Can Eggs Float In The Ocean Density Science Experiment
In this fun and easy density science experiment, we’re going to explore and investigate if eggs can float in the ocean.
- Two eggs
- Measuring spoon
- Two clear cups
- Fill both of the cups with water.
- Add about six tablespoons of salt to one of the cups and stir until dissolved. There may be some salt remaining in the bottom of the cup.
- Place and egg in each cup and observe what happens.
How it Works:
A egg is more dense than water and will sink in regular tap water. As salt is dissolved into water, the water eventually become more dense than the egg. The egg will then appear to “float” on top of the more dense solution.
Make This A Science Project:
Test other items that sink in water and then try to make salt solutions to see if you can get the item to float. Try making solutions with sugar or other items.
