An Eggcellent Solution
2011 VIRTUAL SCIENCE FAIR ENTRY
My science fair problem for my project is, “What is the effect of positioning of eggshells on the amount of weight that can be supported?” I will be testing to see how strong eggshells are, or how much weight they can bear. I will be expecting the vertical dome to sustain weight for a longer period of time. I think this because I researched the scientific and mathematical reasoning behind the arch in eggshells. The higher the arch, the more support there is because there is a smaller area around the edges and there can be more weight distributed.
