PHOTO HUNTERS: HEAVY

photohunters

This week’s theme is on HEAVY.
Let’s have something way out of the box this week.
“I’m HEAVY,” said the egg with a sad face.

HEAVY02

You all don’t believe I’m HEAVY?
Can’t you see that I’m HEAVY in that glass?

HEAVY03

Gosh! I’m so HEAVY that I could barely float in the water.

HEAVY04

Don’t worry… a bit of magic in my hand
will make me not so HEAVY
and float in the water… hehe :P

HEAVY05

Here is a secret on how the egg can float.
I have stirred two teaspoons of salt into the glass of water.
Adding salt to the water puts more molecules into the water to make it denser.
The more salt you add, the denser the water becomes.
Finally it becomes denser than the egg.
This makes the egg float.

FEEL FREE TO DROP BY INSIGHT CRIZ FOR MORE PHOTOGRAPHS.

Hi Criz...

thanks for dropping by! I just got mine up..hee hee...

this egg, I thot u just switched with an old egg..coz the older the eggs, the more air they have! Didn't think it was salt that did the trick!

Also, GONG XI GONG XI YEA!!!!

Lynn said...

I love your story here. Yes, the salt in water. Like the Dead Sea where people just float and no need to swim. :)

Mickey said...

You have a wonderful way of demonstrating'Heavy'.
Most entertaining!

JesieBlogJourney said...

That's a great and creative heavy concept. Did you end up making salted eggs then?

Happy CNY to you.

My heavy is published.

Gattina said...

I don't know the salt thing, but I know if you put an egg in water and it floats it is fresh and if it sinks it's rotten. Or was it the other way around ??? Don't remember.
BTW Happy New Year to you ! Good start into the Rat year !

Queen of My Domain said...

Very Fun! I'm going to have to do that experiment with my 9 year old.
