1. st ann is worried about eggs? That's a strange School Subject. Is this physics or biology or what subject? We do not have a tutor skilled in the subject "st anns".

2. maybe it was a stone sculpture of an egg.
Or, maybe the egg had been soaked in vinegar, so it was all rubbery.
Or, maybe it was a hard-boiled egg.
Or, maybe there were feathers on the block.
Or, maybe it was thrown on a small asteroid, so gravity was very weak.

Questions like this seem rather pointless to me.

When thrown into the air from the top of a 50 ft building, a ballâ€™s height, S, at time t can be found by S(t) = -16t^2 + 32t + 50. When t = 1, s = -16(1)^2 + 32(1) + 50 = 66. This implies that after 1 second, the height of the
