    We've just been given our last coursework to do, and it involves choosing a subject ourselves that we don't know much about and doing a 2000 word essay on it.
    I've chosen my topic, ''The physics of natural disasters- specifically earthquakes, lightning strikes and meteor impacts''. The only problem is that I don't know any way to put figures into physicsy equations to explain.
    I thought I could explain waves for earthquakes, electricity and capacitances for lightning and GPE for meteors, but I'm drawing a blank.
    Any help would be appreciated, or if you think there is an easier topic I should be doing.

    Seems like your theme is the dangers of potential energy. I don't know what boxes you need to tick with this assignment. Why's it so hard to put numbers on it? You might just need to research some more specialised literature.
