Egg Drop Laboratory

YOUR TASK: To produce a craft in which an egg (egg must be inside the craft) can be dropped from 2 meters or higher and not break. The goal is for each student to use their knowledge of potential and kinetic energy to keep an egg from breaking or cracking when dropped. The following outline will help you organize your laboratory report. GOOD LUCK!

TITLE:                                                                                                                     

PURPOSE OF LABORATORY:
                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                               

MATERIALS LIST:
                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                               

PROCEDURE: (Diagram the craft you designed. Include measurements off to the side of the diagram and label all significant parts of the craft. Write a description of how the craft works using complete sentences below the diagram).

ANALYSIS AND RESULTS:

  1. Did the craft survive the fall from the stairs?                                                                               
     

  2. What was successful in the design of the craft?                                                                         
                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                 

     

  3. What would you change about your craft if you did the experiment again?                                    
                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                 

     

  4. As the egg drops, what type of energy conversion is taking place? Explain.                                 
                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                 

CONCLUSIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: (In 4-5 sentences, summarize what you did in this laboratory and what you learned in this laboratory. Explain what parts were successful and how you could improve your craft in the future. Sign and date the laboratory at the bottom of the paragraph).
