Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a first year (Applied) Physics student (in Holland, writing style mistakes preserved :) ), and for quite an easy subject i have to write an approximatley 12 pages long report about an appearance I can physically describe. It doesn't need to be complicated, it doesn't have to be exact. in other words, I don't need to describe in to mathematical perfection; suitable approximations to make it more simple and understandable are 'appreciated'.

I've been thinking a while now for a nice and fun topic, for example the "Powerball". With gyroscopic effects (so just by making circles with your hand while wielding the ball) you can make the weight of the ball feel like it's twice as much.

However, rotational motion and momentum aren't quite my specialty :) so I've decided not to write about this, but I hope I've sketched the kind of direction I want to go.

So, I was hoping for a few ideas, which aren't rocket science, but not too easy aswell.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Calias
