ABSTRACT (10%) This experiment is designed to determine the pressure inside an unopened container of carbonated soda. Strain gage(s) are used in the experiment. Strain gage output is recorded with a strain gage indicator and used to calculate the internal pressure of the soda can. The measurement result on the soda can pressure is reported. INTRODUCTION (15%) Describe procedures or methods used in your lab. Try to be concise. RESULTS REPORTED (55%) (Use equations and charts to report the results – both experimental and analytical) The objectives of this lab are: (a) to construct and learn to use a strain gauge;

The results are reported as follows: (Note: You need to show your measurement results and the internal pressure of soda can. All the necessary calculation steps must be presented in this section. Your final results must be justified and discussed. Please use charts or diagrams as much as possible to report your results) CONCLUSIONS (10%) (Summarize significant results obtained for this lab, no more than 200 words) OVERALL QUALITY (10%) (Note: Use 1.5 space, Times New Roman font with size 12, Use margins: 1" all around The body of your report should be no more than 6 pages) 2...
