Physics Project Ideas
Physics projects for science and engineering students discuss ideas related to our day to day life and some of them have implemented successfully in various science fair competitions around the world. As we all know that Physics is involved in every activity we do, from a walk to talk, from electronics to robotics and from computer science to aeronautics and finding the idea on this topic is going to be very easy. So, In this post, we will discuss some of the projects based on this field
Pedal Powered Water filter: This project works on the concept of evaporation and condensation of water but on a very small scale with the use of human energy.

Solar Powered Bicycle: Run your bicycle on solar power
Windmill water pump: They are not new for us but still it would be interesting for us to build one on our own.

Build Your Own Maglev
Maglev (MAG: is used for magnetic, LEV: is used for Levitation) is a train that uses the power of magnets instead of fuel with its highest recorded speed is 581 km/hr.

Compare Strength of Wood using three different Paint's.

Is there any relation between paint and strength? Can we increase the strength of our furniture just by painting it? This project would help you find that out.

Fabrication of cam-less engine: A cam-less is a kind of free valve engine that uses electromagnetic, hydraulic, or pneumatic actuators to open the poppet valves instead. Actuators can be used to both open and close the valves, or an actuator opens the valve while a spring closes it.

Trebuchet or Catapult: 

What is Trebuchet?
In most simple words, we can say that trebuchet is a machine build to throw an object to a distance. In our post, Catapult Project, we saw how we can build one for us.

It is based on the simple concept of storing potential energy and when it requires to convert it into kinetic energy. So, to build good trebuchet we need to store as much energy and use it with bare minimum losses.

How Trebuchet works?

Pelton Wheel:
Pelton WheelThe Pelton wheel is an impulse turbine that is among the most efficient types of water turbines. The Pelton wheel extracts energy from the impulse (momentum) of moving water, as opposed to its weight like a traditional overshot water wheel. Older turbines used water power inefficiently. The shape of the Pelton turbine made it more efficient.
