Egg Car Challenge (Research)

In order for my car to carry the egg and protect it during the crash. I did some research about the safety feature that will made the egg more safer. One of the safety I will use for my car is “Crumple Zone”, crumble zone is the areas in a car that are use to be crumble in a collision. According to the reading “Crumble Zones”, it said “Crumple zones accomplish two safety goals. They reduce the initial force of the crash, and they redistributes the force before it reach the vehicle’s occupants……That amount of force is spent on bending the frame, so it is never transmitted to the occupants” Which mean, the purpose of the crumble zone is when a car in the crash, crumble zones will take some of the energy cause by the impact and move it to someway else so the occupant’s will be seriously injury.

Another safety feature I will have in my car is the Seat Belts. According to the report from the “National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration”. It said, “Seat belts save approximately 13,000 lives in the United States each year.” Which show seat belt can be very useful on protecting the egg if I had one on my car. The purpose of seat belts is to keep you on your seat when the car come to a quick stop after I have been travel so fast so you don’t fly away. According to the reading “Seat Belts” it state, “The force of the pole would bring the car to an abrupt stop, but your speed would remain the same…. something would have to exert force on you to slow you down.” Which mean, when you are during the car and the car just come to a sudden stop, the force acting on the car is gone, but the force acting on you is still acting on you, and something have to happen to balanced it out  of that force and a seat belts will applies the stopping to your body so that force remain from the car can be balanced.
