Egg that keeps on spinning!

You are here:

What you need

  • 1 raw egg

STEPS:

  1. Spin the raw egg on a surface vigorously for few minutes.
  2. Stop the egg when it is spinning and let go of it immediately
  3. It will start spinning all by itself again!

Does the same thing happen with a boiled egg?

The raw egg has liquid inside it that spins when we spin the egg.

When we stop the egg from spinning, the liquid inside is still spinning which makes the whole egg spin again.
