The following is the proper format for writing up lab reports in Mr. Heldt's class. Note: All lab write ups are to be TYPED unless you are told differently.
Laboratory Write-up Format
What is the intent or point of the lab?
What apparatus are used?
How is the lab carried out?
Be complete and precise to insure that the lab is repeatable!
Include any tables, graphs, charts, etc.
All calculations must also be completely shown.
This section may be omitted only if questions are not assigned.
This is arguably the most important section of the write-up.
Must include possible sources of error.
Attempt to answer the question Why?
