so as part of my IB diploma i have to write an extended essay consisting of whatever i want.

So i chose science as my topic and subtopic of physics but i'm not sure what i want to do it on yet, so ive come here for ideas.

so for some rules:

must be an original experiment, must be an experiment, not theoretical.
has to have some quantitative data, ie i couldnt bolt on one set of blades for my heli and say it flew better than another, it has to be measurable.

basically other than that it is undecided, just anything related to physics.

i was thinking something like efficiencies of brushless motors at different windings or something similar but so far i havent put much thought into it.

Any ideas?

personal projects for us were gr 9 (i remember procrastinating till about 5am the morning before and not getting any sleep before presenting that) then a presentation in gr 10 (was only up till about 3am working on this one) and then the essay and a bunch of other annoying stuff in 11&12. i can definitely say im not looking forward to it but i cant argue with 2 diplomas, so i figured i may as well do one thing i have choice on in somethign i like.

ps. i did my pp on king ludwig of bavaria (we had to choose a country with a history). the teachers didnt look for presentation as much as knowledge and content. mine was hap hazardly glued together but because i had only wrote it down a few hours before i knew it all to talk about it without looking at the paper.

Well, since money is probably limited so you can't go out and by a 'G' force measurennt instrumentation........ Maybe build a stick model frame and document the different damages from crashing at different heights.
Let us know in this thread what you end up doing.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
