Overview of Qualitative Research

Like Gibbs (2007) I want to be guided by the research goal developing theoretical outcomes Gibbs (2007), covering intrinsic participant cognitions, and clearly explaining any limitations (Gibbs et al, 2007). I have decided…

The Four Types of Research Methods

Research that is carried out for an issue that has not clearly been identified. An example would be a case study because exploratory research involves interviews and focus groups.

Effect of Force and Mass on Acceleration

Abstract: In this lab there were two principals investigated. The first was the relationship between applied force and acceleration. The second was the relationship between mass and acceleration. To study these two relationships, my partners and I used a dynamic cart with added mass on it. This cart was then attached to a pulley system on a “frictionless track” where it was pulled by a string bearing mass over the edge of a table. In the first relationship tested, applied…
