Calculus project idea?

  1. Jun 10, 2009 #1
    i'm stumped as for a creative idea...i tried gas arbitrage and rate of change of human population, but apparently those won't work.

    if i don't find one, i'll just explain Newton's calculus theories, but does anyone have any ideas of possible topics?

    i thought of another idea...is it possible to calculate the rate of growth/decay of icebergs and approximately how long it'll take for icebergs to melt to increase the world's water level?

    the brachistrone problem, Cycloid, Tautochrone anyone of those would be fun! Especially the Tautochrone and how Christiaan Huygens used for a pendulum clock because of an amazing property associated with the curve!
