Life boats science

Capacity The greatest amount of fluid a container can hold
Line of best fit shows the trend of data in a graph; it tries to average the data in a graph
Density Measure of the amount of mass oer volume
Volume The amount of space an object takes up
Mass The amount of matter in an am=bject
Density expression D= _m_ v
dependent variable The information learned during an experiment. It can be measured and is shown on the y-axis
Two coordinate graph A graph showing the relationship between two sets of data consists of two axes, the x-axis and the y-axis
Independent variable the information known at the beginning of an experiment and might effect the outcome
What variables might effect the number of passengers (pennies) a paper cup boat can hold? Where the pennies are placed in the where the pennies are placed in the cup Water movement Size of the cup
Is there a relationship between the capacity of lifeboats and the number of passengers they hold? Yes, the greater the capacity, the greater number of passengers they can hold.
How are you able to predict the number of passengers the number of passengers a new boat would hold? Know the capacity and then go up on the graph until you hit the line of best fit. Then look to the Y-axis to see the # of passengers.
Scientific Inquiry (Scientific Method) : 1.Make on observation 2.Ask a question 3.Make a hypothesis 4.test hypothesis by experimenting 5.Analyze data & Make a conclusion 6.Publish results
