Physics individual investigation

  1. Jun 17, 2013 #1
    °Hey guys, so I'm in year 12 and ive got to do an individual investigation about anything I want for my Welsh Bac qualification. Naturally as I wish to study Physics at Uni, I want to do my individual investigation on something physics related.

    The difficult thing is that i need to compare my subject with something in Wales (uk) to another country.

    im intrested in:
    °travelling at the speed of light, electrons needing 14B eV to do it etc
    °Expansion of the universe, how fast, etc
    °invisible plantes etc
    °alot of space stuff really

    But i need it to be relatable to countries on earth waaa

    I'd be really greatful for any advice on what i could investigate, thats anything to do with physics thanks.

    If there were invisible plants in Wales and Belgium, how could you tell?

    The gravity you experience in Wales, vs. in other countries. Which counties have more vs. less gravity than Wales?

    Renewable energy topics:
    ** Solar insolation versus other countries,
    ** Wind power available versus other countries
    ** Geothermal energy sources versus other countries
    ** Hydroelectric energy available versus other countries

    Hint -- you can use Google Images to search for things like European Energy Maps, etc.

    You could also research WiFi coverage or other high-tech connectivity issues in your country versus other countries....
