The pupils of Fifth and Sixth Class conducted a week-long experiment into the effect of various acids and liquids on egg shells. We tested eggs in four different conditions: white vinegar, lemon juice, Coca Cola and water (a control condition). We found that the first three liquids softened and dissolved the egg shells. The egg in water remained unaffected.
