Floating Eggs

science project #172

Big Question

How much salt does it take to float an egg?


If I add alot of salt then the egg will float.


1.An egg


3.Tall glass of water


1.I poured half a glass of water into a tall glass.

2. Then I poured six tablespoons of salt into the glass then I mixed the water and the salt together and poured the rest of the water into the glass.

3.I gently put the egg in the tall glass and waited to see what happened.


After I put the salt in and dropped the egg in I watched the egg float. It did not drop to the bottom.


It takes alot of salt to make an egg float. My hypothesis was correct.
