Experiment Ideas

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone, I'm a grade 12 high school student taking Physics and I'm looking into some ideas for my final project.

The idea is to come up with a physics lab/experiment that investigates a relationship (that can be graphed) between two variables or the determination of a physical constant.
it can to relate to either kinematics, light, sound, waves, energy, or a mix of any.

I've thought of some generic things like launching projectiles and so forth, but i just want to get some other ideas to think about.

Shouldn't be to crazy, as i don't have a lot of materials, but just some original ideas.

Thanks in advance for feedback!

A bog standard pendulum experiment. Very easy and reaps the marks.

Fun can always be had with magnets, as well. Maybe a small model maglev train? (Not necessarily moving along the rail, but demonstrating the lift principle.)

I'm not allowed to post links yet, however there is a website I use which features a wealth of experiements which you can find if you google "practical physics . org". I expect you could find some inspiration on there.
