Suppose you set a glass of water in direct sunlight for 2 h and measure its temperature every 10 min. What type of graph would you use to display your data? What would the dependent variable be? What would the independent variable be?

dependent variable is what you don't know b4 the experiment and independent is what you know b4 the experiment.
so
dependent variable is the time....
and
independent variable is the measure of its temperature for ever 2 mins....
and I would prolly use a line graph to show the data.....! just cuz its clear to see the time vs temperature graph.....! 
What is the control of this experiment?
