Ashley Hutson Biology 1103 Lab January 25, 2011 Clam Development Weds 10:10 A. For this graphing experiment I decided to use a line graph. I thought a line graph would be best because they are mainly used to show change. I felt that using a line graph would be the best way to show how the number of clams increase or decrease depending on the temperature of the water. B. This graph is basically showing how the number of clams changes depending on the water temperature. The number of clams gradually increase until it is at its optimal number of clams at 30 degrees celsius. Then as the temperature of the water starts to increase the number of clams decrease until there is 0 developing clams when the water reaches 50 degrees celsius. C. The dependent variable of this experiment is the number of developing clams.

Unformatted text preview: D. The independent variable of this experiment is the water temperature. E. The optimum temperature according to my graph for clam development is 30 degrees celsius. At this temperature the number of developing clams reached its highest peak of 140. F. The data points for this experiment is not linear because some sort of experimental error took place. It is likely that a error called systematic error occurred. Systematic error is an experimental error that can occur because of the experiments set up which causes results to vary. In this experiment the data points are not linear because the linear correlation coefficient for the data interpreted is 0.884....
