1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data My physics teacher is making us do an egg drop after only being in school for two weeks. We can only use up to four 8.5" x 11" sheets of regular computer paper and as much tape as we want. The tape cannot be used as more than a form of attachment. Meaning that the tape cannot make a basket or strings for a parachute, for example. The egg has to be able to survive 3 drops, two from a second floor window, and one from the top of a football stadium. The more times the egg can survive the fall without the slightlest crack, the better grade I get. 2. Relevant equations I'm not sure. 3. The attempt at a solution I tried to build a double parachute design. I made a basket roughly the size of the egg with a double layered bottom(two layers of paper). The parachute had six strips of paper connecting the basket to the 11" parachute. I cut a one inch hole into the center of my parachute, and put a smaller 2" parachute about 2" above the other parachute. I dropped it a few times onto a couch and a bed from a few feet high and once I got it to fall a bit slower, I dropped it onto a padded table. The egg cracked almost completly in half when I dropped it onto the table.
