Parts of A Lab Report Experiment

 

I.Title

An interesting title could be worded as a cause and effect or

A what if type

 

The Effect of Spinner Rims on Gas Mileage

(cause) (effect)

 

 

II. Problem

The problem tells why you are doing the experiment,

what do you want to prove,

what do you need to learn

 

 

Will spinner rims cause it to be more expensive to use a car

 

 

 

III. Hypothesis

You propose a possible solution to your problem

An educated guess,

best written as a question

 

 

Will spinner rims use more miles per gallon of gasoline?

Best done in question form, as above

 

Spinner rims will cause the car to use more miles per gallon.

As worded in statement form.

V. Method (procedure)

Tell anybody in the world how to do your experiment

How should we do the experiment in clear easy to understand details

 

  1. record beginning mileage of car
  2. keep a daily journal of weather, traffic conditions, type of driving (highway, city), special situations.
  3. fill car with a full tank of gasoline
  4. record mileage driven each day, week
  5. drive back and forth to work over the course of 4 weeks
  6. record end mileage
  7. record total amount of gas used
  8. put on spinner rims
  9. fill car with a full tank of gasoline
  10. record mileage driven each day, week
  11. drive back and forth to work over the course of 4 weeks
  12. record end mileage
  13. record total amount of gas used

 

VI. Observations

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gas, mileage, times, distances,

any information

that is noted during the experiment

Every graph must have a title

Every graph must have a key

 

 

VIII. Conclusion

A statement that answers the question posed by your problem and/ or hypothesis.

Should state whether your hypothesis was correct or incorrect and why.

 

As noted by the evidence the data shows the hypothesis to be correct.

Spinner rims have caused the car to use more gas .
