Energy in Collision By Nandhu

Energy

Energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms but never created or destroyed.

Types Of Energy

1. Kinetic Energy--Kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion

2.Potential Energy--Potential energy is energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to other

Energy In Collision

When two objects bump into each other, this is called a collision. A collision doesn't have to involve an accident (like two cars crashing into each other), but can be any event where two or more moving objects exert forces on each other for a short period of time.

Collision can make different types of energy like sound ,kinetic ,potential and a lot more for example If a cars hit and parked car the parked goes forward it provides sound and kinetic energy how when 2 cars hit it makes sound so that is sound energy.It also make kinetic energy because 1 car goes forward and it moved so that's how it is kinetic energy

How Does Weight Affect Energy Transfer in Collisions?

If two cars having different weight bump into each other ,the car with more weight have more energy and it will push the lighter car . The lighter car will have more disadvantage and will have more chance of injury.

Our Car
This is our car we tested and here is what we put on our car. We put a bumper on the front because if hit the wall most of the energy will go on the bumper instead of the egg.We put a wall on the front of the egg because it wont make the egg fall out.We put a rubber band (seat belt) because it will secure the egg .We put a back wall because so the egg wont tip backwards.
Experiment
  • This is our slow motion video of our egg surviving .
Test Results
  • Our egg survived
Improvements

Improvements we would add to our car like take out a little weight and make bigger space for the egg because when we tested our car the egg barley had any space.and we should make bigger seat belt.We should also make bigger walls.
