However, it was much larger after it was put in the vinegar for 48 hours, the circumference was 17 cm, and the mass was 89.1 grams. This occurred because of osmosis. Since the vinegar had more water molecules than the egg, it was transferring the molecules to the egg to create equilibrium; therefore, the egg became larger. This proves that the egg has a higher solute concentration then the vinegar. However, when the egg was placed in the corn syrup, its masses greatly decreased. The corn syrup has no water molecules, so to create equilibrium, the egg transferred its water molecules to the corn syrup,
