How Much Weight Can Eggs Hold???


Our project is on how much weight can eggs hold. So we first

researched the common egg itself. The most important part of an

egg is the germ. You can also call it the nucleus. Next is the shell.

The shell is made out of two layers. One of the layers is called the

mammilary layer. The shell membrane is located just inside the

shell. The shell is mostly made up of calcium carbonate. Now we

go to the egg white. The white of an egg is made up of four parts.

The four parts are thin white, thick white, inner thin white, and inner

thick white. As we go on, we studied the yolk. The yolk is located in

the yolk sac. Another name for the yolk sac is vitelline membrane.

The yolk is some type of embryo. Chalazas help save the yolk from

damage. Thats all our research on the common egg.

The next important subject relating to our project is balance.

the first thing we read was that a balance is a device that weighs

substances. But, instead of using a balance for our project we are

using eggs. Still, we are going to research the balancing device.

The easiest balance has a horizontal bar balanced on a thin edge

of metal or some other thing. Balance is occurred in many ways.

For example, nature and buisness. Now let me explain to you how

the balancing device works. First, many different things are placed

in pans. (Most balances use pans.) The heavier side of the balance

goes down when something is placed on it.

Mass had something to do with weight and since we are

putting weight on eggs we reasearched it. Mass is often known as

the amount of matter that is in or on an object. Another name or

mass is inertia. Mass can't be destroyed. Mass can't be created.

Mass is a law of conservation. The mass of an object is not really

the same as weight because its weight changes with altitude.

Weight is the second to the last part to our reasearch. Weight

is the gravitational force put on an object by the planet on which

the object is located. The weight of an object depends on.................

1) the distance from the object to the center. 2) The mass of the

object. 3) The mass of the planet. There are many different

meanings of weight. Concerning to our project, we just hope that

our objects we place on the eggs aren't that much over weight.

Being overweight means weighing more than the average for a

certain height.

Finally, we reasearched the eggs we are going to use for our

project. The name of the eggs are called Nichols Eggs. They are

grade AA eggs. The egg size is small. The eggs were packed in

Arcadia, California. The egg shell color is white. We then looked

at the Nutritional Facts. The facts are Protein: 10%, Vitamin A: 4%,

Vitamin C: 0%, Calcium: 2%, Iron 4%, Calories: 60, Cholestrol:

54%, and Sodium: 2%.

We also did about three pages of research on chickens. So

heres a little bit about them since they lay eggs. All American class

chickens lay brown eggs. Most English class chickens lay white

eggs. People in the world eat 600 billion eggs every year!!! Eggs

are good source of protein. They also contain a large amount of

cholestrol. We had more information but it wasn't really related

to our project so im not typing it.
