  • Title: Egg Farmers of Newfoundland and Labrador | Eggsperiments
    Descriptive info: Egg-speriments.. 1.. Now it Sinks, Now it Floats.. Fill two glasses with water.. Stir ¼ cup (50 mL) salt into one glass until the salt is dissolved.. Place a raw egg in its shell in each glass.. What happens?.. Result.. : When you add salt to the water, you make it heavier, or denser, than the egg.. egg which means the egg will float in the water.. With a little “egg-sperimenting” you can add just enough salt to make the egg float halfway in the glass.. 2.. Find the Fresh Egg.. Fill a bowl with water.. Place a fresh egg and an older egg (one that is well past the Best Before date on the carton) in the water.. What happens?.. : The fresh egg will sink and the older egg will float.. As an egg ages, air enters the egg through tiny pores in the eggs shell and collects at the wide end of the egg.. Over time, this makes the egg light enough to float in water.. 3.. Find the Uncooked Egg.. Spin an uncooked and a hard-cooked egg on a table top.. Ask a friend to guess which one is the uncooked egg.. : When you try to spin an uncooked egg, its liquid yolk and white will move around making the egg wobble instead of spin.. The hard-cooked egg will spin smoothly since the insides are solid and therefore more stable.. 4.. The Un-Crushable Egg Shell.. Wrap masking tape over the broken edges of four  ...   similarities between the egg and your teeth?.. : The egg becomes stained with cola and is removed by the toothpaste.. 6.. Can You Remove the Shell of an Egg Without Cracking it?.. Place an egg into a glass.. Add enough vinegar to cover the egg.. After one day, use a spoon to carefully lift the egg out of the glass.. Rinse the egg under a bit of water while gently rubbing the shell with your fingers.. If the shell doesn’t come off completely, place the egg back in the vinegar and leave it for two to three more days until the shell can be removed completely.. : Eggshells contain calcium which makes them hard.. Vinegar, an acid, dissolves the calcium in the shell.. The skin or membrane under the shell does not react to the vinegar and is left to hold the egg together.. 7.. Can You Make an Egg Bounce?.. Take the shell-less egg that had been soaking in vinegar and let it soak in a glass of water for a couple of days.. What happens? Try dropping the egg from a few feet (1 m) above the floor or table.. : The vinegar removes the hard shell but the membrane surrounding the egg remains.. Soaking the egg in water causes the egg to expand due to osmosis; there is a greater concentration of water on the outside of the egg membrane so the water moves into the egg.. The water also stretches the membrane, making the egg "bouncy"..
