    Hi.
    Soon, for physics, i will have to do an oral presentation based on a topic of my choice, related to physics. Im really stuck about what topic i should choose, so, if anyone has any ideas, could you please post some interesting topics that i could maybe use. I do understand that what i find interesting will be different to what others find interesting, but atleast something is better than nothing :redface:

    So yea, all suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    PS. I am currently studying year 11 physics (Australia), so nothing to complex :wink:

    You ought to pick something that interests and enthuses you. It's then fun rather than work, and so much easier to deliver well. Only you know what. If it were me I'd be talking about energy.

    Yea. In my first post i did say that different people find different things interesting :) Im just doing this for ideas, because at the moment, i have no idea at all. I definitly will end up picking something i am personally interested in, but im not quite sure what that will be yet :)

    Look on How Stuff Works. They give a rather good description.

    Yea. As soon as you suggested that, i thought about using the "how stuff works" search engine, for the GPS system, and also to find ideas of other things i might talk about :)

    I find the whole saga of solar neutrinos fascinating. Great science. From the initial calculations to the initial experiments that showed a big discrepancy (WTH?), to the bigger and better experiments that verified the discrepency (Yikes!), to the final experiments that gave the clues to revise the theory and make it all match up. And all in my lifetime -- great stuff.

    Here's the Nova TV episode that chronicles the saga:

    How about something to do with time travel? you could explain whether it is possible/impossible according to the facts which you will find.
    this link may help you http://people.howstuffworks.com/time.htm

    Why suggest vaporware, pavadrin? You're not being helpful. His report is supposed to be about Physics. Please confine time travel discussions to the Skepticism and Debunking forum. :mad:
