    Increasing the impact time decreases the impulse

    Ohhh!!! So egg drop thing is dropping it on something hard and something soft and noting the difference? And you want to tie this to Newton's laws?

    Just a quick version.. I wish we could have discussion! But here it goes. 1. to stop the egg, the ground must exert a force on the egg 2. the greater the acceleration (slowing of the egg), the greater the force. A slow deceleration on a pillow means lesser force applied throughout. 3. The pillow pushes the egg to stop it, and the egg pushes on the pillow at the same time. Both the egg and pillow experience this impact and compress... I hope this has helped. Take care!
