Results and discussion 45 in this section students

This preview shows page 11 - 12 out of 12 pages.

Results and Discussion (45%) In this section students must include sample calculations used to generate experimental results, and summarize the results in tables and/or graphs. Results from calculations used to assess accuracy and precision of quantitative results must be included here. A discussion is a logical explanation of the experimental results presented in paragraph form. A logical explanation is based on comparisons of results calculated from student data and literature values, possible only after the accuracy and precision of calculated values has been assessed. Many of the Goldwhite and Tikkanen Discussion Questions should be used to generate quality discussions. Answer these prior to drafting your discussion and weave your responses into the text whenever possible. Make sure to properly cite literature values ( see References below ). A good source is the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics , which is in the reference section of the library. Students should identify the most critical measurement (that which has the greatest uncertainty) and point out approximations that may affect the accuracy of the calculated results. Conclusions (10%) Students must generate conclusions from the Discussion section that reflect on the experimental objectives stated in the Purpose section of the report. References (5%) Students are required to reference all citations used in the preparation of the report. Please reference the ACS Style Guide for an expanded discussion on acceptable reference formats. Recommended are presented below: Books without Editors : Author1; Author2; Author3; etc. Chapter Title. Book Title , Edition number; Series Information (if any); Publisher; Place of Publication, Year; Volume Number, Pagination. Internet Resources : Author (if any). Title of Site.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
