1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
For my physics presentation, I need to choose viable and researchable topics. The teacher mentioned that specificity is key; for example, instead of doing the broad topic of sport of football, we should instead do the topic of a how the ball travels. So far, I've acquired 7 topics, but I want at least 15 topics to be safe. Any help?

2. Relevant equations
None for now.

3. The attempt at a solution
Here are my seven topics.
- How a snowboard is able to travel down a hill.
- Physics of a billiard ball and how it hits/travels.
- Physics of a NASCAR tire/car body
- Physics of pole vaulting.
- Physics of shot putting.
- Physics of how a football travels.
- Physics of a water wheel how it spins and how it generates energy

What kind of physics class is this? High School? Freshmen College?

Yes, it would help to know what level of physics you are working at.

Topics for physics presentations.

I'm in first year high school physics. So far, we've covered one-dimensional motion, 2D motion, vectors, forces, laws of motion, work/energy, momentum/collisions, rotational motion, torque, fluid mechanics (buoyant force, floating), heat, pressure, and a little bit of thermodynamics

Thanks. :)

If you want something REALLY easy, I would do an energy source such as solar power. Here the main points are quite simple, but there is alot of room to give more detailed explanation. It is also quite nice in the way that you can offer both advantages and dissadvanatges and make your own suggestions.

Thank you, Mayday. :)

Any other ideas?
