Longview HS students dropping eggs for learning

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Clear Scotch tape, string and a piece of paper; that's all some East Texas students could use to save a raw egg dropped from a balcony.

A physics teacher at Longview High School created an experiment involving the impulse-momentum theory.

The theory basically says that any impulse acting on a system changes that system's momentum.

Make sense? Well, don't worry; KLTV's Lynn Mitchell set out to watch the students prove that it's not the fall that breaks the egg, it's the sudden drop, as  you'll see in this video.
