10. When a large egg was dropped from 5meters onto a 1-inch foam surface, it landed safely. Which changes in conditions would lead to a fractured or a broken egg? select all that would.
a. Change the egg size to small
b. Change the egg size to jumbo
c. Change the surface to a hard floor
d. Change the surface to a box of foam
e. Change the drop height to 1 meter
f. Change the drop height to 10 meters.

11. Which set of experimental conditions would result in the least amount of force on the egg?
a. Drop a small egg from a height of 1 meter into a box of foam
b. Drop a jumbo egg from a height of 10 meters on a hard surface
c. Drop a jumbo egg from a height of 10 meters onto 1-inch foam
d. Drop a small egg from a height of 1 meter into a box of foam
e. Drop a small egg from a height of 10 meters into a box of foam

12. Which set of experimental conditions would result in the most amount of force on the egg?
a. Drop a small egg from a height of 1 meter on 1-inch foam surface
b. Drop a large egg from a height of 5 meters on hard floor
c. Drop a small egg from a height of 1 meter on box of foam
d. Drop a jumbo egg from a height of 10 meters on hard floor.

Background: This Interactive involves observing the results of dropping an egg onto a surface. The size of the egg, the height from which it is dropped, and the characteristics of the landing surface can be varied. The interactive is based on the impulse-momentum change theorem.

10. C. change the surface to a hard floor- this is because when the egg will hit a hard floor, its velocity will change quickly as the time duration of activity is less because of no spaces in hard floor leading to more impulse.

11. A.and D (same) Drop a small egg from a height of 1meter into a box of foam because the mass and height are directly proportional to the force and energy.

12. D. Drop a jumbo egg from a height of 10 meters on hard floor because in this option, the mass and height are more and surface is hard leading to maximum amount of force on the egg.
