Can You Peel A Raw Egg?

Eggs are composed of a yolk that is yellow in color and a shiny, transparent white mucus. Surrounded by a hard shell, these eggs are vulnerable to hard objects. If eggs are dropped, the protected yolk and white inside will automatically splatter. So, it is quite impossible to peel a raw or uncooked egg. However, in this experiment, peeling a raw egg will be made possible.

PROBLEM
Is it possible to peel a raw or uncooked egg? How?

HYPOTHESIS
It is not possible to peel a raw egg, as commonly known.

MATERIALS

  • Uncooked egg
  • Clear vinegar
  • Plastic jar with a lid
