1. While working on a class
chemistry experiment, Rachel
dropped a glass test tube filled with
an unknown liquid. What should
Rachel do first?
Inform the teacher
2. The white ring on a glass graduated
cylinder is to
prevent it from
breaking when it falls
3. In the lab, what will protect you
from acid that spills out of a beaker?

13. A scientific experiment that involves
changing one factor and observing its effects on
one thing while keeping all other things
constant.
Controlled experiment
14. The variable that is changed (manipulated)
in an experiment
Independent variable
15. The variable changes (responds) as a result
of a change in the independent variable
Dependent variable
17. An explanation that can be tested with a
scientific investigation.
hypothesis
16. A series of steps that scientists use when
performing an experiment.
Scientific method
18. If the amount of water increases, then the
height of the plant will increase. This is an
example of
A hypothesis

soil pollutant on the growth of a sunflower
plant. According to this information, what is the
independent (manipulated) variable?
Soil pollutant
