actually float in it! Explore how this works in this science activity ...
Salt added to water in a cup makes an egg float because the saltwater's density
is greater than the egg's density. Density is a ... Why does adding salt to water
increases its density? ... Explore. What happens when metals react with acids? Q:
In the Floating Egg experiment, we'll show you how the addition of something as
simple as table salt, can drastically alter what happens to eggs in water.
An egg sinks to the bottom if you drop it into a glass of ordinary drinking water but
what happens if you add salt? The results are very interesting and can teach ...
Put your hard-boiled egg gently in the water. What happens? Does the egg sink
or float? It should sink! How will you get your egg to float? Have a think and then
What You Do. 1. Fill one glass almost to the top with water. 2. Carefully drop an
egg into the water-filled glass, and watch what happens. 3. Fill the second glass ...
May 6, 2008 ... Eggs - we used raw, but hard boiled does not make a difference. ... to write down
the object they are observing, their hypothesis, and the result.
A hard-boiled Egg will sink in plain water and will float in salt water. An egg is
denser than plain water but lighter than salt water, hence so. The result may vary
1 clear glass or jar 1 cup sugar. Food coloring (any color -- it is not necessary for
the experiment but it does help to understand the last part of the experiment).
The goal of this science fair project is to determine what salt concentration will
float an egg.
