I hate labs!

I had a nice lab this time round, Level Control, but I still hate them. They're evil beasts. I saved the lab I'd been working on as a pdf and was going to upload it here, but the file size is too large at just under 300 kB. :( But if you want to see it let me know xD I'm impressed with how concise I managed to be

What's the nasty task or module or class for you right now? Which one do you hate and dread the most?

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

I was so offended when I read your title...I thought you meant Labrador Retriever dogs! I was like, "OH...I LOVE LABS!" Picture of my "lab" just to make you smile during your icky school lab.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Rebel says all labs are good! I tend to agree. I used to be a high school biology teacher. If you push me I might admit that life science labs are far more interesting than physical science labs.


Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

It's not the experiments that are evil, really. It's the write-up. Last year, labs ran 1415-1705, and then the finished report had to be handed in by 0915 the next morning. This year they run from 0915 to 1205, and have to be in by 1515 the next day; more time, sure, but the labs are much harder and more time-consuming!

We actually had a pretty good experiment this time. We've got a pair of small, clear tanks, linked, each with a level control gauge. A pump drives flow into one tank and there's an outlet pipe on the other. We have various level control gauges and a level control system linked to the pump. We had to study the system's response to an impulse (pouring a load of water into a tank quickly) when uncontrolled, using proportional control, and using proportional-integral control.

I think the best bit was using the graphing machine; it made such pretty graphs showing the response!
