Tuesday - EGG DROP!!
We will stage our contest to see which group managed to create a more efficient apparatis to protect their egg.
REMEMBER: You are to do an informal lab write-up for this. You must explain the physics behind the activity but do not need to write out sections such as materials and procedure. (Be sure you review the concepts of momentum, impulse, inelastic collisions, kinetic energy, and don't forget the difference between force and mass, N vs. kg)
