## How deep can an egg go underwater?

The first egg imploded at around 416 feet below sea level. Eggs are porous, which means that air and moisture can pass through the shell. So in this experiment, diver Jim Varnum spray-painted the right egg to seal it.

## What will happened if you cracked an egg 60ft below the surface of the ocean provide a scientific explanation?

A cracked egg on land might make a big mess, 60 feet below the surface of the ocean, the pressure on the egg is 2.8 times atmospheric pressure, and it holds it all together like an invisible egg shell.

Can you break an egg underwater?

And the entire time, the egg remains intact, looking like a little yellow ball floating around. The egg whites at one point begin to separate a bit from the yolk, forming a sort of tail, but nothing ever detaches.

### What happens if you crack an egg in space?

When they cracked the egg in the microgravity environment, it stayed inside the shell, even when held upside down. The egg had to physically be removed from the shell so that the team could take a look at how it behaved in the air.

### How high does it take to break an egg?

Usually, it takes a little more than 5 ½ pounds of force to crack an eggshell — much less than the weight of a human being — but the precise amount of force needed depends on the direction in which that force is applied and how much the force is distributed (or not) over the surface of the shell.

What happens if I put an egg in water?

Leave the egg in the water for 24 hours. Osmosis will occur; that is, the water will migrate from the side of the membrane where water molecules are abundant (i.e. outside the egg) to the side where water molecules are less abundant (inside the egg). After 24 hours, the egg will be plump again!

#### Why does pressure increase as you go deeper underwater?

At any depth in the ocean, the weight of the water above pushes on any object below it. With every foot an object descends into the ocean, more water is pushing down and against it, and more pressure is exerted upon that object.

#### What are eggs in the ocean called?

These balls of papery, veined, little eggs are whelk eggs, large, slow-moving sea snails that live in our waters.

How high can an egg fall without breaking?

700 feet
On August 22, 1994, David Donoghue threw an egg out of a helicopter onto a golf course in the UK, from a height of 213 meters (700 feet). He now has the record for the longest egg drop without breaking in the world (all without an outside structure for added protection!).

## What is the maximum force an egg can withstand?

Testing by SPS found a wide range of maximum loads from ~100 lb to some as high as +300 lbs for standard, large eggs. Explain to the audience that the reason the egg can withstand such forces is because the foam decreases the pressure the egg experiences.

## What happens if you leave an egg in water for 24 hours?

What will happen if you put an egg in water for 24 hours?

Leave the egg in the water for 24 hours. The water will migrate from the side of the membrane where water molecules are abundant (outside the egg) to the side where water molecules are less abundant. After 24 hours, the egg will be plump again. Share your results.
