If you throw a raw egg against a wall, you’ll break it, but if you throw it with the same speed into a sagging sheet it won’t break.Why?
1. The breaking egg causes a larger impact
time, decreasing the force.
2. The impact time when the egg strikes a
sagging sheet is long, so the impact force is
3. The velocity of the egg decreases faster in
the sheet than on the wall.
4. The sheet is much slicker than the wall.
