  6. either
    call roll distance d
    call time t
    distance x (dependent) is a function of time t (independent)
    x = f (t)

    HOWEVER
    you could say the inverse , time is a function of distance
    t = g(x) but it is less likely that you would do it that way (like determining how long the experiment has been going by how far the ball rolled)
