Aim: How can we accurately report the results of an experiment?

Do Now: Choose One

1) List the three major kinematic equations

2) Define displacement, velocity and acceleration using complete sentences

- In college, labs must be presented in a well formatted report.
- This is a college level course, so I will expect a college level lab report.
- A lab report consists of several separate sections.

Heading - All lab reports should include a lab title.

Objective – The objective of lab should be stated in your own words. Do not copy from the lab worksheet.

The Method/Setup section of your lab should be clear and detailed. Someone should be able to repeat the experiment by reading only your report.

Be sure to include:

- A brief description of what was done to accomplish the objective.
- All equipment used
- A sketch of the experimental set-up

Include:

- Raw data sheets
- Ruler drawn or computer generated charts
- Include all units

- Include all graphs when appropriate.
- Ruler drawn or computer generated.
- Correctly labeled axes, completed title, best fit line

How did you get from the data to the results?

Calculations:

- Include all equations used
- A sample of each type of calculation with units
- Usually easier to write by hand
Results:

- Include results on a ruler drawn or computer generated chart.

The most important part of the report. A discussion and analysis of your data.

- Discuss the results and cite evidence to show you accomplished your objective.
- Did your results match the theoretical value?
- What sources of error or uncertainty affected your results?
- How did these sources affect the results?
- How can you reduce or account for these sources in the future?
