Hi, I'm starting up my first piece of cw soon and I'm not sure if this is a suitable topic? i.e. will this be enough to write 2000 words on it at a good A level standard?
I've done some research on topics that other people have done and I've decided to choose a different topic to the ones I have seen:
The physics of shuttlecocks (in badminton) -> plastics vs. feathered
I've decided to delve into these topics from the AS/A2 syllabus:
- Properties of materials
- Suvat and relating it to a shuttlecock's irregular trajectory (projectile motion) (probably will be brief and it will link into the below)
- I've also decided to talk about the aerodynamics of the shuttlecock and how it flies (the mark scheme basically says it expects at least something outside of the A level syllabus for top marks).
- Is this enough to cover ~2000 words, do you think?
- Is this complex enough? The mark scheme states "The chosen topic requires substantial knowledge of A-level physics to be understood"
- Are there any other topics from the from the A level syllabus I can integrate into this research briefing?

Has a lot of potential IMO - be careful not to over-run 2000 words.

Is How touch screens work ok? so with three different methods- Capacitive, Resistive and Sound Acoustic wave
I don't know whether its too simple, I can't find much maths about it. I'm worried there isn't enough A level physics involved.Last edited by mercedessm; 09-11-2015 at 18:21.

and how are you guys structuring it? What do you need to write in your intro>
