The final round of the International Physics Olympiad 2014 took place today. The whole section was dedicated to the experimental part of the olympiad. This year, the participants had to solve one problem using various physical equipments provided to them. The olympiad participants spent a total of five grueling hours tackling the experimental problem. However, later on when asked if the duration of the exam was too long, a lot of the participants said that time simply flew by for them while they were immersed in solving their problem. Nonetheless, spending over 5 hours on one tough problem took its toll on most of the participants, who simply looked tired and drained out as they staggered on to the cafeteria to have their lunch.
