Title of the Experiment Name Date Objective 1-2 sentences describing the purpose of the experiment. Make this descriptive, but also short and concise. Theory (3 pts) In this section, describe the “big picture” idea that the lab is connected to. Explain the theory in as much detail as you can, don’t assume your audience knows anything about physics. This section should reference any equations you used in the lab, and should explain what the equations mean and/or how the equations were derived. The theory section should not include data from your experiment. Don’t calculate any results yet, that will show up later in the lab report. Experimental Design (3 pts) Describe the physical steps that you performed to carry out the lab. Don’t just copy the lab packet, synthesize your notes into a couple paragraphs walking the reader through the lab procedure. You don’t need to include irrelevant details (such as trials you messed up and had to redo), but you should include enough detail so someone reading your work could follow your procedure and reproduce the lab.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
