Research Paper format?
So I am taking a physics class and our assignment is to do a research paper on a topic of our choice. The paper is only like 3% of our grade so I did not worry about it. I would ask my physics professor but it is due soon, so i dont want her to know I waited till last minute. She did not give any format or any instruction on how to do the paper. Should I do it in MLA format? or APA with the abstract and all that? Im not sure what is best for research papers. Thanks.

If she does not provide guidance on this, then she may not care about those details. I would go back and make certain that's the case.
However, physics has its own style for citations/references - AIP (American Institute of Physics). This is the format most often used for physics papers. Otherwise, APA is often used for scientific research.

You'll never use MLA in college. It's almost always APA.

APA format is used in scientific writing.
