This could almost be a magic trick: Normally, eggs sink in water. But with a little trick you can make an egg float. We'll show you how it works.
The floating egg – what’s behind it?
You will need
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Glasses
Let’s get started
1. Immerse eggs in glasses with water
Take two eggs and two glasses and place one egg in each glass. Carefully fill the glasses with warm water until the eggs are completely covered with water.
2. Add salt
Now add about four to five heaped teaspoons of table salt to one of the two glasses.
3. Dissolve the salt
Stir carefully. Wait until the salt has almost dissolved and observe what happens.
4. The egg floats!
When the salt is almost completely dissolved, the egg begins to float to the surface. You've done it!
