Samantha : egg car
How can I protect an egg
as it rolls down a ramp and
into a wall?
I think I can protect a plastic egg with 5 quarters in it from breaking as it runs off a ramp into a wall by using materials that are similar to the ones in a car.
Speed- Speed is the rate at which an object is able to move or operate.
Force- Force is the strength or energy as an attribute of physical action or movement.
Inertia- Inertia is the tendency of an object to continue doing what it is doing.
Acceleration- Acceleration is any change in direction of speed. Ex. , turning, slowing down, or speeding up.
Friction - Friction is the resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another.
Momentum- Momentum is the quantity of motion of a object.
Potential Energy- Potential energy is stored energy that is not moving.
Kinetic Energy- Kinetic energy is energy in motion, moving energy.
The materials I used were duct tape to protect the egg,
and part of an egg carton.
I used lego wheels and a base made of legos.
First I cut an egg holder out of a whole egg carton.
Next, I stuck two thin yellow lego pieces together
and put wheels on the bottom.
Next I put a green lego square on the top of that and
duct taped the egg carton piece on top.
