data must show experimental data points ;• graphs must W r i t i n g
I’m working on an engineering report and need support to help me study.
I have a lab report for water resources engineering and I did the excel calculations I just need help writing the report
Introduction (10 points)The introduction should be a paragraph that contains the goals of the lab and an overview of what the reader can expect to find within the report. State the objective of the lab exercise. Though this is provided in the lab documents, the purpose should be restated in your own words. Provide a brief overview or “roadmap” of the report contents
.Results: This is the only section in which results should be introduced, present your final results from the analysis(tables). Start this section with a brief description of what your data shows. Give your reader a context in which to view the data. Present only your information (raw data, tables from excel sheet, graphs…etc.)
Discussion: You should explain your results and their ramifications by answering the questions provided in the procedures (usually it is 3 to 5 questions). You can include details of the principles, relationships, generalizations, and consequences of your experiment. You must demonstrate that you understand your investigation and corresponding results. Be sure to relate your interpretation and discussion back to your objectives. Do your data answer your original question? You should also include a discussion of possible errors and exceptions. If relevant or available, discuss how your results compare pertinent standards.A good conclusion is usually quite short. A few sentences should be sufficient. Restate your numerical results, but do not editorialize about your results.
Conclusion: Summarize the major points of your memo. A good conclusion is usually quite short. A few sentences should be sufficient. Restate your numerical results, but do not editorialize about your results.
.References (2.5 points)List all your reference writing HintsA lab report is considered a technical report. As such, it must be professional and neat. The report must be written with a word processor of your choice. All drawings must be made with a straight-edge and clearly labeled or drawn on the computer. Plots are an integral part of technical reports and must be professional:•Plots must be computer generated;•Scales must be readable to the same accuracy as the data obtained duringthe test;•Axes must be labelled;•Units of variables must be shown;•Various run results must be distinguished by different symbols and/or colors and each curve must be identified by a legend or a title;•Curves derived from data must show experimental data points;•Graphs must be drawn as smooth curves that represent an average of the experimentally determined data.•Curves derived from an equation should contain no symbols, but show the equation of the curve;•Graphs must be labeled/legendA portion of the grade for each lab memo will be based on the writing itself.•Be as clear, direct and concise as you can. Grammar, spelling, clarity, and style will all be considered. •Pay attention to tense. When describing established, factual material, the present tense can be used. A discussion section is generally written in the present tense. Even though you are discussing past results, you are interpreting them now. Completed procedures are usually referred to in the past tense.
