Egg Drop Lab Report

Introduction The objective of this project was to create a structure that will protect a raw egg and prevent it from breaking when being dropped from a minimum height of two meters. A decent hypothesis or prediction one could develop before any experimental trials would be as follows. The structure that provides the longest duration of impact between the falling egg the ground will provide the desired results of an undamaged egg. The duration of time in which the ground applies a force to the egg carrying structure is referred to as impulse. The longer the span of impact time, the more mild the force acting upon …show more content…

All the failing designs possessed at least one of the mentioned flaws.


After viewing the trials of drops, multiple flaws were highlighted in many designs of the lab participants. One flaw that could have been improved on was more even distribution of straws surrounding the egg compartment, rather than overbuilding on one side. This could be solved by building symmetrically. Another noticeable flaw was the reckless flight patterns of designs
