Physics IA SHM

Recommended Posts

Hi

this is my first posting, however I have just been given my IA topic; Simple Harmonic Motion,

I am currently considering using a tank of water and creating a simple harmonic wavefront and measuring the correlation between SHM and energy in a wave, any advice would be great.

I was looking at that, but unfortunatly our teacher says we can only have one person doing one type of experiment, two other people are looking at pendulums, one is looking at a mass on a spring and another at a marble on a track with parabolic curve

i am currently thinking about a test tube floating in water, this SHM and then moving the tube closer to or further away from the source of disturbance

any hints / ideas?

sorry I hate waves so I have no idea on that.

what about varying the heights of dropping a ball and the time it takes to bounce X times? bouncing ball is also SHM, no?
