Make an Egg Bungee

Step 5 of 10: Drop the egg and measure

Hold the rubber band and the egg at the “0” point of your measuring stick. Keep holding the rubber band at this point while you drop the egg. Note how far down the measuring stick the egg fell. Write your findings in the chart. Drop the egg two more times and record how far it falls each time. Calculate the average distance as noted in the chart.
