I was thinking of doing something do to with music - maybe related to drums.

No idea what to experiment though , any advice or ideas?

What everyone else doing?

I did aerofoils for mine, was rubbish, had to make up all the results, don't do that.

Pick something easy like measuring viscosity of a fluid, or some kind of mechanics based project (projectile motion kind of thing).

Does anyone have any possible ideas for an experiment to do with drums?

What determines the sound of a certain instrument? is one option we were given

like the open and closed end wind instruments we looked at in AS but a more difficult instrument like a drum would be A2...


i have no idea what to do for mine.
I think the same but of a triangle or something

it all sounds so boring.
i may just look at solar cells. ha

viscosity is a good/easy one but i think its hard to relate to A2 :/

i've just completed my experiments for the PSA5 Coursework on solar cells! I didn't know so many other people were doing this lol.

I've investigated intensity, surface area, distance, wavelength although I think you only need to investigate 2 variables :redface:. I seem to have got a quadratice for intensity, an exponential relationship for distance, haven't looked at wavelength yet, and a linear relationship for surface area.
