From the outside, the hard boiled egg, soft-boiled egg and the raw egg all look and weigh the same. So how to say if an egg is hard boiled or raw? Just follow our steps and you will easily tell the difference between boiled eggs and raw or unboiled eggs without even cracking them! Smart life hacks!

What You Need:

- One cooked egg

- One raw egg

Here's how you tell the difference between a hard-boiled egg and a raw egg:


Raw or hard boiled eggs

Raw or hard boiled egg

- Spin both the eggs and see what you notice

The raw egg will spin more slowly and it will wobble! This is because the raw egg is fluid inside, whereas the hard boiled egg is solid. When you spin the raw egg, the fluid inside moves around and causes the wobbling. The hard-boiled egg has no fluid, so it doesn't wobble.

- Put your finger briefly on the eggs to stop them spinning. When you take your finger away, the raw egg will continue to spin for a few more seconds, as the fluid inside is still moving. The hard-boiled egg will stop instantly. This is because of the fact that the liquid in the raw egg was still moving when you stopped both eggs, so that movement made the raw egg begin to spin again.

Try it on your friends and family and see if they can tell the difference.
