Abstract

This report summarizes a biodiesel experiment for upper-class undergraduates in an engineering program. The experiment detailed was designed as part of a lab-based course on alternative energy and energy sources. The experience will teach students several safety precautions as well as proper lab techniques such as how to make good observations and take proper notes. The experiment will then teach students how to write a lab report and analyze the results gathered and how to extrapolate those results to a more meaningful scale.
