Laboratory Manual: Identification I 1. Introduction This lab is designed to give you experience in collecting and recording data. The data from this lab is both quantitative and qualitative. You will record data in your lab book and write a lab report from the data you have collected. In this lab, you will attempt to identify various materials using optical observations, density measurement, and magnetic response. You should already be familiar with the concepts of accuracy and precision, if not, you should make yourself familiar with them. Accuracy is how close the measured or observed value is to the true value. Precision refers to how reproducible an experiment is, and hence how close a set of measured values are to the average of the set of measured values. Make sure you record all your results in a neat and orderly fashion in your lab book. Charts and diagrams are often helpful. Good recording habits will pay off when your memory begins to fail you, and it is a portion of your grade. Trust me, even if you have an excellent memory now, someday it will fade. 2.
