Some Physics Research Ideas

  1. Dec 14, 2004 #1
    I just joined a classs that I didn't even know existed at my school until today. It is called science research, and basically you meet once a week with the class, and it is all independent research, you pick a topic and research it and present to the class and then enter science fairs and other stuff.. Well I have a huge interested in physics, but it is very general and for this class I need to come up with a specific object that can be researched over the course of the year and into next.. Does anyone have ideas on possible subjects to research?

    thanks..

    I am just looking for ideas.. I never said I would choose the first topic some one lists, but if you guys could give me a few ideas it would help me formulate my own area of reasearch.. I am just a little confused as to what to pick..

    Well, it would be nice to know what level of research you are looking for before we just throw a list of topics at you - there are way too many topics for us to list, so if you can narrow things down a bit maybe we can go somewhere.

    Pretty much it can be any reasearch on anything science and it can get as indepth as I want it too..

    I have decided on researching aerogels though. I first am attempting to make them, for those of you who know about them, I can make the alcogel but the supercritical extractions are a bit tricky. Once I have them made though, I am reasearching possible uses for them and also less expensive ways to produce them in large quantities...

    i am currently in my senior year in physics... i'm from the philippines.. a simple topic will do because we only have at most 3 months to do the experiment or the research....
