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?
