Question description

The Lab Report must contain the following eight sections in this order:

  1. Title Page - This page must include the title of your report, your name, course name, instructor, and date submitted.
  2. Abstract - This section should provide a brief summary of the methods, results, and conclusions. It should allow the reader to see what was done, how it was done, and the results. It should not exceed 200 words and should be the last part written (although it should still appear right after the title page).
  3. Introduction - This section should include background information on water quality and an overview of why the experiment was conducted. It should first contain background information of similar studies previously conducted. This is accomplished by citing existing literature from similar experiments. Secondly, it should provide an objective or a reason why the experiment is being done. Why do we want to know the answer to the question we are asking? Finally, it should end the hypothesis from your Week Two experiment, and the reasoning behind your hypothesis. This hypothesis should not be adjusted to reflect the “right” answer. Simply place your previous hypothesis in the report here. You do not lose points for an inaccurate hypothesis; scientists often revise their hypotheses based on scientific evidence following the experiments.
  4. Materials and Methods - This section should provide a detailed description of the materials used in your experiment and how they were used. A step-by-step rundown of your experiment is necessary; however, it should be done in paragraph form, not in a list format. The description should be exact enough to allow for someone reading the report to replicate the experiment, however, it should be in your own words and not simply copied and pasted from the lab manual.
  5. Results - This section should include the data and observations from the experiment. All tables and graphs should be present in this section. In addition to the tables, you must describe the data in text; however, there should be no personal opinions or discussion outside of the results located within this area.
  6. Discussion - This section should interpret your data and provide conclusions. Discuss the meanings of your findings in this area. Was your hypothesis accepted or rejected, and how were you able to determine this? Did the results generate any future questions that might benefit from a new experiment? Were there any outside factors (i.e., temperature, contaminants, time of day) that affected your results? If so, how could you control for these in the future?
  7. Conclusions - This section should provide a brief summary of your work.
  8. References - List references used in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Drinking Water Quality


Body Paragraph #1 - Background:
Water quality is an important issue for everyone in the world. In the United States tap
watered is claimed to be usable, yet the majority of people drink filtered or bottled water. This is
because the bottled or filtered water goes through a thorough filtering process to eliminate
chemical and bacteria and make it appropriate for consumption. According to the EPA, the
United States has one of the safest water supplies in the world (Sudak, 2017). This is because
there are regulations set stating that tap water must meet certain criteria. Bottled and filtered
water also have set regulations which must be followed because of this it is believed that bottled
water is safer. “Bottled water produces up to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. In 2006,
the U.S. population consumed more than 30 billion bottles of water, of which more than 80%
went to a landfill or were incinerated” (Sudak,2017) this is evidence of the high consumption of
bottled water products. Yet studies show that treated drinking water may become contaminated
while travelling in the distribution system on the way to consumers (Heibati et al.,2017).
Body Paragraph # 2 - Objective:
The objective of this study is to determine water quality of different sources of water.
These sources include tap water and drinking bottled water from different vendors. This
importance of this study and determining the objective is because the consumption of water is
critical for human life. It is i...
