Physics 101, Day 35



Test run. My daughter is practicing dropping a raw egg from 14 feet up. Each student has to figure out how to protect the egg in a specific-sized soup can so that when the teacher drops it, the egg comes out totally unscathed. If cracked, a zero will be had.... This dry run produced two initial casualties followed by four successes.

Tomorrow will be grading day....wish her luck.

My kids had to do that too. I hope her little egg makes it down unscathed!

Did you have the "failures" for breakfast?

Robert - yup, one of them anyway. The other is still in the fridge in a baggie - I was going to cook it up until I heard on the news that they are now linking daily ingestion of eggs to type II diabetes......

Ahh, the old "egg drop" - I remember it well. That was my favorite thing in my physics class. I hope all goes well for her in the final test! Good luck!

Her egg lived!!!!
