    1. You could measure the acceleration due to gravity using a pendulum, that's what I had to do for my A2 coursework. Then using the value that you get for 'g', you can expand the work, and calculate the mass of the earth.
    2. Calculate the resistivity of different types of wire (That was my AS one).
    3. Do some work on diffration gratings, investigating minima and maxima.
