This science mission is exclusive as you’ll flip an egg inexperienced however the way it occurs could be very fascinating and an excellent demonstration experiment.
Issues you will have for the science mission.
- An egg
- Crimson cabbage
- A pan
- A pot
- A bowl
- A father or mother to assist
You’re going to make a inexperienced egg and prepare dinner it, however you’ll not be utilizing any meals coloring or something inexperienced. Allow us to get to the experiment and we will focus on the outcomes and speculation later.
Take the purple cabbage and minimize into slices as should you have been making cole slaw. You’ll not want a substantial amount of cabbage. A cup or two ought to do the trick. Place the cabbage shreds into the pot and pour in a cup of water. If you’re utilizing extra cabbage you might have considered trying slightly extra water. You do not want quite a bit. Flip in your range high and go away on excessive or a reasonably excessive warmth. Let the cabbage prepare dinner for a bit. This might take ten to fifteen minutes. You need to get the water to show a pleasant purple purple coloration from the cooked cabbage. We’ll then use the water from the cabbage. As soon as the cabbage has cooked and the water is a really darkish purple coloration you’re prepared.
Take your contemporary egg and crack it. Separate the yolk right into a small bowl and the white into slightly bigger bowl. Now take a spoonful of the purple water from the cabbage and put into the bowl along with your egg white and use the spoon or a fork to stir it up.
Warmth up your skillet or pan and place a small quantity of oil within the pan as you can be cooking the egg and must maintain it from sticking. When the pan is heated pour the coloured egg white into the pan. You’ll discover the egg white is inexperienced. You may also put the yolk on high of the egg white now to prepare dinner each collectively.
This might be cooked sunny facet up as a result of you do not need to flip it over as you need everybody to see the inexperienced coloring. When carried out you’ll be able to clearly eat the egg. There may be nothing incorrect with it as a result of the coloring was added by the cabbage.
Why did this occur? You took the purple coloring from the cabbage and put it within the egg white and it turned inexperienced. You didn’t have the yolk concerned on this. You solely added the yolk after the white was cooked to complete the whole egg.
Why did this inexperienced coloring occur? What chemical course of occurred? Was there any change within the egg shite itself?
It is a nice science mission for chemistry class in highschool.
