An egg will sink in water but will float in salt water. An egg will sink faster in hot water than it will in cold water.

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.

If it is a fresh egg it will sink. If it is a bad egg it will float.

It depends on the freshness of an egg.

Bad eggs don't sink they float.

But it stays afloat if the egg is cooked!

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.

A fresh egg will sink in water while an older egg will float.

yes an egg floats in salt water

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.

yes because the downward forces on the egg is greater than the upward forces therefore making it to sink

Because the egg is fresh. If it floats, means its not fresh.

born alive not an egg..... a egg would sink

The density of a fresh egg is higher than the density of water.

The egg will sink into the glass bottle because the glass is open but a plastic bottle is not open. It is closed with a cap and it is much to small for an egg to fit through.

It all depends on the density of the water and the egg. The egg is denser than water. Therefore, it will sink. But if you add salt or anything and dilute it in the water the egg will float because the water becomes denser then.

Egg is denser than vinegar. The egg will sink when placed inside a jar with vinegar. So to make the vinegar denser, one must add salt or other solute.

yes because the soda is lighter than an egg so it pushes th egg out of the way

If the egg is good and not spoiled it will sink down. If the egg is spoiled it will float up.

If a person puts a raw egg in water, it will either sink, sink and stand on point, or float. Each of these is an indicator of the eggs freshness.

i think that it is possible to make an egg flout by adding salt to the water, the salt add's thickness to the water causing the egg to not be able to sink, i done it as a science experiment the other day ;) If we increase the specific gravity of water(by adding common salt) than the specific gravity of egg, then the egg will float.

An egg sinks if it is more dense than water.
