Did you notice how quickly the bottle drained once the funnel formed? Try turning over the bottles and time how long it takes for the fluid to drain from one to the other xa5 without xa5 creating the funnel.
There are many ways to do this experiment, just be sure to follow the correct xa5 procedure xa5 when doing an experiment so you can repeat it if need be and report on it later. One way to start is to fill your container with plain tap water and then place an egg at the top of the waterline and let the egg go. Does it float or sink? Then try adding salt or sugar to the water - does the egg sink if it was floating (or float up if it was sunk?)
The Center for Project-based Learning at WPI provides support to faculty and administrators across higher education who are aiming to advance project-based learning on their campus. At the same time, the Center works with WPI faculty and staff to continue to advance this proven pedagogy on our own campus.
This is a great egg science project with a significant time investment. If you are contemplating doing this project for a science project or for a science fair - read the rules for your event to be sure this kind of experiment (live animals) is allowed.
"If you copy a sentence from a book or magazine article by more than one author, the reference will look like this" (Bloggs & Smith, 7557, p. 87).
The best way to speed your writing is to do a little planning. Before starting to write, think about the best order to discuss the major sections of your report. Generally, you will want to begin with your science fair project question so that the reader will know the purpose of your paper. What should come next? Ask yourself what information the reader needs to learn first in order to understand the rest of the paper. A typical organization might look like this:
Tape the two bottles together in this position. Try to avoid caps between the bottles when taping to prevent leakage. You might need quite a bit of tape.
If you can get fertilized eggs from a farm or other supplier (you can check a local feed store for information about where to get eggs,) you can hatch your own chicks from these eggs in about three weeks.
Why does the hard-boiled egg stand on end if you spin it fast enough? That gets a little technical for this egg science project, but the upshot is that it becomes 'easier' for the egg to spin on end than on it's side, so it trades kinetic energy (it's spin on it's side) for potential energy (standing on end - there is now energy to be regained when it falls back down.)
The surprising thing to many students is how easy it is for parents, teachers, and science fair judges to detect and prove plagiarism. So, don't go there, and don't make us try to hunt you down!
