Will vinegar when mixed with baking soda in a water bottle blow up a balloon attached to the water bottle?
Hypothesis: When baking soda (base) and vinegar (acid) are combined a gas (carbon dioxide) will be formed that will inflate a balloon attached to the top of the water bottle opening.
The Science behind it
1. Apple cider vinegar produced an increased fizz (CO2) when compared with the same amount of white vinegar although both inflated the balloons.
2. The smaller sized bottles had increased fizz (CO2) when compared to equal amounts used with a larger bottle.
3. Balloons stayed inflated because the CO2 remained trapped in the bottle which was sealed with the ballon at the water bottle opening.
4. The acid in the vinegar combined with the base in teh baking soda to make a gas called carbon dioxide
The acid in the vinegar combined with the base in the baking soda to make the gas (carbon dioxide) which then inflated the ballon.
