"Egg in a flask" experiment
How to put an egg into a narrow-necked bottle
To amuse your family and friends, show them this entertaining experiment!
Reagents and equipment:
- a boiled egg;
- a conic flask;
From the point of view of chemistry, the combustion of matches is the oxidizing reaction of cellulose by the oxygen in the air to carbon dioxide and water. In any combustion reaction, heat is released into the surrounding environment.
This warms up the air, which expands and leaves the flask. If you block the opening with an egg, a difference of pressures is created in the bottle, as the air starts to cool and compress, and the egg is pulled into the bottle.
Observe safety rules when working with fire.
Warning! Substances of this experiment are toxic and highly dangerous for your health. Do not try this at home. Only under professional supervision.
