What happen when egg shell is mixed with vinegar?
The acetic acid in vinegar will eventually dissolve the egg shell (composed from calcite, a crystalline form of calcium carbonate) away entirely. Without the hard shell, the albumin and the yolk will be held egg-shaped by the thin skin of the inner shell membrane. The inner skin membrane is between the hard outer shell and the albumin (commonly called egg white).

What called the cover of hen egg?
It depends on your definition. The hard outer covering of an egg is called a shell. It protects the contents of the egg, and gives chicks a safe place to develop when the egg is incubated. The coating that is put on the egg when it is laid which keeps out bacteria is called the bloom. The bloom protects the egg until it is washed off; at that time, the egg is then susceptible to germs entering the egg through the shell.

What are hard boiled eggs made of?
A hard boiled egg is made of..... egg. It is simply a whole egg, in the shell that has been placed in boiling water. The heat causes the liquid egg inside the shell to become solid. The yolk of the egg becomes the yellow center, and the clear "white" of the egg becomes the white outer part of the boiled egg. Remove shell, add salt to taste, eat.
