How do you write the ideal lab report? When I write one, I always mess up in some point :grumpy:

For example, should you write a lab report in first person or third person perspective, past or current tense?

My lab report format for your reference:
Title
Date
Objective
Theory
Assumptions
Apparatus
Procedure
Precaution
Results: Measurements/Readings, Graphs & equations, Analysis
Conclusion
Discussion: Error analysis(sources of error & how would the results be affected), Suggestions for improvement, Limitations of the experiment, Possible further investigation

Whenever you are describing what have been done in the experiment, use past tense, eg procedure, measurements, sources of error.
Lab reports should always be written in third person persective.
