What kind of salt is being used in the floating egg experiment? (Table/Iodized/Sea salt?)
Question Date: 2019-04-02
Answer 1:

You can use table salt or sea salt. I recommend you to read the following questions-answers that we already have on our database, so you will get the full information about the experiment. You will also learn that in order for the egg to float, you will need to have the right conditions of density for the fluid in which the egg will float , and also the condition of the egg (fresh or not fresh egg).
