Density of boiled and raw egg?
The density of an egg that I boiled was 1.02 * density of tap water. The density of a raw egg was 1.06 * the density of tap water. The mass of the egg did not change so the volume increased slightly. With a raw egg and a boiled egg covering in water, if you add salt and mix slowly you find that the boiled egg will float first and if you continue to add salt you get both to float. Interestingly, recipes for making a brine solution for food preparation frequently tell you to put a raw egg in water and add enough salt in solution to make the egg float. This assures enough salt for a good brine solution.
Does an egg float in salt water or tap water?
It depends on the density of the egg in comparison with the density of the water. If the egg is more dense than the water, it will sink. If it is less dense than the water, it will float. This is called buoyancy. Adding salt to water will make the water more dense, increasing the likelihood of the egg floating on the water. I have not done this experiment, however, so I do not know how much salt would be required to accomplish this. Anyone with the correct answer is welcome to step in and refine this answer. A "normal" egg don't float on the water surface; only old, partially altered eggs float on water - this is a simple test for freshness.

Why do eggs float on salty water but not on ordinary water?
An egg sinks in fresh water but floats in a strong solution of salt why?
because following the density principle, the density of the egg compared to the density of the tap water is lesser....(the density principle states that an object or substance with lesser density will float on the surface of the substance or object which has the greater density...).....now,,,with salt,,, salt makes the density of the tap water to increase and increases also the salinity of the water making the egg float because the density of the water with salt is now greater than the density of the egg.... An egg will float when the density of the water is greater than the density of the egg. Adding salt increases the density of a salt water solution. Whether the egg floats or sinks depends on the condition of the egg as well as the amount of salt in the water. If an object is LESS dense than the solution that it is in, then it WILL float. If an object is MORE dense than the solution it is in, then it WILL NOT float. An egg is more dense than regular water; therefore, the egg will sink. But when you add salt to the water, you are making the solution more dense. The salt water's density becomes greater to the point that it is more dense than the egg. Because the egg is now LESS dense than the water, it floats.

Would an object with a density of 0.85g per ml float sink or remain suspended in tap water?
Why would an egg float in water with a lot of salt in it but not in plain tap water?
If you add salt to water, it becomes a solution of salt and water. That solution is denser than just water. Archimedes' Principle says that if you place an object in a fluid, it will be "buoyed" up by the weight of the fluid that it displaces. If you're an egg, then you will displace an egg volume of the fluid into which I place you. The displaced volume of salt water weighs more than just water, so you float rather than sink.
Asked in Earth Sciences, Dead Sea
Why do you float on the Dead Sea?
Answers Because there is so much salt in it, Dead Sea water is very dense compared with fresh water or ordinary sea water. And because less objects or surface floats in water. An example of it is a needle, tissue and a tap water. When you put the needle in the water it will sink because it is denser than the water, but when you use the tissue to let the needle float the density of the needle lesses, and it is called surface tension.
