Jude is doing an experiment to observe how changing the number of coins in a battery tower affects the total voltage. Jude has 10 identical coins. He places one coin on the table, then he places a one inch square of paper-towel that has been soaked in a vinegar mix on top. Jude then places a second coin on top, making a sandwich of coin, paper-towel, coin. Using a voltage meter, he records the voltage. Jude continues to place coin, paper-towel, coin sandwiches on the batter tower, measuring the voltage after each addition.

1. The vinegar mix, the size of the paper-towels and the voltage meter are all examples of:

2. The number of coins in the experiment is the:
