    am really stuck of what i can do for my physics coursework, basically, we can do whatever we want, just that it has to be about physics... but it cannot be too easy, so anyone, PLEASE give me some ideas... :confused:

    THANKS A LOT!!! *hugz*

    Cool......Physics...my favourite subject...this is what we've done:

    To investigate some of the factors that affect the bending of a beam

    In this practical you effectively, just put some load on the beam at certain places and observe the change in depression.

    The main factors that u can change are:

    *thickness of the beam
    *width of the beam
    *mass or load applied

    You can change loads of factors but I would only choose the above, cos they're the easiest. So, effectively, u just get a metre ruler fix it on two supports, one at either end of the beam, and put some load on it, and measure the depression of beam from the horizontal.

    Alternatively, you can have one support at only one end of the beam, and have the other end hanging over the edge of a table or something, than put load at this end and measure teh depression.

    Easy practical, but gets you all the marks.(provided you do some work lol)
