Intro: In my group we built a drone that is meant to protect an egg from shattering. The drone has 4 wings, one parachute to combat air resistance, a chamber to hold the egg, padding in and below the chamber. Our primary goal wasn’t only to keep the egg from breaking, but not having any type of damage inflicted on the shell.

Newton’s First Law: Anything at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon an with a greater unbalanced force and will stay in motion at constant a speed and direction until acted upon an unbalanced force. In my project I was the unbalanced: Picking the drone and dropping it off the balcony of heritage hall. Thankfully, we have the law of inertia because once the drone hit the floor it came to a complete stop …show more content…

We can not change gravity so my group and I had to get creative on how to slow down the acceleration of the egg drop. We came up with the idea of a parachute and wings similar to a plane because the more area coverage slower the drone will fall. If the drone were to fall at an acceleration of 0.001 m/s(2) and the mass of 0.4125 it will release a force of 0.0004125.

Newton’s third law: For every action there is an opposite yet equal reaction. We dealt with this law when we dropped the drone from the balcony of heritage hall. We had to take in the fact that once we dropped the drone it will send the energy from the action of the drop towards the floor. While the floor will have an opposite reaction of sending the energy up towards the drone with the same equal force the drone released from the drop.

Momentum & Impulse: Momentum and Impulse are directly related the only difference is that Impulse is change in momentum. As time increased so did velocity and momentum and vice versa. Slowing down the drone’s mass to have a slower acceleration and therefore time decreasing the force that would've been released once the drone collided with the floor safely protecting the secure
