About Lab Reports

Some important things about lab reports:

  • Whatever you do, you should turn in a lab report that is public.  Meaning it should be online so that other students can read it.  There are two likely options.  First, you could make it a google document and then share it publicly.  Second, you could make a blog (that is what I would do).
  • What do you need to include in your report?  Well, you obviously need describe what you did and what you figured out.  
  • The report should include uncertainty calculations.
  • The lab should also include some sort of numerical model.  It doesn’t have to in vpython, this could be in a spreadsheet.
  • The basic idea of all labs is to show how some model agrees with experimental evidence.
Oh, you want some examples?  How about this:
