Product Details

Liven up your lesson plan on thermodynamics with this entertaining display of culinary wizardry. In an aluminum pan, add water to the “specially formulated” Flinn calcium oxide, and stir. Crack open an egg and pour it in the second pan. Place it over the solution and presto, now you’re cooking! Your fried egg will be ready in no time. An ideal introduction to exothermic reactions and heats of solution. Must be performed on a heat-resistant surface.

Concepts: Exothermic reactions, heats of reaction.
Time Required: 20 minutes
