Dear 155A Students, The memorandum for the fourth experiment must not exceed four pages in length, including figures and tables. It should focus on the most important results of the experiment and include a concise discussion of them. Conclusions that are drawn from the analysis should be explicitly stated. No detailed introduction or experimental procedure section is appropriate; these will instead be part of the oral presentation. Bullets or numbered points are appropriate in a memorandum. A complete and detailed derivation of the governing equations should be provided in the Appendix of the memorandum. Your format may vary. Below is an example format: Summary - like an abstract - major findings
