Question How does the type of surface affect the outcome of the egg’s shell breaking? Hypothesis As we increase the amount of the cushion on the surface, then the egg will not break because the surface will not be hard enough of a surface to make the egg break.

Materials 6 eggs (chicken grade AA) 3 different types of surfaces that you will be dropping the eggs onto (fluffy pillow, towel, 26 pages or sheets of newspaper) meter stick or measuring tape

MV-Type of surface that you are dropping the egg onto. RV- Outcome of the egg breaking or not CV- type of egg(chicken, grade AA), height that you are dropping your egg from(4 feet)

Egg Drop Observations Type of SurfaceTrial 1Trial 2 Fluffy PillowThe egg did not break. It bounced, then landed onto the kitchen floor. It also did not break and it also bounced again, but this time landed on the pillow. 5 layer towelIt did not break but it made a loud thump noise. It made a crack in the egg and some liquids oozed out. 26 Pages of NewspaperIt made a big hole and most of the egg insides came out. It completely exploded and everything splattered everywhere.

Procedure 1)Place the pillow on the ground. 2)Use your tape measure and measure 4 ft off the ground. 3) Grab one egg and hold it at 4 feet, then drop the egg onto the pillow. 4) Record your observations. 5) Clean your area and repeat steps 2-4 with a new egg 6) repeat steps 1-5 but with a towel folded into five layers 7) Repeat steps 1-5 but now with 26 layers of newspaper

Conclusion We thought that if we increased the softness of the surface, then the egg will not break. Our results showed the that the egg did not break under the soft surfaces. We can prove this because the egg did not break when on the pillow and it did break under the newspapers. This supports my original hypothesis. Therefore if we increase the softness of the surface, then the egg will not break.
