Homework Help: Interesting Physics research topics

  1. Feb 27, 2010 #1
    I'm afraid the template for homework help doesn't quite apply here since my problem is the lack of a problem in itself.

    I'm an International Baccalaureate student, and I've decided to do a research topic (about 4000 words) on physics.

    I need help with this. I'm looking for suggestions for research topics (something which should be relatively within the abilities of a high school student), preferably (but not restricted to) thermal physics or electromagnetism.

    Some good extended essays in the past have included:
    How does surface tension vary with temperature?
    Resonant circuits
    The role of electromagnetism in modern music
    The effect of obstacles on wind speed

    I find this an interesting idea. It also has scope for me to conduct a few experiments for study.
