably don't have the correct equipment at home.
