Independent Variable In Vinegar Egg

Decent Essays
Over three days, we tested what would happen to an egg after leaving in various liquids over a 24-hour period. Before letting the egg submerge in vinegar overnight the initial weight of the egg was 66.6 grams. We thought that after leaving the egg in vinegar the shell of the egg would get softer. The independent variable is the vinegar and the dependent variable is the egg. We believed that the egg would be softer; because we saw the vinegar bubble once we put the egg in it. When we came back the second day we saw the egg looked like it enlarged, the shell looked like it was cracking, and felt bouncy. The egg weighed more than before, it weighed 80.23 grams. Our data supported the hypothesis because the shell wasn’t as hard as the day before. These days’ data was a hypotonic solution because there was no met movement of water, therefore the egg enlarged. On day two we recorded the data, then we poured the vinegar out of the cup and added distilled water in, to leave overnight. We predicted the egg would get softer, bigger and bouncier than before. Our independent variable was the distilled water and dependent variable was our egg. We thought the egg would get bigger through deductive reasoning because …show more content…
We came up with the hypothesis that the egg would expand or break. The independent variable for this would be the corn syrup and the egg will be the dependent variable. We believed the egg would expand, because looking at what the other liquids, the made the egg expand. When the fourth day came around we observed that the egg had a dent, it felt very soft and felt lighter than before. It now weighed 64.92 grams, just a few grams less than the initial weight. The data did not support our hypothesis because it did the opposite of expanding, it got smaller. This was a hypertonic solution because the syrup just went into the egg, which caused the egg to swell and

    Egg Carton Hypothesis

    Introduction Egg cartons can be made from foam, plastic, or recycled paper; they are designed to keep eggs from breaking when they are transported from one place to another. Sadly, they do a very poor job of keeping eggs safe if a carton of eggs is accidently dropped. Nobody likes it when they buy a carton of eggs only to accidently drop it on the way home. Finding most of their eggs broken and egg yolk leaking everywhere when they open the carton. I decided to try and figure out if another type of material could work to protect an egg from a fall better than a normal egg carton.…

    The distilled water and 10% sucrose solutions made the eggs gain weight because they are hypotonic solutions. A hypotonic solution is any solution that has a lower osmotic pressure than another solution. The distilled water passed through the semi-permeable membrane the most. The 20%, 30%, 40%, and the unknown sucrose solutions made the eggs lose weight because they are hypertonic solutions. A hypertonic solution is any solution that has a higher osmotic pressure than another solution.…

    They were followed by both brands of almond milk. This indicates that the non-animal dairy products contain less protein per serving than the animal sourced milk products. This coincides with findings by (REF), which stated that non-dairy drinks were low in proteins, vitamins and minerals, despite this, consumers often purchase milk substitutes with the illusion that it is more nutritious than animal milks. However, plant based milk beverages cannot adequately replace animal sourced milk on their own, especially in infants, as it could lead to nutritional deficiencies (REF). The least expensive appeared the Scotsburn 2% milk, at 4.15$ however this price was likely due to a sale, as the other brand at an other store was 6.24$.…

    In this experiment the albino plants were cc: or homozygous recessive, Cc was heterozygous, and CC was homozygous dominant. Even under the absolute perfect condition albino corn can only survive several weeks because they have a limited amount of chlorophyll to absorb light. We could not use these albino plants to produce more offspring because they have codoline, which means they only grow for a little bit because of starch. What can help solve deviation in our experiments, is by using the Chi-Square test, which is illustrated in figure 2, 3, and 4. This is by using observed values, expected values, deviation, deviation 2, and the sum.…

    This lab could be improved by using 2 different eggs, as the data seemed inaccurate when placing a hypotonic egg into a solution of corn syrup made the egg hypertonic, because there wasn’t a proper start weight in the egg when placed in the second solution.
