Surprisingly, It’s Not Hot Enough To Fry An Egg
At some point in life, we all try a few home-based science experiments right? (Hopefully you've never tried the "charging your phone in the microwave" one. Spoilers: it doesn't work. It's very bad). In the summertime, one of the most popular experiments is frying an egg on pavement.
It has been HOT in the Quad Cities this week. You definitely shouldn't be leaving kids or pets inside cars; you might've even reconsidered leaving the house altogether if you could help it. But, as it turns out, it's not hot enough to fry an egg – which I guess, in some ways, is a comfort.
We tried it this week, just to get an idea of how the weekend would be. Here's how it went:
According to the interwebs, the minimum temperature for a surface to be hot enough to cook an egg is 130 degrees. At that temperature, it'll take about 20 minutes to cook.
Unfortunately, it seems Friday might've been the tamest day to try this; the rest of the weekend is supposed to be hotter. Let us know if you manage to make it happen!
