Aim how can we accurately report the results of an experiment

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


Lab report

Lab Report

  • 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 and objective

Heading and Objective

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.


Method setup

Method/Setup

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


Aim how can we accurately report the results of an experiment

Data

Include:

  • Raw data sheets

  • Ruler drawn or computer generated charts

  • Include all units


Graphs

Graphs

  • Include all graphs when appropriate.

  • Ruler drawn or computer generated.

  • Correctly labeled axes, completed title, best fit line


Calculations results

Calculations/Results

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.


Conclusion discussion of results

Conclusion/Discussion of Results

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?
