A physics student has to design a system that will protect an egg
of mass 0.075 kg during a drop from a height of 2 meters. She first determines how much force the egg shell can withstand before breaking: 6.1 N. Then she uses conservation of energy to determine that the egg will be going 7.7 m/s as it collides with the ground. What is the shortest time the egg can take to stop before breaking?
I'm supposed to be able to explain the steps taken to arrive at my answer and I would really like to.
