Hi, this is my first instructable, but hopefully a reasonable one. In this guide I will show you how to make a Grenade out of vinegar, baking soda, some foil, a steel nut, some tape, and finally a pair of film canisters.
Part of the criteria for my project was that my 'Grenade' had to be transportable, rather than the more traditional rockets which started the reaction by being inverted. I wanted mine to be able to be inverted, and even lightly shaken (not too hard though).
It is important to note that the person weilding a chainsaw-bayonet in my profile picture is not me!
Step 1: Step one - acquiring the materials
For this instructable you will need the following items:
Some vinegar (enough to half fill 1 canister, but more if you intend to repeat)
Some baking Soda, ie bicarbonate of soda (again, enough to half fill 1 canister)
Some ordinary kitchen aluminium foil - about 2 square inches per grenade
Some tape - you will need something strong enough to make a decent seal, I used something resembling insulation tape from my dad's workshop
Something heavy and uneven - I used a steel nut
A pair of standard film canisters - I got mine from a photography centre down the road
