Turn your kitchen into a chemistry laboratory with this very simple science experiment! Acids -- such as vinegar -- and foundations -- such as baking soda -- are particular sorts of compounds that generally respond with one another to form something entirely new: carbon dioxide gas. So the bubbles you see are full of carbon dioxide gas that generates all of the foamy fizz!
Measure 1Assemble your components.
Measure Two Scrub your baking sheet or dish pan using an even coating of baking soda.
Take an eye dropper, pipette, or even a straw to trickle vinegar on top of every color fall. And voila -- chemistry on the job! Experiment by adding more vinegar or color. Just how many bubbly eruptions can you create simultaneously?
