Physics Extended Essay Experiment

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I am doing my extended essay in physics, and I want to do it on how the speed of a soccer ball affect its projectile motion for this experiment I will have to keep a constant speed while I kick the soccer ball. How do I keep a constant speed?

Also, does doing experiments on simulation affect our grades?

It would be great if you could help me out.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. please reply ASAP!

I think it's a good topic if you are focusing on effects of friction in translational and rotational motions. For example football curve balls or certain trick shots. You need to be creative on how you can collect data.

OKay That is awesome but how do I ensure to have constant speed?

I was thinking maybe you can use secondary data. The details of the experiment you should figure out on your own. Also you can consider tennis ball shooter, but friction in tennis is much less prominent.

I will look at that, where could I take secondary data from?

You should plan the details of your investigation yourself. We can give you possible ways to explore your topic but not tell you exactly what to do.
