What is a good scientific title that I can use for the following experiment?

The experiment is rather simple: seeing the effects of certain drinks on egg shells, a simple way of illustrating the effects of such foods and drinks on the enamel of teeth and the general tooth decay caused by acidity, not bacterial activity. Several eggs will be placed in different cups, each with the same volume of different items. The egg that has the most deteriorated surface will identify which drink is the worst. The question is, what title could I give such an experiment?

A title could be, "The effect of various liquids on eggshell enamel". Another one could be,"Common beverages and their effects on eggshell enamel". The title should hint to the reader of your experiment just what it is you will be doing during the course of your research. You have to remember that when writing your experiment, it is the problem that must be very concise when you state it. Also, I noticed that you do not mention a control group in your description. Hopefully, one egg is not getting any type of experimental beverage and can serve as the control group, as a comparison.

I understand what you're asking for here, and I know the kind of title you probably need. I can't tell whether you're in high school or college, so I'm not sure if you can get by with something a little more fun in terms of wordplay.  Some words to play with, it seems to me, would include: erosion, corrosion, dental erosion, acid erosion, acidity, effects, and operation.   So, how about something like this--Can I Get You a Beverage?:  The Effects of Acid Erosion on Eggshells.  The title would be stronger if a hint as toyour findingswere previewed in it somewhere, and there are other kinds of catchy beverage-related sayings you might lead with, as well.  How about "Coffee, Tea, or...(fill in the blank)." Hope that's enough to get you started, anyway.  Interesting experiment, by the way!
