    Matt wants to determine if the temperature of water effects how long it will take sugar to dissolve. Matt thinks that warmer water will cause the sugar to dissolve faster. Scott uses 25ml of water at each temperature and uses a 1 ounce sugar cube for each trial. Scott decides to use 5 different temperatures, 2 below room temperature, room temperature, and 2 above room temperature. He records the time from when he places the cube in the water to when he can no longer see any sugar crystals.  What is his IV?
