Bubbled Egg Experiment
Set out a glass of water, an egg, tongs, and a candle.



Light the candle. Use tongs to hold the egg over the flame until the egg is black.





Let the egg cool down for 5 to 10 minutes.



Slowly place black egg in the glass of water and observe the reflective, silver bubble encasing the egg.





When the egg is close to the flame, a thin coat of carbon forms on the egg shell. The chemical element Carbon is black and repels water to create the reflective, silver bubble until the air dissolves into the water.
