So for a school assignment, i am required to measure the Specific Heat Capacity of copper and from this, i need to create a research question. I have been told that i need to include the dependent and independent variables in the research question.
so, would the specific heat capacity of an object be considered as a Dependent variable? If i said it is, the SHC is dependent on the object itself (i rearranged the heat formula). But if this is not a dependent variable, what would be? Independent variable or maybe control? Please help explain, thank you.
