Guidelines for a Physics Lab ReportsA laboratory report has three main functions:(1) To provide a record of the experiments and raw data included in the report,(2) To provide sufficient information to reproduce or extend the data, and(3) To analyze the data, present conclusions and make recommendations based on theexperimental work.General Comments:The single most important requirement for a laboratory report is clarity. Imagine that youraudience is one of your classmates who missed that experiment.If you are using a word processor for your lab report, then use the spelling and grammarcheckers. The grammar check can be annoying because often technical sentences are wordyand complex, but it will help you avoid using too many passive sentences. In general, passivesentences are less understandable. However, grammar check will not assess clarity, and it willignore simple errors. (I do not doubt there are still mistakes in this document I have run it throughspelling and grammar checks.)Many technical writers prefer to write sentences with passive verbs. A simple example: Thespring constant k was found from the slope to be 3.02 N/m. If you run this sentence through thegrammar check, it will tell you that was found is a verb in the passive voice. To change this toan active voice you could write: The spring constant k is the slope, 3.02 N/m. Not everysentence has to be in an active voice. What you want is a report that is readable.Lab Report Stru
