    Space science
    physics of biological systems

    2.needs to be 1000-1500 words

    Which one do you want to do?

    The first and the third are interconnected, by biomechanics. So I would suggest do that one. How do muscles store their energy (without getting too fussy on the mitochondria etc - this is a physics report not a biology report)? How do they apply forces? How powerful are muscles?

    You can do something on the density of bones in the legs of an animal versus the length of the bone itself. I know those two are directly related. Show that the point at which a bone will snap depends on the density of the bone and the angle at which the force is applied. You can show that fat people with high bone density have an equal fracture risk to skinny people with low bone density.
