The introduction must cover what has been previously published in the literature about the research topic. It should also give background information on the experimental procedures being used and a brief overview of the overall experimental plan. It should not contain any actual results from the experiment to be performed. Introductions MUST be sufficiently and correctly referenced with relevant primary literature/reviews from peer reviewed scientific journals.
This report introduction must ‘introduce’ 2 main areas
