## How do you make an egg drop without breaking it?

There are three basic ways to increase the likelihood of safely dropping an egg:

1. Slow down the descent speed.
2. Cushion the egg so that something other than the egg itself absorbs the impact of landing.
3. Orient the egg so that it lands on the strongest part of the shell.

### How does Newton’s third law apply to an egg drop?

Newton’s third law states that for every action there is a opposite and equal reaction. Our egg drop project demonstrates this by there being a simultaneous reaction but in the opposite direction, so when you drop the egg and it lands, an upward force will act on it.

#### How do you drop an egg from height?

Possibilities include balloons, popcorn, packing peanuts, wads of paper or cereal puffs. Encase the egg in any of these inside a paper or plastic bag, a sock or a stocking.

### What is the purpose of the egg drop lab experiment?

Purpose – This experiment is designed to review these forces by completing an egg drop lab. c. Hypothesis – If an egg is dropped from a height of 5.3 meters and the egg shell must not crack, then the egg must be well protected from outside forces acting on it. d.
