The abstract is a brief, one-paragraph summary of the lab report. Introduction-15% The introduction should be approximately one-half to one page and should include pertinent information and background. It should answer the following questions: What is the purpose and why is it important? What is your Hypothesis? What results do you expect and why? What other experiments led up to this one?
