Triple award Physics Risk Assessment. watch

    • Thread Starter

    My class recently did an experiment for our physics coursework where we measured the distance travelled by a ball in the air after rolling it down a ramp. The ball landed into a pit of sand to measure the distance it had travelled. I have identified risks of sand in eye + sand in cuts + tripping over chairs & bags. But i can't think of any other risks? We used a retort, clamp & boss to attach a small track, we used a 8.62g metallic ball, and the small box of sand. Can anyone think of any other risks that could have been caused from this investigation??
