Lab Report Requirement In addition to completing the lab note book, it is essential that each group present the lab report in the following format:- 1. Title 2. Abstract 3. Introduction (theory) 4.

Conclusion The aim of the lab report is to evaluate your understanding of the subject, hence you are strongly advised to discuss the abstract, theory and conclusion of your lab in your own words in as scientific/technical manner as possible. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. The report will have a common introduction (theory) section. In this section, you should include any theory that may be relevant to understanding your report.

All of this means background information, maybe a little history, reaction schemes, etc. But keep it short and general: save the juicy bits for the discussion section (described above). This section should be no longer than 2 pages (single-spaced). For each week, you will report:- 1. Title The title says what you did. It should be brief (aim for ten words or less) and describe the main point of the experiment or investigation 2. Abstract At the top of any journal article (scientific or not), you will find an abstract. The abstract is a very concise and yet detailed summary of the report. It exists so that very busy researchers can learn what you've achieved and how you've achieved it, without having to read your whole report. It should contain the purpose of your experiment, the method an
