well im doing a project in my physics class where i have to create a device for an egg to survive a 11m fall. i created a device similar to that of a bike helmet.
its been tested and it works but now i have to discuss the reason why it works. i need to include physics principles and the formulas for them such as energy conservation, momentum conservation, pressure, air resistance, terminal velocity etc. etc. and how they help prevent an egg from breaking. anything will help. thanks
