Question: What will the solution of baking soda and vinegar do to a balloon?
Hypothesis: We think that the balloon will inflate.
1. Pour one cup of vinegar into the empty water bottle
2. Using a funnel, pour two tablespoons of baking soda into the balloon
3. Carefully, place the balloon on top of the mouth of the water bottle
4. Lift the balloon so that the baking soda falls into the water bottle
5. WATCH THE MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Make sure you have a table cloth, in case of any spills or mess.
The Science behind it:
Vinegar which is acidic ACID and baking soda which is sodium bicarbonate and is a BASE, when mixed together they produce carbon dioxide CO2 which is air and it expands the balloon that is attached to the water bottle.
In conclusion, we realized that the hypothesis was correct. The balloon did inflate.
I am in Mr. Camarra's class and I enjoy doing science experiments. I like to play tennis, and I like to play outdoors. I am really excited to show you this experiment and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
