Introduction section. Heed the Academic Integrity Notice and Citation Tips! Name (2.5 points) and explain (2.5 points) each concept explored in the experiment. 5
Nomenclature section. 2 points: Disclose and explain all equations you utilized
the Analysis section. 2 points: Name and define all variables in each equation, including appropriate orders and units of measure and for calculations 1 point: Explain your own abbreviations and notations These items can be stated within the Analysis section instead, if not stated in a self-titled section. 5 points
Experiment Protocol section. Heed the Academic Integrity Notice and Citation Tips! 3 points: Summarize your set-up (materials, equipment, procedure) and conduct (history) of the experiment 2 points: State at least one relevant safety precaution taken throughout your conduct 15 points Data Collection section.
the Data Sheet Notice. 5 points: The completed, signed, and verified Data Sheet included as a separate attachment! Additional Pages can be made and attached as needed. 10 points: Responses to Questions on Data Sheet, if asked 30 points Analysis section. 10 points: Complete Analysis required on the Data Sheet 10 points: Any additional reasoning and calculations based on your Data Collection. Labeling of conclusive values (i.e., percent deviation) with an appropriate reporting of significant figures and units 10 points: Any tables, graphs, plots, schematics, and drawings. They must be organized, labeled, and explained with appropriate titles, axes, labels, scaling, units. 15 points
Conclusions section. 10 points: Interpretation of Analysis sub-section. Yes or No: did your analysis verify the concepts? Justify your response with your analysis. WARNING: Points will be deducted for avoidance of blunders or if you do not discuss those complications. 5 points: R5 points: Realistic Application sub-section. 2.5 points: Explain the relevancy of your results in relation to the concepts learned. 2.5 points: Explain a relevant application outside of the laboratory classroom setting. How does it benefit general society, not just ‘scientists or physicists’? (Potential loss of 10 points for IESP)
Acknowledgements section. Cite and list all sources (i.e., your data, course documents, textbooks, online resources) in an appropriate format. Heed the Academic Integrity Notice and Citation Tips!
Academic Integrity Notice: Plagiarism is enforced with software monitoring. 1. Do not copy-paste the Introduction and Procedures from the Lab Exercise documents! The experiment must be discussed in your own words as a succinct summary. Instead of repeating and re-writing descriptions of the experiment and essential points of the procedure, relieve yourself from wasting time by means of the Appendix section and citations. 2. The Analysis prompts and Questions prompts do not have to be repeated in the report. They can and should be acknowledged as referenced citations, with the Data Sheet and Lab Exercise documents listed in the Appendix section.
Citation Tips: Complete citation formatting is required: Authorship, title of the reference, and source of the document, must be stated at minimum; other relevant details should be specified when possible. Some examples of accepted citation format styles include, but are not limited to: 1. MLA (https://www.scribbr.com/category/mla/), 2. APA (https://www.scribbr.com/category/apa-style/), 3. Chicago author-date (https://www.scribbr.com/chicago-style/author-date/), and 4. AIP (http://physics.gac.edu/~huber/misc/aiprefs.htm)
I also have attached the data sheet that I completed so please follow the results from that. I’ll also attach the readings provided.
1. To within what percent did you show that the density of aluminum is a constant and is independent of the shape of the sample?
2. How do substances that float in water differ from those that do not? (Hint: Name the property of the substance you will use for the comparison.) – Substances that float in water are less dense than water(1.0 g/〖cm〗^3)
3. Compare your result for the density of maple wood to the average value of the density obtained by your classmates. Refer to the classroom board. Your answer should be expressed as a percent deviation. Is the spread in values on the classroom board consistent with the number of significant figures each has reported? Give the criteria you used to answer this last question.
