Have you ever wondered how much salt it takes an ocean to float any substance? Well i have and i wanted to figure that out. Well the thing that makes something float is called density. Density is the weight or mass something has. The weight of salt is the ocean if it was in sodium chloride would be about 120 million tons. Which got me wondering about how much would make an egg float.
This floating happens because of all the different masses. Mass is mostly based on how many atoms a substance has. Mass also helps determine density. Another thing mass also determines is volume. The more the mass the more the matter. Matter is the space something takes up. Or like a measurement.
During this experiment you must wash your hands after you touch the raw eggs, because they can have salmonella. Salmonella is a type of bacteria. This can be inside of an uncracked egg. Although this may affect the egg it does not affect the hen. With proper care of the egg like refrigerating and cooking can help prevent the salmonella from forming.

Yes the differences in the salts density will affect how much the salt floats. The dilution with the most salt will be the most dense. This is also buoyancy because the egg is floating in a liquid. I also thi9nk the one with the most volume will float the most.
Did you know that saltwater is more dense than fresh water? The salt adds a lot more volume. Therefore salt water has more volume than freshwater. Volume is the amount of space or a measurement of mass. Volume is mainly used to measure liquids. It can also measure how loud a sound is. The symbol for volume is m3. Or also as cubic
