Amanda Runey PHY111 Segvich 25 March 2008 Egg Drop Lab Introduction An impulse is used to stop an object that is moving. In this experiment we sought to see what type of crafts could create an impulse that would stop the craft after falling from the top of the stairwell, but also keep a raw egg from breaking within the craft. Another objective was to get the craft to fall to the ground the fastest without the egg breaking. Procedures/Methods Each person in the class was to make a craft for a raw egg to keep it from breaking after falling down the stairwell. The crafts could not have a parachute or wings. It also could not be a plain box or use a liquid. We also could not use a substance to make the shell of the egg harder, or use a hardboiled egg. The egg was dropped from the very top of the stairs at the southeast corner of the LA building on Washtenaw’s campus. The time it took was recorded from the time the craft was released to when it hit the ground. Data
