Homework Help: Physics electric kettle experiments?

  1. May 1, 2012 #1
    Physics "electric kettle" experiments?

    Alrighty all you geniuses. I have a physics assignment that I need to actually start, I've been away from school for the past 2 weeks so I haven't really heard much about what is actually required; but going by my task sheet

    "Your task is to identify, research and then validate by experiment the quantifiable physics of an electric kettle. You must design, plan and perform a series of experiments that verify what you have identified and demonstrate the physical principles involved. You should also analyse the efficiency of the kettle and identify possible improvements in the design of your chosen electric kettle."

    I have little to no ideas of what I could experiment on, as I have said, I've been away a fair amount and haven't even learnt much on the whole concept.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
