Does this sound like a good EPQ idea?Watch
Do you think it will make for a good epq
Yh probably. It's a there is lots you could cover but it's not too ambiguous. Plus theres definetly lots of research. An epq should relate to what you want to do in uni/career-wise or a subject your studying so I assume your doing physics
At Lancaster uni theres a module called ''the physical universe'' and the syllabus is broken down below (most unis have similar syllabus in first year(or named something else but has the same stuff in)):
The nature of physics. Experiment and uncertainty. Modelling. Deterministic vs. probabilistic.
Standards and units. Uncertainty and significant figures. Order of magnitude estimates. Dimensional analysis.
Relativity. Frames of reference. Galilean transformation.
Kinematics. Position, displacement, velocity and acceleration vectors. Motion in a straight line with constant acceleration. Motionin 2 dimensions. Projectile, circular motion.
Dynamics. Newton’s laws. Concepts of force and energy. Relations between force, momentum, energy, power. Kinetic and potentialenergy. Conservation of energy and momentum. Collisions, impulse.
Special relativity. Einstein’s postulates. Simultaneity, time dilation, length contraction. Lorentz transformation. Momentum, work and energy.
Especially the last part, Time dilation, length contraction, lorentz factor would probably tie in. And would be a very good talking point at uni interviews as its usually in the Part I of the first year uni courses.
