For our physics lab we have to come up with an experiment to do to show we know how to gather data and write up a lab and calculate standard deviation and all that fun stuff.
So far we have done things in lab like drop coffee filters and see how long it takes them to fall from different heights, see how much force it takes to drag different weights across a table to determine friction, and measure the speed of a pendulum based on it's height.
We will have to make a poster and presentation, and I want it to be interesting but easy to do.
Does anybody have any suggestions for a fun experiment? E.G. test the melting point of chocolate. Calculate max running speed of my cat...etc.
