i have to conduct a experiment for bio class
and write a laboratory report.
i dont know how to. the experiment is "does sugar dissolve quicker in hot or cold water"?
the hypothesis is yes.
what do i have to do after all of that?
1/Introduction: your hypothesis and what make you think it so.
2/Describe your experimental setup so that it can be replicated by someone else just from the note
3/Record and describe the results of the experiment, and present any statistical analysis of the results
4/(In short report it can be mixed with 3) concludes if your hypothesis was confirmed or not and why it is (or could) be so.
Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without
any proof. (Ashley Montague)
1. Objective: the main point of your experiment (e.g: decide in which temperature sugar dissolve best in water)
2. Background: describe why you did the experiment
2. Hypothesis: write what the theory say about your experiment. You may do it just briefly.
3. Experiment: list all your materials and tools, and also describe your method. Try some flow chart to write your methode
4. Result: contain your result. You may add some necessary calculation
5. Discussion: discuss about your result. Write why your experiment give you such result, and where will it lead you
6. Conclusion: make sure it answer your objective
Hope it useful,
A good lab report has a format that includes five main sections. They are the introduction, methods and materials, results, discussion and conclusion, and citation. You can find many examples of how to write a biology lab report on web. Remember that lab reports are individual assignments. You may have a lab partner, but the work that you do and report on should be your own. When you are writing about methods and results, be sure to use past tense because you have completed the experiments by the time you begin writing.

Lab reports are an essential part of all laboratory courses and usually a significant part of your grade. You can follow the steps
1. Title: The title says what you did. It should be brief and describe the main point of the experiment or investigation.
2. Introduction / Purpose: Usually the Introduction is one paragraph that explains the objectives or purpose of the lab. In one sentence, state the hypothesis.
3. Materials: List everything needed to complete your experiment.
4. Methods: Describe the steps you completed during your investigation. This is your procedure.
5. Data: Numerical data obtained from your procedure usually is presented as a table.
6. Results: Describe in words what the data means. Sometimes the Results section is combined with the Discussion
7. Conclusions: Write a single paragraph that sums up what happened in the experiment, whether your hypothesis was accepted or rejected, and what this means.
8. Figures & Graphs: Graphs and figures must both be labeled with a descriptive title.
9. References: If your research was based on someone else's work or if you cited facts that require documentation, then you should list these references.
