This egg experiment is about one uncooked chicken egg that goes through in each of the steps according to the order of sequence as follows: Step 1: egg is soaked in vinegar until completely de-shelled/naked; Step 2: naked egg taken from step 1 is submerged in pancake syrup; and Step 3: egg taken from step 2 is submerged in water.
Relevant data are firstly determined and recorded for a series of time increments. The materials include: 1 uncooked chicken egg, water, pancake syrup, vinegar, clear container, strainer, electronic balance, paper towels, paper, pencil, camera, and tape measure.
Result details the procedures taken, predictions, data collected, graphs and descriptive observations. Video clips of the procedures of this experiment are embedded of which are taken from online resources (edited and inserted with some text description of ‘how I did’ in this experiment). Data are primarily actual photos and numerical quantities that are measured in this experiment. Also, graphs are made available for a pictorial representation of numerical data as well as descriptive observations on actual outcome of the experiment.
Phenomena of each step are discussed and explained based on researches made on some keywords such as chemical reaction, acid/base, osmosis, diffusion, concentration gradient, hypertonic, hypotonic, semi-permeable membrane and super saturated solution. Graphics and simulation/videos are also included.
Lastly, in order to gain more insight about this concept and its relevance, some suggested extensions are also included.
Procedure: Step 1. (I did not know yet that I could embed videos in MS word so I didn’t bother to take a video myself. However, I found videos online that I edited and put some text description of ‘how I did’ in my experiment. Click here to see original source.)
Data: Photos and measurements are taken on actual experiment.
Initially … After 30 hours …
Table 1 Table 2
Mass = 59.42 g Mass = 72.28 g
Circumference (Vertical) = 16 cm Circumference (Vertical) = 17 cm
Circumference (Horizontal) = 13.9 cm Circumference (Horizontal) = 14.3 cm
Graph: Pictorial representation of the numerical figures above.
Bubbles are formed immediately around the egg when submerges in white vinegar asseen in table 1 then later on much more bubbles accumulates on the surface of the water as seen in photo of step 1. Also as predicted, the egg increased in mass and size even though the outer shell is dissolved.
Procedure: Step 2. (Click here to see original source.)
Data: Photos and measurements are taken for a series of two time increments.
Initially … After 2 hours … After 4 hours …
