I've got a lab report to write for a circuits lab dealing with the transient responses of RC, RL, and RCL circuits. I'm fine with the introduction, results and conclusion parts, but I'm not sure what to put for the theory and procedure. The problem is, the formulas for the natural, forced, and complete responses of all 3 kinds of circuits are already derived and laid out in the lab manual with most of the derivations shown. The procedure laid out in the manual is also extremely detailed and covers 8 pages and very clearly explains how to build each circuit and where/how to take measurements. Does it make any sense to basically reproduce all of this and reword it? The derivations are the same ones presented in class, they would be virtual copies. I've emailed the lab instructor asking for more details as to what she is expecting. How do you usually deal with the lab write-ups when so much material is given at the onset? All together, we were given 12 pages of theory and procedure.
