August 28, 2009 Experiment #1 The Use of Volumetric Glassware: The Floating Egg Problem Experiment by: Jaimin Patel, Heba A. Introduction: The goal behind this experiment is to determine the density of the egg. With the use of Sodium chloride as a substitute for lye we can indirectly measure the density of the egg. In order to accurately measure density we use volumetric glassware. Volumetric glassware accurately contains and delivers volumes of liquid. The theory behind the experiment is that lye, the substance for which sodium chloride is a substitute, was used to make soap. In order to make soap, we need to correctly determine the density of lye. You put sodium chloride in distilled water, and add an egg. When the egg floats in the solution, the densities are the same. For this experiment, the formula’s we use are Density=mass/volume. Procedure: Gathered all materials Added 1500mL of distilled water in a 5mL plastic beaker Added an egg in the water. With the egg in the water, slowly add NaCl in the
