i mean the best steps how in general because in physics its almost the same
some finish the report with results and conclusion others just write conclusion or the beginning ,
in other words does a perfect lab report or not?

It depends on which class this is for (first-year introductory physics? a more advanced class?), and on the policies or customs at your university.

I think the most important thing is good content. The exposition is not so important as long as it makes sense and is systematic. The most important thing is that you put yourself in the mind of the reader and include the necessary details so that they don't sit there scratching their heads when they read it.

When you know everything yourself it is easy to neglect important details that are crucial for the reader... So you must have a well-defined idea of what the reader already knows, i.e. you must know your target audience.

Different universities, and sometimes even different instructors in the same university, expect different things in lab reports. They may expect the same general things (description of procedure, data tables, analysis, conclusions), but they may want different amounts of detail, or arrange things in a different sequence (such as "some finish the report with results and conclusion others just write conclusion or the beginning").

Therefore, it's impossible for us to say what makes a "perfect lab report" in your class at your university. You need to ask your instructor about it.

You may ask to read examples of "perfect" lab reports. You would learn the elements necessary. I would also want to read examples of "not perfect" reports. This would help you avoid mistakes others have made.

Ask your lab instructor how they want their lab reports. It is irrelevant as to what the "perfect" lab report is. All that matters is how your instructor wants it. You could write the "perfect" lab report and if it is not what your instructor wants, you will rightfully lose points.

And you got answers. If you are unsatisfied with them, a well-stated explanation of why they are unsatisfactory (complete with capital letters and proper punctuation) will go a lot farther.

Get the answers correct and write in proper English, unlike how you have done in this thread.
