For this assignment, use the data collected in the lab to write and submit a FULLY TYPED report.
Read page 47-48:Laboratory Report Guidelines in your lab manual to prepare for the formal lab report.
Scroll down to see the Formal Post Lab Report rubric. Your report will be graded based on this rubric.

Attention: Even though collaborative group work and data sharing is encouraged during each in-person lab activity, each student must produce their own post-lab reports for which they will be graded individually. The ONLY post-lab report sections allowed to be similar among students are the methods and results sections. Similar, in this context, does not imply identical; that is, two students can have the same data but the way the data is presented in a table or chart should not be identical. Again, the report is meant to be written individually.
We will use Turnitin to monitor plagiarism in this report. Plagiarism or high similarity in lab reports are NOT tolerated in this course. If Turnitin displays that a report is plagiarized, regardless of the matching percentage, the student will receive a zero for the plagiarized sections or the entire lab report. In specific cases, plagiarism may result in a “F” or “FF” for the course.
Follow the rubric below and these formatting guidelines to create your report:
Each section, following the rubric, should have a header (Introduction, Results….etc.). You can add sub-headers as well if needed. The font for the headers and sub-headers cannot be larger than a size 14.
Use Times New Roman or Calibri as font styles for the body of the report with a font size 12.
Number your pages, but exclude the title page.
Your report has to be double spaced.
The introduction must be written in present or future tense. The rest of the report must be in the past tense using passive voice. This means avoid using “you”, “I”, or “our” in your report.
All the sections should be in paragraph form with the exception of the results section.
All the data collected in the lab must be in the results section in tables as the ones shown below. Create the tables in WORD and do not copy/paste the tables below to avoid any issues. The tables must be numbered and contain a short descriptive title.
Use Microsoft Equation Editor for ALL the calculations in you report.
Your references (you can use more than 3 if needed) must follow the ACS format. A page can be found under the “Supporting Documents” Module titled ” ACS Citation Sources” where you can find links to help you with the citations. Look at both and use the one that is easier for you to follow. There is also a link above in this page.
