Default Osmosis

Yes, I have done this profect before. It invovles two actions called diffusion and osmosis. What will happen if you use vinegar is that the vinegar will diffuse through the egg shell, which is a fancy way of saying that the egg shell is dissovled. This will make the egg shell almost completely see-through and squishy. This happenes because vinegar is very acidic. An egg shell is selectivley permeable, meaning that an egg shell has many tiny microscopic holes in it, allowing the vinegar to pass through it.
