### Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Alright, thanks! Also, does anyone know whether we should know about El nino/La nina for division C Dynamic Planet? It doesn't seem to be in the list of topics, but I feel like it is an important part of oceanography.

### Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

What formulas should we know for buoyancy? What types of problems could they possibly ask? I am having trouble finding example problems on the practice tests...

### Re: Simple Machines B/Compound Machines C

Thanks! One more question, for the lever, it says it must fit in a box 100x100x50 at impound, but does it have to actually be in a box? Or does it just have to theoretically fit? Thanks again for everyone's help!!! No. Many science olympiad events give max sizes for devices based upon a theoretical...

### Re: Simple Machines B/Compound Machines C

Can someone explain to me the ideal mechanical advantage of pulleys? Some sources say that it is the number of pulleys, others say the number of strings, and others say its one for a stationary and 2 for a moving. I feel like this shouldn't be this complicated so if someone could explain it to me I ...

### Re: Experimental Design B/C

I know we are allowed to bring a ruler, but are we allowed to use this ruler in our experiment, for say, a ramp? Or a support? Or is the ruler solely for measurements?

### Re: Experimental Design B/C

What does operationally defined mean for IV and DV? Operationally defined means using units, in essence. For example (Bold is the operationally defined part): IV: Ball dropped (Tennis, ping pong, basket ball) DV: Height bounced (Cm) What are three levels of IV? The three different independent varia...

### Re: Experimental Design B/C

I was looking through the rubric and I had some questions:

What does operationally defined mean for IV and DV?
What are three levels of IV?
What are examples of SOC?

Thanks for any help!!

For this event we are allowed laptops, but is there a rule as to what we can do on the laptop? I assume internet is not allowed, but are we allowed to have browser windows opened with pre-loaded pages, or is this against the rules?
