400

Give an example of an experiment and give the independent and dependent variables for that experiment.
What is answers will vary.

500

Name the five steps of the scientific method in order.
What is Ask a question, Form a hypothesis, Test the hypothesis, Record and analyze data, and Draw a conclusion.

500

What method would you use to find the volume of an irregular object. What equipment would you use?
What is The displacement technique and a graduated cylinder.

500

Density is a physical property. The density of an object will tell us if it will float or sink. Explain this.
What is Water has a density of 1g/ml therefore substances and objects with densities less than 1g/ml will float in water, and those with densities greater than 1g/ml will sink in water.

500

An inference is a statement that tries to explain an observation. Give an observation and an inference to go along with it.
What is answers may vary. example. The girl was sweaty, she must have just gotten out of gym class.

500

Explain why when you put an object in water, the water moves up? How can we use this information to figure out volume?
What is no two objects can be in the same place at the same time. Therefore, when an object is placed in water the amount of water equal to the volume of the object will move up. How ever much water was moved (or displaced) is the volume of the object.
