D Page 1 Purpose: * Do not copy from lab manual * Basically paraphrase purpose from manual or be creative. Theory: * Introduce the equations that you will use by stating them and * Explaining what they’re used for. Data:- Consists of: * All measure quantities * Tables- Must have a title and be numbered- All data in tables should have: units and error on measurements. * Graphs- Must have a title- A proper scale- Axes must be labeled [title (units)]- Points plotted must have error bars (unless to small in which case state it on the graph)- For linear ±ts, lines of best and worst ±t are needed.- Sample calculations:- Show an example of all calculations and the involved error. (see Appendix B for errors in measurement) Discussion: * Do your results agree with some theoretical prediction? * Do two results agree (different methods)? * Do they agree with a theoritical value? * What measurements contributed the major part of the error? * Could the experiment be improved
