Chemical Reactions at Home

Postby knapplc » Wed Apr 04, 2007 12:45 pm

My daughter was asking about chemical reactions last night while watching TV, and I wanted to show her one so I did the old Vinegar and Baking Soda trick - which wasn't all that impressive to someone who has seen soda fizz in a glass before. :-b

So I was wondering, does anyone else know about a fun chemical reaction I can show my daughter, that won't blow my house apart or stain us both blue or something? :-b

I could, but I was thinking of something a bit less vulgar. She's only four. ;-) :-b

Ah I see.

Well, if you have a spare glass baby bottle, you could show her a vacuum.

If you find take an hardboiled egg (with the shell removed), stand the bottle up, toss a lit match in the bottle, and quickly put the egg on top of the bottle (the egg should normally be big enough to just sit on top of the opening), the heat should create a vacumm and suck the egg into the bottle, although the hole is too small.

I think...

Better google this one for exact instructions. ;-)

This is a great science experiment that you can do with the kids.

---------------------------------------------

Materials Needed:

An apple juice bottle or cider bottle
Newspaper
Matches
A hard boiled egg
Sauce Pot

-------------------------------------------------

Instructions:

Wash and dry the juice bottle.
Peel the egg.
Cut or tear the newspaper into strips.
Place the strips into the juice bottle.
Light the strips on fire. Adult supervision required.
When the paper starts to burn, place the egg over the opening of the bottle.
Wait.....keep waiting....
The egg will be pressed inside the bottle with a loud pop!
The pressure in the bottle was reduced when the fire used up the oxygen inside. The force of the air pressure outside of the bottle, pushed the egg inside.
