In a lab report, the problem is the main research question, or the reason for conducting the lab test, according to North Carolina State University. The analysis reviews, draws inferences and supports conclusions from the lab test data, according to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
A lab report introduction describes the problem, explains North Carolina State University. The analysis includes charts, tables or graphs to illustrate calculations and explain uncertainties before ending the report with the discussion section, notes the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A long report may end with a brief summary in a conclusion section, notes North Carolina State University.
