It can be a topic - but it has to be specific, not just particle physics or thermodynamics. I need a sub topic I guess. For example particle accelerators ( e.g of a sub topic of particle physics ). Or it can be a specific question that requires me to research in order to answer. I already have a few ideas but this is for an in-school competition that I would like to win for my own personal satisfaction. Long story short, in need of something ✨unique✨, ✨different ✨, ✨never seen before material✨ type beat.

All answers will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

P.s. I’m not making my decision until Sunday-ish,so please keep commenting on this thread

Quarks?
I did a presentation on bottom quarks and there’s some recent (2018) experiments in the large hadron collider that show Higgs bosons can decay into bottom quarks
Idk what you think of that

I think that would be a great topic to research tbh. Im gonna look into it and see if it interests me. I want to specialise in particle physics in the future so this would be a fun topic to research outside of the essay any way. Thanks for the reply.

That’s interesting, I’ve just started watching a YouTube video explaining what it is. Thank you for the response.

Can turbulence ever be theorized into a governing equation?

Their is a $1m prize for the numerical solution to this...

I really like the time dilation and Newtonian fluid ideas. Thank you for you response

That’s an interesting question, I obviously can’t answer it but it would be fun to research. Thank you for your response.

Yes, I didnt expect you to derive the solution for the essay just an idea for a topic.
(I think) its an interesting topic as you can discuss the physics of fluid mechanics & turbulence but also the difficulty of forming a definitive mathematical representation. The use of CFD and turbulence model approximations.

It really is an interesting topic and it’s one of my favourite ideas at the moment. Thanks for that, I’m gonna look it up and go from there.

Thank you to everyone who commented, I really appreciate all the responses. I researched all of them but I was drawn to neutrino oscillations overall, so I think I’m gonna write my essay on that. Thanks for that Sinnoh.
