hi, I just got my project from physics, and its that annoying, classic egg drop situation. I have a lot of restrictions, and its out of 20 points, so its pretty hard. I would LOVE it if any one of you could maybe contribute any ideas and suggestions and such. Thanks a bunch! Restrictions and Point Deductions: Time: Time of fall is less than 2 seconds= no deduction Time of fall is between 2 seconds and 4 seconds= -1 pt Time of fall is between 4 seconds and 10 seconds= -2 pts Time of fall is greater than 10 seconds= -3pts Accuracy: If landing and at rest within 40cm squared target area on the ground= no deduction If landing and at rest outside 40cm sqared target area on ground= -1pt deduction Height: If final resting place of egg is within 5 cm of ground level= no deduction If final resting place of egg is between 5 cm and 10 cm off the ground= -1 pt If final resting place of egg is between 10cm and 35cm off the ground= -3 pts If final resting place of egg is greater than 35 cm off the ground= -4 pts Construction Use of padding around the egg= -3 pts Use of catching device with a base greater than 400cm squared= -1 pt Use of catching device with a base greater than 1200cm squared= -2 pts Use of a catching device higher than 30cm= -1 pt Use of any type of casing/box/bottle/enclosing covering the egg= -1 pt Use of duct tape/any type of tape= -2 pts Survivability If egg cracks but does not leak= -1 pt If egg breaks and leakage occurs= -4 pts Engineering Effort If the device shows minimal effort/though= -5 pts !Remember that this project is out of 20 pts, so to get an A, I can only miss 1! (I just want to get some ideas of how other pros would do it, so suggestions and comments and idea would be greatly appreciated.) Thanks Again!
