During the last two weeks, we did a project about growing and shrinking eggs with different liquid
My design is repeatable by another person because following the procedure you can get these items easily done by buying the items in store or from your home. I realized that not measuring the control might have been an issue because I could have used it for later as a reference on how it shrunk or grown. Also, an improvement that I would make if doing this investigation again is measuring the plain egg’s hight, and width, so you can like the control see how it can shrink and grow to air. Some additional information that I would like to collect to have me understand more about this phenomenon would probably be measuring the syrup egg in water or making a timelapse so I can get a better understanding of what’s happening in the egg.
When I first watched the phenomenon, I thought that the egg grows and shrink due to the density of the other liquid.
My evidence indicated that the egg was growing when placed in water and shrunk in syrup
Key evidence to support this includes the egg growing is the water molecules entering the egg while the syrup had too large molecules so it couldn’t get in but push the egg smalled
Now, I believe that the egg grows and shrink because think a wall with holes as the egg and toys as the molecules the water molecules or the smaller toys can get in but large molecules or syrup molecule which are bunched up can’t get in.
This movement of matter is based upon different molecules and cell in the egg
My evidence that supports this is the yolk contains cells and the white contains molecules my evidence supports this is because when after placing the vinegar for 24 hours then placing it in the syrup in 24 hours there is a watery substance on the top of the syrup.
