|1.) Spread out
some newspaper on the surface where
you will be conducting your experiment.
2.) Use your spoon (spatula) to place
a spoonful of baking soda in the empty
fill canister (have the lid ready
to be placed on the pot).
3.) Either pour some vinegar in
the film canister or use a pipette (for
less mess). Very Quickly - press the
film canister lid on the pot (make sure
it is in place and secure), turn it
upside down Very Quickly and place it
on the newspaper. Stand back and watch
If you get the timing right
the film pot will shoot up in the
air and make a loud popping sound.
Try doing this experiment with different
amounts of baking soda and white vinegar
to see what different results you
experiment explodes due to the pressure
of the gas build up inside (chemical
reaction) the container.
