The typical outline to write up a chemistry lab report is as follows: the first piece of information that is needed to be written within the lab report is the aim, or abstract, or proposal of a lab experiment. This is similar to an introuction of a paper. This is dependent upon the teacher or professor’s specifications as to what to call it, but the first part of any lab report is usually the goal of the report. The second part of a lab report that needs to be written is the procedure and materials used in order to complete the lab. This part of the lab report is usually found within the laboratory manual. The third part of a lab report is the results obtained from the experiment. The fourth part of the lab report that needs to be written is the discussion. In the discussion, the student generally answers any questions that the laboratory instructor provides and also discusses anything that may have come up during the experiment. The last thing that needs to be written is the conclusion to the lab report.
