5 How to Write the Lab Report - Sample Instruction Experimental Investigation of πA sample lab report for this activity is provided below as an example for you to follow when writing future lab reports. ApparatusRuler, Vernier caliper, penny, marble, “D” cell, PVC cylinders. IntroductionHow is the circumference of a circle related to its diameter? In this lab, you design an experiment to test a hypothesis about the geometry of circles. This activity is an introduction to physics laboratory investigations. It is designed to give practice taking measurements, analyzing data, and drawing inferences without requiring any special knowledge about physics. Five objects were chosen such that measurements of their circumference and diameter could be obtained easily and would be reproducible. Therefore, we did not use irregularly shaped objects or ones that could be deformed when measured. The diameter of each of the five objects was measured with either the ruler or caliper. The circumference and diameter of each object was
