Egg Spinning Rules
- Don’t put all your power into the spin. Why? It might cause it to sail off the table.
- Place the egg in the middle of the table. Why? Placing it near the edge of the table could cause it to fall off the table.
- Placing your arm up as a barrier to keep the egg of the table is a great idea.
- We had a hard time getting either egg to spin on its end. We tried and tried. Each time the eggs slipped to their sides.
- The cooked egg would spin in around, but we had trouble getting it to stay in place. It tended to wobble off course a little.
- The uncooked egg really didn’t like to spin. It preferred to roll. It liked to add a little flair to its roll by adding a turn at the end of the roll.
- We talked about why the uncooked egg didn’t spin well and decided that liquid inside the uncooked egg was sloshing around and causing the egg to move different ways on the inside effecting the outside movement.
- We talked about how the cooked egg doesn’t have all that liquid moving around. It is so much easier for a solid object to spin because of that.
- Then my son recorded the result of the experiment on a recording sheet.
