Title: Egg Drop Assignment (01/19/10)
Description: We are going to be conducting an Egg Drop project, identify at least 5 examples of good egg drop enclosures that you can find on the internet. Post a link and give an explanation for why you think these enclosures would provide good protection to the egg.

Article posted January 20, 2010 at 03:27 AM GMT0 • comment • Reads 3794

There are many different ways to enclose an egg for when you drop it without the risk of it breaking. One way is to get a balloon full of water and put the egg in it. You can also get a basket full of something soft and connect a parashoot to the blanket. Another example is just wrapping the egg with soft material until it is fully protected. You can also attach a balloon to it so that it can float down. You can last but not least attach it to something soft so that it wont break and attach something to allow it to float until it hits the floor. These are five different egg enclosures.

Found this website.



it was helpfulllll(:



 



http://www.angelfire.com/md/mccscience/eggdrop.html



 



The point is to creat a wayy to protect the egg from cracking.



 



 



:)


with these ideas, maybe it will help youuu.!

This one is a good idea because the cups provide a cushion for the egg.



http://www.suburbankamikaze.com/.a/6a00d8341c5e7353ef0105349adff8970b-250wi

This one is good because it doesn't allow the egg to move a lot.



http://www.niemworks.com/else/im/eggdrop/mike.jpg

this one is great because it provides air resistance.



http://www.schillereng.com/Solid%20Modeling.htm

This one provides a strong outer shell to protect the egg.

This one is great because it reduces air resistance.

The design of the example has two layers to protect the egg. A soft and a strong outer part.



 



http://outreach.phys.vt.edu/projects/eggdrop.html



The balloon will reduce the speed that the egg is dropping.



 



http://masseynews-iis.massey.ac.nz/newsletters/coca-news/coca-news-issue-1.html



The wings will slow the fall object and allow it to fall gently.



 



http://starsapphire.wordpress.com/2007/06/18/the-great-egg-drop/



The egg doesn’t have much room to move around while it’s falling.



 



http://www.flickr.com/photos/julieleung/389653540/



With this container the egg will be completely covered by form.

The design looks like there is enough cushion to withstand the fall. The straws would act like springs for a softer landing.

For the egg drop for sure you'll need straws. The straws support the egg, and can keep it in place. Cotton ball can soften the impact the egg gets from hitting the floor, and I think A balloon will help also. The balloon descending slowly will get the egg to the ground safely and unharmed. Sort of like in this picture.

And other designs I would like to try are like this...

They have some pretty good ideas to put an egg in for protection. I think they're creative and can work for the egg not to splat on the floor.

1. Coffee Can Filled with Cotton Balls

2. Milk Carton filled with Marshmallows

3. Shoe Box Filled with Bubble Wrap

4. Box Filled with Straws

5. Box Filled with Cheerios



These Enclosures would do a good job to protect the egg because the container would take the impact and the stuffing would protect the egg.

1)http://blog.makezine.com/eggdropsmall3.jpg



Put peanut butter around the egg. the peanut butter is thick and wouldnt let the egg break when being dropped.



2)[LINK]



make a base made out of straws for the egg, cover the egg with a paper cup and attatch a balloon to the top. then when being dropped, it will float.



3)[LINK]



tie a parachute to the egg so it will gently fall to the ground.



4)[LINK]



make a base out of nothing but straws and tape the egg to the base



5)[LINK]



cover the egg completley in styrofoam and tape it closed. therefore it has no problem landing.



orrrr we can just get and egg and cover it with a pancake a tape right??

http://outreach.phys.vt.edu/projects/eggdrop1.JPG  the balloon will help increase drop time, allowing the egg to slow down.



http://www.st-johns.org.uk/sciclubweb/eggdropyr4/eggdrop.jpg the plastic bag will give the huevo a parachute like thing to slow the egg, and it can land safely.



http://communications.uwo.ca/com/media/images/WesternNews2008/PG3_Ivey_egg_drop.jpgthe papel will make a parachute thingy that slows down the fall, and the crash impact will be less force.



http://eng.odu.edu/images/openhouse/eggdrop.jpg this kiddo made a rainbow parachute like thing, and i think it will be successful because the leprechauns at the end will help save the egg.



http://www.uiowa.edu/~fyi/issues/issues2001_v39/11162001/images/400/E-11-01-2314-02-ts.jpg the lady had two things to slow things don, a papel parachute and a bolsito(plastic baggie). it can work, i bet.

A way to restrain the egg. It does no good if the egg keeps moving and breaks against the side of the container. Use the padding itself, or try tape, rubber bands, a sling made from old pantyhose, or your own idea.



 





Bubble wrap, one possible way to cushion the fall.

  • Containment. Tape, string, glue, a buckle. Do you need to be able to open and close the container? You don't want your egg falling out.

There are many ways of protecting an egg from cracking when dropped from 5 meters...for example you can cushion the egg with foam, bubble wrap, paper, straws, and even string to make a contraption of a "parachute."http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081204215356AA0jbMp.. So whenever you conduct thie experiment try out these different ways to protecting your egg1

1.)http://en.allexperts.com/q/Physics-1358/egg-drop-experiment.htm this website is a good example because a parachute is used to protect the egg from breaking when landing.

2.)This website is also a good website because it shows a really good picture of an egg enclosure.

[LINK]

3.)This other website is a good example because the egg is protected by either paper or styrofoam.[LINK]

4.)This website is an example of a good enclosure because it shows a picture and the materials they used. [LINK]

5.)This is another website that is an example for the egg drop enclosure because it also shows a picture of the building and it has links to videos of the expirament.

[LINK] well as the one from the above just in a bigger version..



[LINK] is another good enclosure because it is completely surrounded by the straws sticking out....



[LINK] couldnt find anymore enclosures that used straws so i picked this one because thje egg is in the middle gaurded but nigger size stickes so it wont hit the ground..



[LINK] one as wel except they used sticks and rubber bands and alot of tape to surround the egg and hung from the top of the stick...

[LINK] this one is crazy i would of never thought about doing this but it look like it works good the pop corn stops the hit from getting to the egg



[LINK] thiss looks cool it has like a parashoot it heips the hit to be soft so the egg wont crack

Egg drop . This egg drop would work well cause the straws would make a soft landing and the layer that protects the egg is really soft.



2nd egg drop. This egg drop project would work cause the spirals would reduce the time it will fall thus not hitting the ground with a hard impact.



3rd egg drop. This one would definately work the wing shaped thingso n the top will rotating thus making it glide down to the floor.



4th egg drop the bag full of air would be a major parachute reducing the time it will take to hit the ground thus less impact.



5th egg drop this one has a possibility of living. the inner layer that holds the egg looks very secure.

Five examples of good egg drop enclosures that I found in the internet was egg drop parachute. In this video it shows some good examples of what we could do in the experiment. I think the more cusion we put to the egg the better it would be protected. We could use tape clue straws containers.

This one would work good because the pop corn in the milk carton act as a barrier keeping the egg in place and away from harm.



[LINK]



This one works because the balloon slows it down making the impact less painful



[LINK]



In this one the cups on the side make it go down slower causing the egg to hit the ground with less impact.





[LINK]



This one would be a good design because it is well cushioned.

This would also be good because of it being well cushioned.

This works simply for the fact that their is a lot of space between the crash site and the egg.



www.schillereng.com/EggDrop1.jpg



This design encases the egg giving a safe amount of room to cushion it.



starsapphire.files.wordpress.com/2007/06/egg.jpg



This layered design hopes to put as much material between the egg and the floor upon impact.



www.mcmnet.co.uk/images/eggDrop1.jpg



A hardened layered case yet still provides enough room to absorb the impact of the floor.



i441.photobucket.com/.../bellatoearth/cced.jpg



Easily one of the biggest designs I have ever seen yet i feel would most likely work given the fact that is plenty of room for the force to be absorbed.

The contest winner made hers out of jars of peanut butter.

The animation of the egg in a box proved to be sucessful.

The pictures are showing that the egg floated down to the grown.



Okay Mr.Urby, I hope I did this right

http://web.njit.edu/~leej/kmso/2004eggdrop/design3.gif this one would be very effective in taking impact off of the egg because of the parachute design. http://archone.tamu.edu/archcom/InsideTrack/Images/EggDrop.jpg this one is unique with its pryamid design and looks like it can really take good impact.http://blog.makezine.com/67397804_d7271e40cd.jpg this one has a cool wing design that would work kind of like the parachute one.http://www.schillereng.com/EggDrop1.jpgthis one looks extremely easy to build and since its big it can take alot of impact without harming egg.http://outreach.phys.vt.edu/projects/eggdrop1.JPG this one looks like its worth a try because the baloon can prevent serious impact and damage to the egg.

1) http://outreach.phys.vt.edu/projects/eggdrop1.JPG---this website has a good example because the egg is attached to the egg, allowing the egg to land slowly and safely.



2) [LINK] website has a good example because there's a huge protector surrounding the egg.



3) [LINK] website has a good example because the egg is surrounded by sticks with a lot of padding at the corners so it wouldn't fall so hard.



4) [LINK] website has a good example because the egg is surrounded by a little cube and the little cube is surrounded by a bigger cube so the egg is protected when landing.



5) [LINK] website has a good example because the egg is surrounded by tape so the shell would be protected when falling.

My egg is going to break with out a doubt. My perdiction of making the egg drop project was better than me actually designing the project. My egg is going to be another Humpty Dumpty. :(



i would of done millions of things different. My egg drop thingy wouldn't look like it does now, if i could go back and change everything. But infortunally i can't. So IF my egg makles it, it must of beeen luck and if it doesn't than it's not going to be suprize.



I think we should have had better tape, cause the tape you gave us doesn't work at all. It gave me really no help. I also wouold of wanted like cotton balls or something like that. It would have giving us students more of a chance to keep the egg in one place and not break open.

Well yeah, that's probably it.

maybe next year you'll let be smarter and give your students better supplies! :)

Some good egg drop enclosures are in the following links:

The egg enclosures I provided would be successful because they are protected and crafted so that the egg is secure and has a very good chance of not breaking. I think the assignment will be better if there is a limit to the materials that may be used.

Hyupothesis:  If their is a contraption in the location the egg will fall on it will probably not break if the structure is strong enough. If the egg is dropped from any height and comes at an angle chance are that the egg will still not break

The first one is good because it secures and keeps it in place.



The second one is good because when it falls to the ground the egg dont hit the ground the points do.



the third one ig good because it has plenty of cusion around the egg and is well secure.



the fifth one has the balls of cusion around it so that it dont hit square to the ground



the seventh one is good becaise the paper will make the egg come down slow and calmly.

The balloon will help the egg slow down because of the air inside of the balloon.

[LINK]

This will help the egg stay in the middle and not move.it also helps to not let the egg touch the ground.

[LINK]

the trash bag will become a parachute for the egg.

[LINK]

this will help because the egg will be surrounded by popcorn.

[LINK]

this will also work because the egg will be inside of a peanut butter jar.

And 2. the box in which its in has a lot of padding to keep the egg safe in its position.

of a paper parachute and the egg is in plastic which can also slow down the fall. and when it lands the material underneath will protect it from the fall.

www.fifeschools.com/cjh/staff/laker/images/EggDrop2009044.jpg I think that this is a great enclousure because no matter on wht side it land the cups

may bent but i dont believe it will damage the egg. also the plastic straws provide cushion for the egg.

farm3.static.flickr.com/2269/2057548789_1088ab383d.jpg I think this is great egg enclousure because the cardboard i believe wont get very damaged

and the plastic straws will be the fist to hit the ground. I believe if there is paper inside the juice carton it would make it even better.

web.njit.edu/~leej/kmso/2004eggdrop/Y10_09.gif I think this a great egg enclousure because the cotton balls are really soft and the wooden sticks are

really strong.

There are many ways to construct an enclosure for an egg drop experiment. a box, dart, and parachute seem to be effective. from [LINK]. the box seem effective, because there are many corners to reduce spead ans increase air resistance. the dart is good, because the tip absorbs most of the impact of the landing. the parachute is also good, because the parachute slows down the speed of the traveling egg, increasing the chances of a protected egg.

A balloon enclosure would be great, because, like a parachute, it will slow down the egg and help keep it in tact.[LINK].

Another good way to do this experiment is to cover the egg with straws. the straws will cushion the eggs fall.[LINK]

Like the box, if you enclose the egg in a triangle, the corners will cause the egg to go slower by cutting into the air.[LINK]

An enclosure with sails is not only beautiful, but effective. the sails will catch in the air and flaot for a second or two. this will reduce the speed and protect the egg.[LINK]

All these methods seem to be pretty effective if used in an egg drop experiment!

Example #1:

[LINK]



The Box: The egg is enclosed in a square box shape that is simple to build. The figure is light and compact but it provides poor egg protection.



The Dart: The egg is enclosed in an arrow like shape made from wooden chopsticks, string, paper clips and paper. The design provides a tip that absorbs impact of landing thus providing protection for the egg.



The Parachute: The egg is enclosed in a triangular figure tied to a "parachute". The enclosure is made of paper, string and wooden chopsticks. this design provides the best protection for the eggs although it doesn't provide the ability to point.







Example #2:

[LINK]



The first picture on the left of this webpage is a hot air balloon like design. The enclosure is made of a small dixie cup, straws, and a balloon. In my opinion, this design will provide absorbtion of impact because of its extended base and balloon.





Example #3:

[LINK]



The Mine: This design is made of an egg covered with shredded paper and six spikes/cones attached. I think this design is the worst for the protection of the egg. The spikes seem to hurt the egg rather than help it.



The Graduate: Designed to look like a diploma, the egg is covered with shredded paper and a cylinder attached at both ends. I am most concered about the cylinder colapsing upon impact. I dont think they provide the best protection for the egg.



The Sputnik: The egg is covered with shredded paper and attached to a piece of paper with three support "legs". This design reminds me of the parachute so I think it will protect the egg because of the force of impact decreasing.





Example #4:

[LINK]



The first picture on this webpage is an egg enclosed in a box covered with styrofoam cups. Althought the egg is probably packed tight with some kind of insulator, I think the styrofoam cups play a big role in absorbing impact.





Example #5:

[LINK]



This webpage shows the design of an egg surrounded with straws. The cocoon design is built so that no matter what angle the enclosure strikes at, maximum protection is ensured as is diffusion of force. The cocoon is designed to roll after impact giving it the best protection for the egg.

This design would increase air resistance causing the egg to land safely

2[LINK]

This design is insane! it would increase air resistance and it has a compartment to keep the egg in place.

3[LINK]

I would imagine that in the future all eggs will be dropped this way. it doesnt create much air resistance but its steel frame will keep the egg from cracking.

4.[LINK]

This design is ok. I dont think the balloon will create relevant air resistance but i believe the straws will act as shock absorbers, lessening the impact when hitting the floor.

5.[LINK]

This design will create a lot of air resistance. The structure will simply glide to a safe landing.

This can be compared to the running stop of a parachuter, it creates a gliding affect which in turn makes the landing force decrease.

The Bubble Bounce



Placing the egg into a box with bubble wrapping all around it will help reduce damage to the egg by having the bubbles take all the force, leaving the egg like new. Bubble Bounce Picture (Click HERE)





The Memory Foam Shell



Putting the egg inside this foam and shaping it into a ball-figure will enable the foam to act as an outer shell to protect the egg when it has an impact on the floor. Memory Foam Shell Picture (Click HERE)





The Pyramid Enclosure



The egg is placed in the center of the pyramid structure, which when thrown onto the floor, the impact will hit the corners of the pyramid, alllowing no damage to the egg. Pyramid Enclosure Picture (Click HERE)





The Ziplock-Bag Parachute



The egg is placed inside the cup, and when thrown off of the top of a building, the bag should open up and push air into it, making itself look/act like a parachute, safely landing the egg. Ziplock-Bag Parachute Picture (Click HERE)





The Rocket Launch



Placing the egg into this rocket with some cut-out rudders may gradually turn and slow the egg inside the rocket, therefore when the rocket crashes, the egg wouldn't be impacted as much because the tip would take the toll. Rocket Launch Picture (Click HERE)

The theory that eggs can survive an epic, hard fall from a high altitude has been discussed by experts for years. How can such an easily breakable shell of an egg stay in tact after such a forceful impact? How does one cushion the fall? Why do the eggs not end up on the ground, splattered as if ready to be made into an omelet? Why are people dropping eggs instead of eating them for breakfast? Below are some examples of how some eggsperts have attempted to solve the mystery of falling eggs.



1. Place the egg inside a can and use layers of foam of different density. What was suggested was to place a stiff, closed-cell foam right around the egg like from a sleeping pad and then use a less stiff open-cell foam like couch cushion to fill the can completely. This procedure would be a good protection for the egg because the layers of different-density padding make the egg slow down as slowly as possible and the egg  being completely cradled with no gaps ensures the best distribution of force around it's entire shell.



http://en.allexperts.com/q/Science-Kids-3250/2008/10/break-egg-crack-height.htm



2. Cushion the egg with paper towels. An egg dropped from a higher height has more energy because it is going faster. That means that the cushioning system has to absorb more energy if it is going to protect the egg from breaking. The cushioning system suggested in the site is paper towels. Depending on the thickness of the towels, height of the place where the egg will be dropped, and the velocity of the falling egg, the paper towels will encase the egg and keep it from breaking as long as a sufficient amount are used to cushion the egg so I think it will work well.



http://www.marshallbrain.com/science/egg-drop.htm



3. Boxes, Balloons, Rice Krispies, oh my! Grab a box and fill it with Rice Krispies. Then make a three way hammock by using something like pantyhose and place the egg in it. Cover the show box in air filled balloons so that they will cushion the fall and act as protectors. The acceleration is also slowed down and help reduced the force of impact. I think it will give good protection because once the box hits the ground the balloons will pop and protect the box, where the Rice Krispies will hold the egg in place.



http://www.blurtit.com/q167178.html



4. Elevator Effect. Get a cardboard box and a really long sock. Put the Egg in the middle of the sock and then slip both ends of the sock onto the holes on the sides of the box and tie it securely. When it is dropped the egg will bounce but be cushioned by the sock and this procedure would work well because its like when a person rides an elevator, they're falling so fast its as if you're "floating".



http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090512101549AAZkRAr



5. Wrap in bubble wrap. Get bubble wrap and surround an egg with it, then place it inside of a water bottle thats had the top and bottom cut off. After securing everything the bubble wrap should be a suitable cushion for the egg. I think this would work very well because even though the creation is lightweight and only slightly reduces the speed of the egg, the cushion will affect the impulse and protect the egg.

I think two of these designs worked and the reason they were successful was because they made sure that the egg was well cushioned and the design was made to slow down.



www.montshire.org/eggdrop/rules.html



A few of these looked like they would protect the egg but I don't think they would help much in slowing it down.



Urby this is all I could find because the school blocks so many things!!! I did look & I found a lot of words but not too many pictures!!!
