Homework Help: Physics experiment on water and magnet

  1. Jan 18, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    So, i am supposed to do research paper on whatever topic of around 4000 words. So, i chose physics as my subject of interest. So, for my research i want to do an experiment which i will be dropping a small but powerful magnet on water and measure the height of the water which 'jumps' up due to reaction force when the magnet hits the water.


    2. Relevant equations
    So, i am still thinking what variable should i use for the experiment? i can vary the temperature of the water, or pass through electric current to the water or etc. So, what do you think would be the best variable can i use in order to get a nice graph to plot and can be analysed on??? Suggestions are much appreciated..


    3. The attempt at a solution


    Thanks
