I have a research project for my Physics class and I was thinking of doing it on badminton. I was wondering if people have any ideas what I could do? I was thinking maybe find out who has the fastest smash among my friends or whatever. Or perhaps find the velocity of the bird when it's smashed. Also, any books/websites and places where I could maybe find material on badminton as it relates to Physics?

I think you should get your materials from academic papers (reputable). Go to the university/college and ask for access to their computers. Also, the librarian can assist you in the matter of searching for your materials. So, go to the university library and ask for assistance. Is this an experiment? You may want to do statistics too. This is interesting. What do you have to do in your physics project?

I'd be interested in the formula for the rate of decelaration of the shuttle.

A compison of the flight paths of plastic and feather shuttles maybe? Hypothese on trajectories and prove something realated to the differences between them.
What level is the project at high school/a-level/uni? -- what are you studying for?

I wonder if the measuring device used for bullet velocity could be modified..
Flymordecai - you could also do some research on the relation of high and low tension stringing with the acceleration of the bird.. and help us settle some long winded discussions...

2. Shuttle is light and decrease in speed significantly in a fraction of a sec. Not sure if the radar guns can work effectively or not.

There was a thread a while back with a link to some research that found the terminal velocity of a shuttle.

I may have been thinking of this thread
and this link (which now appears dead)
I'm sure I printed the article out back then.
Just gotta find it now
