I have been researching topics for a while now and have come up with an idea that I like. My idea is to investigate the effect of the angle of attack of a frisbee on its trajectory/displacement. The topic would include investigating how lift is generated, how torque comes into play, the temperature and pressure of that air. I have seen a few extended essay exemplars and their topics seem much more complicated and advanced. Do you think my idea is suitable for an EE?
For my extended essay I originally wanted too choose Quantum mechanics but I was adviced agaisnt this. The topic I am now considering is the effect of the curve and the length of a curve on the time taken for a ball to get from one position to another. This has already been solved and is known as a Brachistochrone. is this still a valid topic for my extended essay? If not does anyone have any other better recomendations for me? Is this more related too maths? Thanks
