# If a Fresh Egg is Put into a Beaker Filled with Water, It Sinks. on Dissolving a Lot of Salt in the Water, the Egg Begins to Rise and Then Floats. Why ? - CBSE Class 9 - Science

ConceptThrust and Pressure - Buoyancy

#### Question

If a fresh egg is put into a beaker filled with water, it sinks. On dissolving a lot of salt in the water, the egg begins to rise and then floats. Why ?

#### Solution

When a large amount of salt is dissolved in water, the density of salt solution becomes higher than pure water. It is because of its higher density, the salt solution exerts a greater upward buoyant force on the egg, making it rise and then float.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
