Can anyonewe suggest an extended essay project for me in physics

In summary, there are various options for an extended essay project in physics for a grade 11 student, such as modelling a physical pendulum or exploring physical phenomena like rainbows, plasma TVs, hybrid cars, fuel cells, regenerative braking, and LED technology. It is recommended to discuss with a tutor and choose a topic that personally interests the student rather than focusing on a popular topic.

Quite a nice project which can be tailored to your level of knowlage is the modelling of a physical pendulum. However, I would speak to your tutor and see whay they advise.

The list is endless- what physical phenomena do you find interesting? You could write an essay on rainbows, for example. How plasma tv's work- or Ninetendo Wii controllers. Hybrid cars, fuel cells, regenerative braking, LED's... like I said, the list is endless.

My hunch is that you will find the assignment more interesting by digging down into a topic of interest, rather than trying to write about something 'ripped from today's Nature'.
