This abstract is pretty good. Obviously it's an urgent issue that the rest of the report is missing!

Please see Roberto's rough draft for my thoughts on your further data.

This lab report will investigate the Rydberg constant, a physical constant which relates to the wavelengths of photons emitted from atoms in an excited state. This will be done through spectroscopy. Specifically, we will be measuring the wavelength of photons emitted by Hydrogen and Deuterium gas observed as spectral lines isolated through diffraction. Although this can be seen as a dated method compared to modern science, the results obtained in this lab were quite acceptable. The reduced mass Rydberg constant for Hydrogen and Deuterium were found to be Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://api.formulasearchengine.com/v1/":): {\displaystyle 1.0977(7)*10^7m^{-1}} and Failed to parse (MathML with SVG or PNG fallback (recommended for modern browsers and accessibility tools): Invalid response ("Math extension cannot connect to Restbase.") from server "https://api.formulasearchengine.com/v1/":): {\displaystyle 1.0990(2)*10^7m^{-1}} , respectively.
