So far I have taken a classical mechanics course and have a calculus 2 background; I will be taking multivariable/vector calculus in the fall along with it although it is not required of the course itself.

Last semester i wrote a paper on Special Relativity so I was thinking of a possible topic as being Einstein's work which lead him to his discoveries of Relativity. Another topic I am considering is "what is static electricity" which I found was actually a large current research area according to a current magazine I read; the article spoke about how scientists currently only understand how static electricity effects matter but not exactly what it is or how its created (if I am not mistaken)

My main issue is that I do not know if these topics are too advanced considering my current mathematical background (again, up calculus 2 and classical mechanics as well as starting vector calculus concurrently in the fall). Do you suggest that these topics will be okay given my background or do you suggest something else?

Also, what I think would be interesting and what I would most like to discover is E&M's implications in gravity although I am not sure how advanced mathematically the topic would be.
