Billowing Balloons Experiment


W.A.L.T: Write a specific question and make a prediction for a chemical reaction
this is an experiment that we did. I hope you enjoy it
Billowing Balloons Experiment


Question
How fast will the balloon inflate when the baking soda and white vinegar mix?


Hypothesis
I thought that the balloon would inflate fairly quickly - Rohan
I thought that the balloon would inflate quite slowly - Theodore
I thought that the balloon would blow up and pop - Ashraf


Experiment
Equipment:
50 ml of white vinegar
½ a balloon of baking soda
1 Funnel
1 Teaspoon
1 balloon
1 L water bottle, fairly clean


Steps:


  1. Pour 50 ml of white vinegar into a 1 L bottle.
  2. Next scoop in baking soda into the balloon until it gets half way full.
  3. Precisely place the balloon on the 1 L
  4. bottle but don’t let any baking soda fall into the bottle.
  5. Let the baking soda fall into the 1 L bottle.
watch as the balloon inflates.


Results:

The balloon inflated because the gas released

from the chemical reaction escaped into the balloon,

making it inflate slowly.  This reaction is irreversible therefore

the sodium acetate, water and carbon dioxide cannot transfer back

to vinegar and baking soda.  

The chemical compound was:


CH3COOH + NaHCO3 → NaC2H3O2 + H20 + CO2

    (Vinegar)        (Baking Soda) (Sodium Acetate)  (Water) (Carbon Dioxide)


Conclusion:


The baking soda and vinegar inflated the balloon quite slowly.

muriwhi

Powerful waves crash along the shore As far as I can see.
The black sand burns the soles of my feet.
Everybody is overreacting.
A strong current pulls me out to sea.
People are going under.
Lifeguards are helping people.
No One can stand up.
The rips are ripping up the sand.
It is obvious why they are called that.
My back is itchy.
I have to stay in line.
Home time.

Finally.
