What the Expert Says:

This isn't an experiment because you do not have a control comparing different "treatments." Properly this is called an "investigation." Nevertheless, you can identify variables involved: the coin (age, condition), the liquid (source), the dropper (opening size, amount of pressure on bulb), the surface the coin is on (level, material), the setting (light, temperature, humidity). Hope this helps.
