I would like to work on an in-depth physics project

  1. Jul 15, 2013 #1
    Hi! I'm new here. I would like to know if I could get ideas regarding in depth physics project. I have a couple of ideas for topics, but I am not sure what to do regards them. My topics are: Tesla Coils, Superconductors, and CO2 scrubbing. For the CO2 scrubbing project, I am trying to find a regenerative scrubber I can use. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

    I know Grignard reagents (RMgX) react with CO2 to form carboxylates. I'm not sure if this is an economically feasible CO2 scrubbing solution though.
    You could set up an experiment to bring a gaseous solution containing a known amount of CO2 through an impinger containing a grignard reagent dissolved in dry ether, then find a way to measure the CO2 leaving the impinger to see how efficient the process is.
