How to Make an Egg Bounce
Name: Daija Warren Due Date: February 1st School: Lake Arbor Elementary School Grade: 6th Teacher: Mr.Debaun

Problem: How can I make an egg bounce?

Hypothesis- I think the hard-boiled egg is more likely to bounce because it is soft once you finish cooking it and the raw egg will be hard cause of the shell on it

“How to Make an Egg Bounce”

I would like to thank my mom with helping me with my science project. She has helped me with researching the internet to find my science fair project. She helped me with finding the information that is needed to do my experiment and preparing my science proposals. She also helped me with researching the following information for my research paper.

Is it possible to make an egg bounce? That was the question I asked myself. Is it really possible? An egg seems to be too fragile to do that, but after researching the internet, I have found that some interesting experiments and science fair projects that can easily be done with eggs from the refrigerator. Eggs are not only a source of protein or a part of a delicious breakfast, but eggs can also be used in various science experiments.

At one time the most creative way that eggs were was at Easter time. They were colored, dyed, and decorated. There are a number of egg science projects that can be done, such as; eggs can be made to bounce; made to float; be made to spin; or even made to be sucked in a bottle.

Eggs are known to be resilient because of their exact shape. They are light and round. The weight of an egg is distributed around the egg’s shell. The strength of an egg can be determined by testing the weight and pressure that an egg shell can absorb in the nature of the egg experiment.

A raw or hardboiled egg can be used. The density of an egg will change depending on the experiment chosen. For instance when using vinegar in an

    Fresh boiled and shelled eggs is used in this experiment. The eggs were soaked in vinegar for up to 48 hours and no less than 24. At the end of this period the eggs are dried off and mass is recorded. The eggs are then placed in distilled water. They are removed and the mass recorded. Lastly the eggs are put into corn syrup and again removed and the mass recorded.…

    This is a really cool science project. I got most of my information from sciencehound.com. I learned a lot about density and buoyancy. You can increase the density of water by adding salt. Eggs float at different levels in water depending on how much salt is added. If no salt is added, the egg just sinks to the bottom. It’s almost like doing a magic…

    Egg Drop Experiment Essay

    The lid was three centimeters so the container with the lid was fifteen centimeters. What I did was I took some fluff out of the jar. Then I placed the egg inside the container with some fluff. After that I put the egg in the fluff and put the other fluff on top of it and buried the egg in fluff. I knew that if I got the egg to stay in motion it would never be in motion. When I dropped the container the fluff protected the egg like walls. The egg did not break because the fluff acted as a block to when the container hits the ground. The fluff was pushing against the egg so the egg wouldn’t bounce around in the container and hit the walls. I dropped the egg right…

    For our project we made a wooden car that would carry our egg at least 5 meters. Our car was purple, pink and contained glitter. Miranda painted the car so the top was purple with silver glitter and the sides were pink. We also put “wings” on the side which were light purple and gave the car more character. To give the car a rider we also added a littlest pet shop dog which was glued to the front. I would have to say our car was the cutest.…

    The objective of our project was to design and build a contraption that would secure an egg from breaking upon impact from a second story window, and the contraption wieghing as least as possible while falling the fastest. We wanted to design something that would provide a lot of cushioning directly to the egg, and also provide extra cushioning to weaken the impact. After testing and submitting a design of just bubble wrap around the egg we found out that it will not be allowed. Due to this we had to make changes in order to gain originality pionts and add to the creativity. After pondering for a few minutes we came up with the idea of putting the egg in a container of some material with cushioning, and then wrap the container in bubble wrap. This suttle change was enough to gain originality points and led us to the building stage.…

    Egg Lab Report

    An egg is a model of a human because the egg has a cell membrane like humans do inside and outside of the body that let things pass through like water. We can use eggs to study the effect of changes in the external environment on the internal environment by having harsh environments like putting the egg in only alcohol and see what happens to the inside of the egg. Diffusion is the movement of a substance down its concentration gradient from a more to a less concentrated area. Meaning if there was more oxygen on one side of the membrane and the membrane was permeable to oxygen, the oxygen would pass through to the side of less oxygen. Osmosis is the movement of water across a selectively permeable membrane. Diffusion and osmosis is important for organisms because our nutrients, oxygen, and etc., need diffusion to go through compartments. I predicted that the more the concentrated the alcohol solution was the mass would increase because I thought the membrane would let alcohol through which would cause the egg to expand.…

    The objective of this project was to create a structure that will protect a raw egg and prevent it from breaking when being dropped from a minimum height of two meters. A decent hypothesis or prediction one could develop before any experimental trials would be as follows. The structure that provides the longest duration of impact between the falling egg the ground will provide the desired results of an undamaged egg. The duration of time in which the ground applies a force to the egg carrying structure is referred to as impulse. The longer the span of impact time, the more mild the force acting upon the egg.…

    We did this experiment by starting out with a regular egg. We measured it by wrapping a string around the egg and measuring the length to find the circumference. We took the egg and put it in 100 mL of a particular liquid (this was the manipulated variable in the experiment). After letting it soak for two days, we remeasured the circumference. We repeated this multiple times with different liquids and recorded the data each time. We would also record the amount of liquid leftover in the cup using a graduated cylinder for most of the labs.…

    The goal of the lab was to make a contraption that if an egg was dropped from about 18 ft it wouldn’t break or even crack. We tried to absorb the force of the egg so that it wouldn’t hot the ground with too much energy. The contraption had a net made of yarn to catch the egg and not have it bounce too much; it was slanted slightly so the egg could roll down into a soft pile of cotton that lined the bottom of the box.…
