should be mentioned as well as the reason why. Another example is if the handout said to collect data for 30 seconds, but you chose to collect it for 40 seconds. In this case, you should also explain why this was done. Also notice that after the end of a section you need to introduce a blank line, so as to separate the different sections of the report. Results and Discussion - 25 marks Unless otherwise stated in the lab handout, in this section you present your processed results and your key findings. Raw data, for example the tables that you fill out during the lab, should be placed in the appendix at the end of the report and should not be presented in the main body of the report. Remember that there is a page limit to the report and you should therefore think carefully what information is presented and how it is presented. For example, if you are including a figure and you want to make reference to the figure, then it should be done in the following manner - In figure 1 we show the relationship between the turbulent Reynolds number Re λ and the dissipation coefficient C ε for two different inlet velocities. Note how the figure has a caption which clearly explains what is seen. The axes are clearly labelled and legible, as are the symbols used to differentiate between the two data sets. Although the units are dimensionless in this example, make sure you use the same class of units i.e. if you are using metric units, then use metric units on both axes. Since these are discrete data points, they are not connected by any curve/line, however, the fits to the data are continuous lines because these can be represented by an equation, as shown in figure 1.

### What students are saying

• 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.
