Science people!! Help am I right?

So yea in Science we did a lab on osmosis. So this is what we did.

We have an egg in a beaker full of vinegar. This is here so we can deshell it. Ok So it gets deshelled and stuff. Before putting it in vinegar we took the mass.
The next day the vinegar is gone and soaked in then we add corn syrup in it. We wait for 48 hours. Make observations.

After 48 hours we look at the egg and we see the yolk and then we take the mass of the egg. The mass decreased,

Then here is the question.

What does this have to do with osmosis,diffusion and equilibrium. Am I right?

This has to do with osmosis because osmosis is the diffusion of water through a semi permeable membrane, and there were more molecules in the egg because of the vineger so to reach equilibrium the egg had diffusion into the corn syrup and that is why the mass decreased

I would specify that more.
Osmosis is the diffusion of water through a semi-permeable membrane -- ok
there were more molecules in the egg -- what kind of molecules? Instead of putting it that way, I would say that the vinigar was denser than the fluid inside the egg (or that the egg white had a higher concentration of water, which sounds a bit better to me). This caused water to diffuse out of the egg and into the vinigar in order to reach equilibrium. The decreased amount of water in the egg caused its mass to decrease.
movement of water from areas of lower molecular density to higher, so basically yes.
essentially, yes you are correct
