Appearing to suspend an egg in a very remarkable and curious manner.
Take a pint of water and dissolve in it as much common salt as it will take up; with
this brine fill a tall glass, then fill up the remaining space with plain water, pouring it in very carefully down the side of the glass, or into a spoon, to break its fall. The pure water will then float upon the brine, and in appearance, the two liquids will seem as but one. Now take another glass and
fill it with common water. If an egg is put into this, it will instantly sink to the bottom; but if, on the contrary, the egg is put into the glass containing the brine, it will sink through the plain water only and float upon that portion which is saturated with salt.Science is a key component of doing many remarkable things.
