# Bang bang, I hit the ground...

During a busy day at the restaurant, a chef accidentally knocks two eggs off his table. The first one of lands on the hard floor and breaks into lots of tiny pieces, while the second lands on the soft carpet nearby, and comes to a full stop without breaking nor bouncing.

What can we say about the impulses endured by the two eggs, $$\vec{I}_{1}$$ and $$\vec{I}_{2}$$ ?
