Are you preparing for the tournament but still have some questions about what you will need to do during those Physics Fights? Some commonly asked questions and their answers can be found here.
An important aspect of the presentation is to convince the other teams and the jury that you did your own experimental work. It is allowed to bring along devices you have been using for your investigation, but it is also perfectly fine to just show videos/photographs instead. A good solution should also show a good understanding of the relevant theory. If possible, at least one relevant parameter should be investigated quantitatively and compared to the theoretical prediction.
- summary of the presentation and critical feedback (strengths and weaknesses)
- discussion between Opponent and Reporter
- summary of discussion
The Opponent is expected to discuss the solution presented by the Reporter and not to focus too much on other aspects of the problem. In a good discussion, the Opponent manages to help the Reporter further develop the solution.
You can find out about the problem you will have to oppose once the Fight Plan is published.
