Watch the below video to see how to do the bouncy egg experiment.
Place an egg in a plastic cup and completely cover with vinegar.
Place the cup somewhere where it doesn’t have to be moved for four days.
The vinegar will dissolve the eggshell.
After two days, use a plastic spoon to remove the egg from the cup.
Lay it down on a paper towel so that it can dry.
The eggshell will have completely dissolved.
Take the egg outdoors and from a low height gently bounce it.
- Osmosis is the process where water passes into tissues through a semi-permeable membrane.
