Year 9 Student Research Project (SRP)
Physics in action

In every Olympic event at the 2012 London Olympics all athletes have incorporated the study of Physics in their preparation. Forces and motion are an integral part of each event. Technique, equipment, clothing, direction and speed are all based on Physics concepts. Forces, both helpful and unhelpful, are closely considered and influence technique, equipment and clothing used for each event.
Your task is to choose a sport that you either participate in and/or have an interest in as an individual project. Research the Physics involved in your chosen sport. Then select a Physics concept related to that sport that you could test quantitatively. Try and select something that you can test outside of the classroom and with equipment that you might have at home. Your teacher will guide you in the research and preparation for this assignment. The experiment itself and the report and presentation are to be completed at home.
The SRP will be prepared in several steps: A. Preparation (1 week in class)
Week 7/8 1. Submission of topic area (lesson 2) 2. Preparation of research (bibliography prepared) 3. Preparation of the experimental methodology 4.
