Objective: fluid principle being demonstrated.
Procedure: “As issued by the Instructor”; exceptions
should be noted.
Data: use “raw” lab data; no calculated or converted
values.
Results: tables and/or graphs
Conclusions: support with values from Results. Present
any comparisons with published data.
Appendix: list any source used to prepare report; e.g.
source of published values.
