Balloons help to organize a feast by making it brighter and more colorful. A simple chemistry experiment will help you inflate balloons without any physical effort.
Children will enjoy the entertainment of inflating balloons with soda and vinegar.
For the process we will need:
a plastic bottle
a pouring funnel
1. Prepare the vinegar and baking soda.
2. First, add about half a glass of vinegar into the bottle.
3. Then through the funnel add baking soda into a balloon.
4. Put the balloon on the neck of the bottle.
5. Holding the balloon at the neck of the bottle firmly, flip it over. The baking soda falls into the vinegar, and a rapid chemical reaction begins, which resembles a volcanic eruption. It produces carbon dioxide, creating pressure that inflates the balloon.
6. There is one “but”, though – carbon dioxide is heavier than air, and your ball will not fly up, but will fall to the floor (only balloons with helium have the ability to fly up). But sometimes a lot of balls are required for decoration of the room, and not to fly in the air.
Balloons are an attribute of any holiday or a festive event. Bright balloons create a light-hearted atmosphere and a touch of joie de vivre.
