Hi all,
I'm kind of stuck on what material to do for my materials presentation. It will consist of me producing and presenting a powerpoint presentation on a chosen material and goin indepth about the chosen material and its uses. I must elaborate on the mechanical, electrical and optical properties of the material.
Any help and suggestions will be much appreciated.

I have googled a lot for this, and already have begun researching some materials, such as polycarbonates...but I'm sure there's something more interesting and generally better to do this presentation on.

Oh and I have to be creative and physicsy...so choosing something like a ruby or diamond is out of the question.

Thanks in advance

I did it last year and did Carbon Fibre in tennis rackets. the key to remember is to include lots of physics (young modulus etc...) but relate it to your material and say how it makes the material better for its given application

I did Nickel-Titanium last year, my application was glasses frames. Got 39/40 IIRC.

Brought in samples of how it works.

Let me know if you want any more info.

Not yet. I'm thinking of something along the lines of finding the airspeed over different shaped aerofoils.

I did about contact lenses (hard soft and rgp lenses) their materials, why they're like that, how they work, history of them, a bit about the eye. Got a top mark as well!
