Bouncy Egg- Toby's Blog Post

What happens when we mix warm vinegar and an egg?

What you will need: white vinegar, an egg and a plastic cup.
1. Heat the vinegar in the microwave.
2. Put the vinegar in a cup.
3. Put the egg into the cup.
4. Wait about 2 days.

 The shell dissolves.

There are gas bubbles. The egg will get swollen and it will feel a bit  like a balloon.

  1. Hello Toby. Isn't that the most amazing Science experiment! Some of my children have done it and the egg feels so strange. Congratulations for participating in your Blog because lots of people all over the world are keen to see what your class is doing!
    Keep up the great work.
    From Mrs. Kolenberg and the childen in Room 4 at Craigburn Primary School.

  2. Wow Toby! That looks like a lot of fun! Pity I pulled my egg out of the vinegar after an hour or time I will leave it in for 2 days and see if I can get my egg to bounce too! Toby's Mum

  3. Wow Toby. This is amazing. It takes a lot of patience to wait two full days. I'm not sure I can wait that long. Good work! Aunty Ashley
