Hi guys, This might seem like a rather ambiguous question but I have a physics project on motion that I need to do. It is rather a big project accounting for a weighting of around 15-17% of my total year mark.

Now heres the thing I need to find something to investigate/experiment with regarding motion but, I am stuck on Motion investigation Ideas. So If anyone could help me in choosing an idea related to motion for my project it will be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you

-SydDF I'm β than you. I catch fish with my Ʃ

P.S. If I have posted in the wrong sub forum, sorry for an inconvenience.

Edit: An experiment of medium difficulty would suffice

Hmm thank you for that but that would be rather too simple for my teacher. Besides my friend in class alredy did a similiar project to friction but instead used viscosity and density of liquids acting on a block, moving down a slope.

Any other suggestions? ^_^ (At the moment i can't really think of any motion related material because I just finished the heating and cooling topic for this term)

Can you build a perpetual motion machine?

You mean something that endlessly continues motion without loss of energy? Such as a newtons cradle?

Yes thankyou hayley I am looking into this idea currently right now. Thank you so much.

Reminds of that simpsons episode where Homer is too lazy to press the Y key on his keyboard and uses that drinking birdy thingy.

Anyways if you or anyone still have more ideas, dont be afraid to spill them here.
