figures may be hand-drawn. Reports should contain the following sections. Treat each item as a section heading: TITLE/DATE: Put the name of the experiment and the date centered at the top of the first page. AUTHOR/PARTNERS: State your name and your lab partner’s names. OBJECTIVE: Provide a brief description of the objectives of the experiment. THEORY: Provide a brief discussion of the theory behind the experiment.
This section should include the principles involved, the physical laws, and anticipated results. If the lab handout asked for hypothesis statements, put them here. DO NOT COPY THE THEORY FROM THE HANDOUT. IF YOU DO SO YOU WILL GET A ZERO ON YOUR LAB REPORT. THE THEORY SHOULD BE STATED IN YOUR OWN WORDS BASED ON YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT WENT ON IN LAB. METHODS: Provide a brief description of the apparatus in the experiment and how it was used.
Diagrams are often helpful to assist with your explanation. AGAIN, DO NOT COPY THE LAB PROCEDURE FROM THE HANDOUT — STATE WHAT YOU DID IN YOUR OWN WORDS WITH ENOUGH DETAIL THAT SOMEONE ELSE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU DID. DATA/RESULTS: Provide the data collected during the experiment, and the results of any calculations you did on the data. HERE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE THE TABLES IN THE ATTACHED ELECTRONIC LAB HANDOUT. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DATA SHOULD BE YOUR DIRECT MEASUREMENTS FROM THE INSTRUMENTS IN THE UNITS THAT THE INSTRUMENT WAS USING. IF YOU NEED TO CONVERT THE UNITS OF YOUR MEASUREMENT, SHOW THAT AS A SEPARATE DATA COLUMN.
Insects have been a nuisance to man since the beginning of time, up until the present. Oneof the plagues that struck Egypt was swarms of crickets, and locusts, which destroyed crops, andate entire fields. Swarms of Crickets can cover up to 210 km. There have been cases of up to100,000,000,000 insects in a swarm (one hundred billion). In these huge masses, they cancompletely destroy the land and ...
SAMPLE CALCULATIONS: Provide examples of each type of calculation you performed on the data. You do not need to show each and every calculation, just an example of each type. My solution to the Plane Problem (see Week 02 discussion) provides a good example of how to do a sample calculation.
