    Did mine, nothing worth discussing, though, except that I'd warn you not to do anything with light unless you have really good equipment. Experiment basically didn't work.

    Light absorption as a function of particle size and concentration of clay in water (turbidity, I guess..)

    They tend to reward you for being a good essay writer. Only reason I got a B.

    Do you have a topic yet?

    hey, just finished mine today!! had the same kind of problem with my teacher though... I'm sure you'll be fine, just present it all well and write a good abstract. the physics is only /12 whilst general stuff is worth 24 marks!
    Gd luck everyone, hope we don't all fail...

    A lot of people seem to be doing tennis racquets, though (including one at my school in my year) so be careful; the examiners might be getting bored :P

    one way is undoubtedly an accelerometer (small device that measures how fast it's being accelerated)

    not really, since it is testing the effects of the sweet spots and the surrounding areas of the racket for their effectivness

    How are you going to make sure the force apply is constant ?
    I mean you throw the ball and hit it to get the rebounding height, isn't it ?
