These Earth Science Experiments use fresh eggs for a fun and easy science activity. In this experiment you will learn how eggs can actually float in water instead of sinking. After getting your eggs to float you will try floating an egg between fresh and salty water.
Try these science experiments
In these Earth Science Experiments you found that eggs are denser than fresh water so they sink when placed in fresh water. Dissolving salt in the water increases its density.
The density of the salty water gives it more lifting power. That is why you can float an egg in salty water but not in plain fresh water.
If you go swimming in the ocean you will find it is easier to float in the ocean than a fresh water lake. The Dead Sea is one of the saltiest lakes in the world. People love to go there to float on the lake's water!
