In most biology experiments, the relationship between the independent and the dependent variable can best be described as cause and effect,” true or false? Explain.

  • Biology -

    That is what we try to find out in an experiment. Does changing the independent variable cause changes in the dependent variable? If this includes potential cause and potential effect, I would say true. (In some experiments, the independent variable does not effect the dependent variable.)

    I hope this helps.
