Lab Report
Lab report is one way we used during of after an experiment in a laboratory to subtly record and discuss the experiment. During a lab, we sometimes can observe only the physical part of the experiment, or may be some visible chemical changes. These changes indicate that the experiment we do is successful or not. However, in order to understand and achieve more from just simply doing the experiment, we write lab report to more profoundly understand the internal meanings of the experiment we do, and the eventual purpose of the lab. Doing a lab report are also essential to making corrections for further experiments similar to previously done ones. Pass experiences can help improve and better the new lab in many ways such as the procedure. We can make the procedure clearer and more precise. By doing so, we can do our best to limit the possibility of ingredients that may alternate final results popping up during a lab. Without a precise data and purpose, a lab would not be a lab because it has no means of proving anything that we don’t know of. Too many alternating factors always cause a lab to be useless because we cannot focus on the specific thing we are looking at. Thus, a lab report is essential not just for the lab that the report is for, but essential for bettering future similar experiences.
A lab report contains many different parts. One part of the lab report is the analysis of the experiment, which really stands most importantly to a lab. The analysis part is usually required description of the reason to do the lab, the process of things happen during the lab, and usually some amount of calculations to find the final result. The analysis part indicates whether a lab is successful or not. Description of the lab is required to be mentioned a little bit during the analysis part because the analysis directs to the purpose, allowing reporter to recall…...

Abbon Laboratories

...In researching the needs for Abbon Laboratories in regards to their email server, I researched Naïve Bayesian Filters. Bayesian spam filtering; is a statistical technique of e-mail filtering. It makes use of a naive Bayes classifier to identify spam e-mail. The Bayesian classifiers work by associating the use of tokens (typically words, phrases, etc), with spam and non-spam e-mails and then using Bayesian inference to calculate a probability that an email is or is not spam. Bayesian spam filtering is considered to be a powerful procedure for dealing with spam, that can be tailored to the email needs of individual users, and gives low false positive spam detection rates that are generally acceptable to users. The process of Bayesian spam filtering works in the way of distinguishing particular words which have a higher probability of occurring in spam email. This filter however, doesn’t know these probabilities in advance, and must be first trained so it can build them up. In order to train the filter, the user must first manually indicate whether a new email is spam or not. For all the words in each training email, the filter will adjust the probabilities that each word will appear in spam or legitimate email in its database. After training the system, the word probabilities are used to compute the probability that an email with a particular set of words in it belongs to a particular category. Each word in the email contributes to the email’s spam probability, or......

Laboratory Report: Structure and Function

...Laboratory Report: Structure and Function (24) M. Author, C. O. Author, and C. O. Authortwo (11) Performed 20 November 2006; submitted 27 November 2006 (10) Abstract-Limit the abstract to four to five sentences stating the following: (a) statement of the problem, (b) methodology, (c) pertinent results, and (d) conclusion. Avoid numbers and symbols in the abstract. After you have written the abstract, write the title. In not more than 13 words, choose a title that would reflect your abstract. To do this you may use the “variable-method” structure, e.g. “Measuring a car’s acceleration using a pendulum.” Here the variable is the gravitational acceleration and the method is the simple pendulum. Another way is to use the “dependent-independent variable” structure, e.g. “Angular displacement of a pendulum in an accelerating car.” Here the dependent variable is the angular displacement of a pendulum and the dependent variable is the car’s acceleration. Note: do not mention any keyword in the title that you will never discuss in your report. A title is a promise that you must keep. (9) I. INTRODUCTION (8) The main purpose of the introduction is to give a motivation for the problem in the laboratory experiment performed. There are many ways to do this. One way is to start with mention something familiar to your reader, then slowly lead him to something unfamiliar—your problem. Along the way, define the terms in the title starting from the subject......

Laboratory 8

...INTERPRETATION OF DATA The laboratory experiment we did last time was Laboratory Exercise No. 8 which is “Determination of Buoyant Force Using Archimedes’ Principle”. In this experiment we performed the case that the object was partially submerged. We used a piece of wood coated with a wax so that the water will not be absorbed by the wood, and to make the result more accurate. In our fluid mechanics lecture the buoyant force of the object is equal to its weight. But in this experiment we are determining the buoyant force of the wood using Archimedes’ Principle. Using the beaker as our container for the liquid, we put a clay on its peak so that the water coming from it will not spill and also to collect all the water that will displaced by the wood by that we can lessen the error. It putting the peace of wood in the beaker, we should carefully put it so that the water will not splash that can cause error. The water that was displaced by the piece of wood was put in a graduated cylinder so that we can determine its volume. We can determine the weight of liquid in graduated cylinder or the liquid that was displaced from the beaker by the piece by subtracting the weight of graduated cylinder with water by the weight of cylinder alone. The weight of graduated cylinder with water is equal to 187 grams and the weight of cylinder is equal to 96.19 grams giving us a result of 90.81 grams as a weight of liquid, since it is in grams, and the needed unit in our laboratory experiment......

The Science Laboratory

...in science laboratories, swishes our nose. On the right, in the spacious lab, there is a small, wooden cabinet filled with chemical liquids. Sanguine, emerald, metallic grey, xanthous and yet the colours go on. As we take a detailed look at the liquids, we automatically lean closer to the cabinet, and its frowzy, stuffy smell hits our nose. In a hitech science laboratory, we would not have imagined such smell. In the entire room, there are only ten tables for the individual learning. A teacher is more useful, when they teach individually, especially when it comes to a scientific subject. Each table has an electronic balance, a huge, intact microscope and an aseptic lavatory. After a quick survey of the interior, our eyes come to a woman, sitting near to the window. Brown, short, straight hair, slender, attractive face with black, thick frame glasses. She reads with great concentration, her eyes rarely look up from the book. Every now and then she takes a long, deep breath and her shoulders slowly rise and fall. Her metal bracelet clings on the grey, hardware table with every move, when she turns a page. Suddenly, an agonised, thin voice splits in the air. As we look at a young experimenter, who sits near to the reading woman, we see a beaker full to the brim with scarlet liquid in front of him. He quietly swears as he tries to undo his last, obviously failed step. The woman looks at him perplexedly. He seems younger, than anyone else in the laboratory, therefore...

Buckman Laboratories

...Buckman Laboratories Analyze the strategy that Buckman used and compare it to the recommendations in IT Savvy, Managing and Using Information Systems, and other references.  What about this is important or remarkable? What did they do that was in keeping with IT and Business Savvy firms? Buckman Laboratories is a private global specialty chemical supplier, which was founded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1945. The company’s core business includes paper, water, leather technologies and performance chemicals. Buckman had been a leading manufacturer of specialty chemicals for over 50 years. In 1978, after the loss of Dr. Stanley Buckman, Robert Buckman the son of Stanley became the new chairman and CEO. At this point the company had $29 million in sales. Robert Buckman from the very beginning wanted to change the way the company operated, especially the management style of the organization, going from centralization to decentralization. The company was structured as a hierarchical organization, where one man made all the decisions to a flat organizational structure where relationships are fluid and everyone does whatever needs to be done in order to complete business. Flat organizations respond quickly to dynamic and change and are more ‘entrepreneurial’. (Pearlson and Saunders, 2013) The company had a new goal and that was to be “customer-driven”. One main aspect to the new approach was to expand the sales force. He wanted 30% of total employment to be sales people.......

How Much Water Is in the Hydrate? Laboratory Report

...HOW MUCH WATER IS IN THE HYDRATE? LABORATORY REPORT PREPARED BY: CHEMISTRY 113 LAB February 2016 PROFESSOR TEACHER ASSISTANT: Introduction: A hydrate is a substance that water. It is important to know how much water is in the hydrate because when performing scientific experiments, it is required to know the mass of each substance. If the substance is heated, then the hydrate can lose the water and the water evaporates, which is called an anhydrous substance. Since water is polar and has interactions with ions, hydrates are made in the substance.  How much water the substance can have, depends on the structure of the substance. An example of a hydrate is magnesium sulfate, which the chemical formula is MgSO4. To find the percentage of water in the hydrate, this formula should be used: mass % water of hydration = (g water/ g hydrated salt) x 100%. Procedure: First, set hot plate on maximum heat. Next, you will weigh the mass of the crucible with crucible lid and record data. Weigh out 2.00g-2.50 grams of hydrate; put hydrate into crucible. Using crucible tongs, place crucible with lid and hydrate inside, on top of hot plate for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove lid partially while keeping crucible on hot plate; time for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes is up allow to cool for 5 minutes. After cooling period, record mass of crucible with lid and hydrate and subtract findings from initial mass of empty crucible. For trial 2 place crucible back onto plate......
