Impulse Momentum Theorem + Egg Drop?? I have to explain how the impulse momentum theorem relates to my egg drop. My egg was padded with a styrofoam cup and tissues and a plastic bag parachute. Honestly, I don't understand the impulse momentum theorem and I am in need of help! I have fall times, the drop distance, final velocity, avg acceleration, mass, impulse, and max KE if that helps. All I know is that impulse is directly related to the change in momentum.
