Help me choose a topic!

  1. May 22, 2012 #1
    Hey guys, I need to make a powerpoint/write a report on any topic related to physics, but i'm having a hard time choosing. This is for my AP Physics class, and I was wondering if you guys could help me choose a topic! What would you be interested to learn/hear about for 15 minutes if you were in my class? lol. It's just a simple 15 minute powerpoint presentation on one topic. Anything come to mind that would be interesting/simple/not too complicated?

    Thanks! :)
