Be sure that you understand the requirements for lab credit:
Make notes on each part of the lab report, and especially on anything that doesn't make sense to you. Bring any questions you have on lab expectations to class.
A good lab report data section includes all your raw data measurements, sample calculations, graphs if it is important to show a trend in the data, the results of your calculations, and a summary of the importance of the data to your goal.
Follow the appropriate lab format for presenting information about your hypothesis or goals, your procedure (especially identifying any changes you made to the suggested lab procedure above). Create sections for your raw data and calculated data:
|Trial #||Measurement||Deviation||Percentage error|
|1||5.1||0.04||0.04/5.06 = 0.0079 = 0.79%|
|1||5.2||0.14||0.14/5.06 = 0.027 = 2.7%|
|1||4.9||0.07||0.07/5.06 = 0.014 = 1.4%|
Include conclusions about the accuracy and errors of your measurements and a specific suggestion for increasing accuracy and reducing error.
