Homework Statement


In our phhysics class we are dropping an egg from 2 stories and we are given multiple restrictions inlcuding:
No Parachutes.
Length must not exceed 50cm in any direction.
The design may not consist primarily of packing materials.
Commercial packing materials may not be used.
Cannot be more than $5.




Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I've been thinking about using a low heium balloon to slow down the drop of the project and keeping the egg in a half cut water bottle and using wipes and dryer sheets to cushion the cup in which holds the egg. The thing I'm stuck on is how to suspend the egg when I don't have a lot of materials to work with.

I tried looking on google, but everyone has different restrictions.

Thanks!
