*Problems are assigned from the 7 th edition of Fluid Mechanics textbook by Munson et al.

Lab Report Policy:

Lab handouts will be posted on Blackboard. You need to have access to is during the lab.

Labs are due the session after they are assigned. A 10% per day deduction will occur with no credit after the subsequent session.

Labs will be done in groups of 3-4.

Lab Reports done as an individual will not be accepted.

Groups are required to turn-in a hard copy of reports and email an electronic pdf to abimbolahodonu@boisestate.edu in the format Lab#_LastName1.Initial_ LastName2.Initial _ LastName3.Initial.pdf. Ex: Lab1_Hodonu.S_Ravenhill.L_Wilkerson.D.pdf

Written reports will be in a long report format (An example will be available on Blackboard). They will consist of a concise, but thorough, presentation of the experimental results followed by a detailed discussion of the conclusions drawn from the results. The discussion/analysis will include a rigorous uncertainty analysis with accompanying discussion of the impact of experimental uncertainty on the reliability of the results. Fully annotated supporting documents will be included as appendices.

Attendance and participation are required for all the labs. 5 reports will be required. Additionally, the last lab will not have a lab report.

Lab Quizzes: Problems will be assigned for every lab. Students are required to do assigned problem before coming to lab. Similar questions will be assigned as pop quizzes throughout the course of the semester. In labs where a pop quiz is assigned, the final grade for that lab will be 75% report and 25% quiz grade

Group work Policy: Team work for laboratory experiments is a good example of team work in the workplace. Every team member is responsible to take part in conducting the experiment, data collection and analysis. Each member is expected to make meaningful and equal contributions to the written report. At the end of each report please clearly state the contribution of each team member and make sure all team members agree and sign the report. Complaints on lack of effort will result in an evaluation of individual contributions and potential deduction of points to the individual at fault. However, your report is your own. An incomplete report will be graded as such regardless of students involved.

Make-up Policy: You are eligible for a make-up lab if you miss a scheduled lab because of a death in the immediate family, serious illness, or military service, Students are responsible to inform the instructor of their excused absence as soon as possible and your excused absence must be officially verified and documented in writing to the instructor. If your excuse is acceptable, then you’ll be given a make-up lab during the available lab sections.

Grading: Reports will be weighted equally.
