    Why not Max Planck? One of the founders of QUantum Theory, which in itself is probably some of the most exciting and crazy physics there is! Should be plenty to talk about with him
    Admittedly I don't know a whole lot about the two but I think Tesla has made a bigger difference to everyday people's lives.

    How many miles do you have to travel to get to sixth form?

    I have to travel 10+ Miles.

    That's very debatable! Without Quantum Theory there would be no transistors, so no computers, radios, TVs etc!

    I know without electricity that wouldn't have been able to happen, but without Planck we couldn't have all these mobiles and things, no 'instant' communication or anything!

    Hopefully my results will inspire me
    Haha hopefully mine will make me start physics AS :lol: although if I get a B I won't do it at AS :unimpressed:

    Tesla's work allowed that though. Planck may have had a bigger contribution but it wouldn't have happed if it weren't for Tesla. (Again, if I'm talking **** just ignore me. I don't know the full facts.)

    Also I was just thinking about someone different, that nobody else will choose. Tesla is still pretty well known so there is a much larger chance someone else in you class will pick him?

    If you did triple science then AS Physics won't be too bad. If you have a B at GCSE then an A at AS that shows great progress to Universities.

    Nah I totally understand where you're coming from, without Tesla there wouldn't be the AC for things to work on. However if we didn't have Quantum theory then there would be a lot less use of electricity in our lives, seeing as most people spend their time on phones and watching TV now days!

    Let's just agree that they are both fantastic and have both immensely changed billions of lives.

    Oh no wasn't trying to argue or anything, I was just thinking of someone that you could do that would be completely different to the rest of your class and make you stand out!

    Well just in case, a few others you could consider that are equally influential are:

    Galileo (Jupiter's moons, championing the Copernican theory vs the church, telescope improvements etc.)

    Faraday (magnetic field generating an electric current)

    Kepler (for his laws on planetary motion)

    Maxwell (discovering light was EM radiation, and showing that there was other types of radiation, electromagnetic equations etc.)

    Sorry that's all I can think of off the top of my head!

    Okay thanks. I never did homework in lower school but I want to write a cracking essay to make a good impression on my Physics teacher.

    Haha yeah good impressions are good especially first day in sixth form! I'm sure if nobody else does whoever you pick then that will be even better!
