Step 1: Get the Parts
1 half cup of vinegar (double for bigger proportions.)
1 tablespoon of Salt (double for bigger proportions.)
2 bowls (plastic, takeout containers...nothing expensive.)
4/5 batteries with accompanying holders (double AA, non-rechargeable, with about 1 volt left in each-you may need 5 if you only have 1 volt per.)
Coins: Quarters, Pennies (Find one dated before 1982.) (Pennies are more successful...believe me.)
Copper Tape (Only if you can't find a penny or don't want to.)
2 aligator clip jumper wires (unless you are using copper tape.)
Step 2: Transfer.
Step 3: Assemble.
Step 4: Add and Solute. (Pronounced Sa-loot)
"DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT A REST!!!"
"YOU MUST KEEP AN EYE ON THE SOLUTION TO PREVENT THE QUARTER FROM TURNING BLACK!"
"STAND STRAIGHT PRIVATE!"
About a minute in you will see a reaction start to occur. These bubbles indicate that, not only is you thing working, Hydrogen bubbles are forming.
If you are using a penny, the quarter may not turn black. This is because the copper is so potent that it sank to the bottom of the solution. To fix this, un-tape where the penny was and tape it to the other side and do the same with the quarter. Start your timer at 6:00 minutes and let it sit.
Step 5: Done.
