why does an egg float or sink in water
Normaly if an egg floats it is bad and should be discarded. As the egg ages air pockets enter the egg, that's why they float. A change in buoyancy. If the egg is more dense then the water (or whatever liquid it is in), it will sink.
No, it will float in vinegar or salt though. Coke is not dense enough to make an egg float.
viscosity of saline water is higher than that of pure water
It depends on the freshness of an egg.
the egg will sink. ----
If it is a fresh egg it will sink. If it is a bad egg it will float.
Bad eggs don't sink they float.
But it stays afloat if the egg is cooked!
A fresh egg will sink in water while an older egg will float.
In fresh water a good egg will sink. If you put an uncooked egg in water and it floats, throw it away. A boiled egg will float, and in a strong concentration of salt water, an egg will float.
yes an egg floats in salt water
yes because the downward forces on the egg is greater than the upward forces therefore making it to sink
yes the egg will float by, christopher soria
The density of a fresh egg is higher than the density of water.
Because the egg is fresh. If it floats, means its not fresh.
born alive not an egg..... a egg would sink
The density of the average egg will be slightly greater than water, so it will sink. To make the egg float, make the water more dense by adding salt. For one cup of water, adding three tablespoons of salt should be about enough to make the egg float.
