Sample Lab Report This is an example of a well written report from the elementary labs As explained in the lab manual it contains only the signi cant details of the experiment the analysis and some conclusions Particularly pertinent features are called out in the marginal notes Background material is not needed because the reader is assumed to have the lab manual available Although this document is typed for legibility you are not expected to type reports nor to produce fancy graphs A carefully hand written paper is entirely suf cient Physics 007 Experiment 101a The large amplitude pendulum by I M Student partner A Bumbler February 30 2001 We are trying to measure the amplitude dependence of the period of a simple pendulum By extrapolating to zeroamplitude we determine g Procedure The procedure was as in the lab book except 1 Rather than measure the pendulum length directly we used a meter stick with caliper jaws to measure from the support to the bottom of the pendulum ball We measured the diameter of the ball with calipers and found the distance from the support to the center of the ball by subtraction 2 To get the angle we measured the distances s and d shown in the sketch and used the relation sin 0 ds This seemed more accurate than using the small protractor provided Dita total length 0757 m i 0002 m ball diameter 00256 m i 0005 m pendulum length 0744 m i 002 m string length s 0731 m i 002 m Short statement of intention Only changes are described with a diagram for clarity Single items of data are just listed with uncertainties The period was measured three times for each angle and averaged d m T s averT s 0 rad Tables compactly 164 1002 17326 17330 17328 17328226 d SPlayase Ofdam 104 17294 17296 17297 17296143 043 17286 17288 17288 17287059 226 173801738117382 17381314 385 17606 17609 17609 17608555 292 17460 17460 17462 17461411 We used Graphical Analysis to plot T vs 02 and t a straight line The straight line is an acceptable t showing that the relationship T To 1 0216 is reasonable The graph is attached To get g we use the results from the program Explain calculations but don t show intercept To 1728 i 0002 s arithmetic slope Tol6 0108 i 0001s gt T0 173 i 02 and the pendulum equation T0 Zn lgl to nd g 984 ms The length of the pendulum is the largest uncertainty at 03 so it determines the uncertainty in g 984 i 003 ms Comments Our results are consistent with the claims in the lab manual The value of g is about the Be sure your same as we found in the freefall experiment conclusions agree witk your data Comparison to accepted values not usually appropriate Period 5 Large amplitude pendulum I 01 02 03 theta 2 rad Axes are labeled with units Data points marked clearly
