You all know the wonderful reaction you get when you mix baking soda with vinegar. Well we took it up a notch and created a full fledged experiment with it! Part of our chemistry curriculum is studying the scientific method and performing an experiment. Sprite wanted to test three types of vinegar and see which one would create the greatest reaction.
We used our graduated cylinders to measure out equal portions of vinegar
and baking soda
Although her hypothesis was wrong, she did learn more about vinegar’s reactions. We also made the red cabbage litmus test to compare the acidity of each type of vinegar.
This was a really easy and practical experiment for us to do! I consider it a success. She took detailed notes and wrote up a nice lab report.
