Example Lab Report

The entire example lab report, titled Proper Inflation of a Basketball, is available in two formats. To get the best idea of what a lab report should look like, download the Microsoft Word format document and print it out. Then make your report look like the example! The  HTML format document is viewable on-line, and is as close to a properly formatted lab report as the limitations of the Web will allow.
