Unformatted text preview: cant be uncertainties. These two terms are not interchangeable . In all the lab reports well need sources of error in the discussion part; both systematic and random . Systematic errors are the ones always acting on the system in one direction , making our measurements larger or lesser every time. Random errors are random ! And since were on the subject, systematic errors cant be reduced by multiple trials , thats random! Alright, so these are the things worth points in abstract, 5 things, 2 point each: Purpose, Procedure summary, Numerical final results , Conclusion, Clarity. Anything more is not needed, anything less will cost points. Most of you seem to either forget the numerical results part or put every calculated number in abstract and leave out the main ones. Put the final numerical results in abstract! Still problem with the golden rules certain value and its uncertainty should match in decimal places. Thats always!...
