Introduction: Baking Soda Bomb
Baking soda bombs are a pretty simple science experiment. You mix a base (baking soda) with an acid (vinegar) and get carbon dioxide gas, hence the bubbles. Here I will show you how to make them.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
You will need the following:
- Baking soda
- A plastic bag
- A square-ish piece of paper
- A spoon or other scooping mechanism
Step 2: Place the Baking Soda on the Paper
Place a spoonful of baking soda on the paper. Around 1 tablespoon will do.
Step 3: Wrap Up the Baking Soda
Wrap up the baking soda in the paper. I suggest thirds, so that the baking soda is on the middle third and the other ones are on top.
Step 4: Fill the Bag With Vinegar
Fill the bag up with vinegar. I used 3/4 cup vinegar.
Step 5: Add the Baking Soda
Put the baking soda in the bag of vinegar and hold it above. Try not to let it touch the vinegar. Close your bag, still hold the baking soda, and prepare to release it.
Step 6: EXPLOSION!
Shake the bag as hard as you can, then throw it somewhere! It should now explode.
