General Lab Guidelines See also: Lab Manual pp.3-5, 10-22 These are general guidelines that should be followed for all lab reports unless other instructions are given. For each lab, additional guidelines specific to that particular lab will be posted on Blackboard and should also be followed. DATA ! You must turn in all of the original data that was taken in the lab. These should generally be the tables provided torn directly from the manual (please cut off the frayed edges). Before you leave the lab, I must see your data and sign it. ! All data MUST include units. The numbers are meaningless without units. Although not necessary, it is usually good practice to use SI units (kg, m, s). ! All data MUST include uncertainty. There are basically three ways to determine the uncertainty of a given quantity: o For measurements that you make one time (generally things like length and mass) the uncertainty is based on the scale of the measurement device used. A general guideline is that the uncertainty is half of the smallest division on the scale. A typical meter stick, for example, can measure to within +/- 0.5mm.

### What students are saying

• 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.
