Hi, as part of my last PAG I have to complete a research task on a topic of my choice that covers a vast majority of the topics covered in AS and A2, I originally wanted to do materials in aircrafts and how they have changed over time, talk about stresses, weight affecting flight etc. but another one of my class members has already chosen to do stress analysis on aircrafts so thats no longer an option. I am struggling to think of many more ideas that still cover the majority of A-Level content which is why I have turned to tsr for some much needed help!!

Nuclear fusion power stations and the prospect of unlimited power from sea-water.

Deuterium-Tritium fusion, mass-energy equivalence, energy conversion (nuclear, thermal, states of matter, electrical); laser, inductive and microwave (cyclotron resonance) heating; plasma magnetic confinement (Tokomak), materials technology, machine stresses, radioactivity, efficiency, safety, JET, ITER etc.

Enormous subject, enormous energies and an equally large opportunity for yo9ur project.

ITER showing technology and representative scale denoted by chap in purple coat at centre bottom of first image. The second picture shows engineers and scientists standing inside one of the eighteen D-shaped field coils (laid flat) of the Tokomak.
The coils confine the plasma and weigh 310 tonnes each. Together, they produce a magnetic energy of 31 gigajoules.

ITER is only half the size of the final envisioned machine - it's still experimental.

Thank you this seems so interesting I am defiantly going to be doing some more research on this!! Tysm!!
