## The Formal Report

 Course Support Lab Contents

Introductory note

What follows is a detailed description of formal reporting. Each component is set out with a Description, Physlab Specifications and Expected Practice.

• Description gives an overview to the component.
• Physlab Specifications sets out requirements for the Physics lab. Carefully read the Physlab Specifications as these are expected to be followed. Refer back to this section often.
• Expected Practice are general expectations of a good formal report. The Expected Practice notes are for guidance only, and are by no means exhaustive. Therefore these Expected Practice notes cannot be viewed as a 'recipe' to writing a good Formal Report.
