    Hi
    I am doing an IA on physics. So basially i want to measure the time it takes for a ball to stop bouncing once dropped from different heights. I think i need sth more creative to add to this cos its too common.
    I am in desperate need for help! Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!!!

    Hi, can you elaborate a bit further on what you are trying to do? At the moment all that I can advise is to measure it with a stopwatch and also you'll need some sort of method for dropping the ball so that it is (A) controlled for variables like spin and (b) simultaneous to the stopwatch starting

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply
    What you said is basically what I was planning to do but it feels like it's too simple.
    What more could I add to make it more creative and fun...?
    Should I try to use different surface or sth...
    OMG what should I do...

    Ok, before I start making suggestions, would help if you told me what an IA is and how it is assessed. It might be that it is fine, or we could come up with something more interesting.
