The bouncing egg Experiment

Exp 6

Have you seen this experiment floating around blogland and Pinterest?  It was so much fun and super easy to do which is always a plus.  If you haven't tried this yet I highly recommend it. 

All you need is a jar, a raw egg, and some vinegar.  What could be easier? 

Exp 1
  1. Put your egg inside the jar.
  2. Cover the egg with white vinegar.
  3. Let it set for 24 hours.
  4. After 24 hours dump the old vinegar and put fresh vinegar into your jar.
  5. Let the egg rest in the new vinegar for another 2-3 days and watch the process.

These pictures were after sitting in the second jar of vinegar for 2 days.  See how cool!

 We also tried a few different eggs just to see what the differences would be:
Exp 18
L-R:  Boiled egg, boiled egg soaked in vinegar, raw egg soaked in vinegar, raw egg.

 Then came the fun part, the bouncing!  And yes they did bounce, a little at least.  Although I think the best part was when we found out at a certain height it would bust.

Nothing like some good gooey fun with some busted eggs.  My girls are already asking to do this one again.
