Design Experiment

Research Question:

How to prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from a certain height with the

changes of volume of gas in the balloon?

Introduction:

Gravity is a powerful force that has an impact in our lives. Gravity gives downward

force on our bodies that creates the friction between our feet and the ground that

allows us to walk.

Momentum and collisions:

An object that is moving has momentum. The amount of momentum (p) is possessed

by the moving object is the product of mass (m) and velocity (v). The equation is:

p=m v

Knowing the numerical values of all but one of the quantities in the equation allows

us to be able to calculate the final quantity in the equation. The equation also can be

treated as a statement, which describes qualitatively how one variable depends upon

another. Momentum is directly proportional to both mass and velocity. Thinking and

reasoning proportionally about quantities allows us to be able to predict how an

alteration in one variable would affect another variable.

In a collision, a force acts upon an object for a given amount of time to change the

objects velocity. The product of force and time is known as impulse. The product of

mass and velocity change is known as momentum change.

impulse=momentum change

f t=mass v

In collision between two objects, each object is interacting with the other object. The

interaction involves force acting between the objects for some amount of time. This

force and time constitutes an impulse and the impulse changes the momentum of each

object. The Newtons laws of motion give the rule for such a collision. The laws of

motion can be applied to the analysis of the collision situation.

In a collision between object 1 and object 2, the force exerted on object 1 (F1) is

equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the force exerted on object 2 (F2).

F 1=F 2

The statement is an application of Newtons third law of motion to the collision

between objects 1 and 2.

Depends on what the egg weighs, the lift of helium in air is equal to the (density of

air-density of helium) x displaced volume of temperature x gravitational constant.

Weigh the egg first then find the lift by multiplying the weight in grams before using

the formula.

Hypothesis:

With more amount of helium, it would be able to keep the egg falling slowly, so the

egg would not drop quickly and not break.

Variables:

Dependent Variables

The mass of the egg

Independent Variables

The volume of gas in the

balloon

Materials:

Plastic cups (to carry the egg)

Egg

Controlled Variables

The mass of the plastic

cups

Balloon

Helium Gas

String (to tie the balloon to the plastic cups)

Stopwatch

Notepads, pens (to write notes)

Experiment:

1. Fill the balloons with different volume of helium for this experiment.

2. Prepare the eggs and place them in the plastic cups, make sure the eggs are

equal in their mass.

3. Tie the balloons filled with helium to the plastic cups.

4. From a high place (at least three floors), drop the eggs that were tied with the

balloons.

5. Calculate the volume or helium in the balloon, and using the stopwatch,

collect the time of the egg reaching to the ground, safely.

6. Using the formula p=m v to calculate the momentum.

7. Record the numbers calculated in the data collected to prove the hypothesis.
