Fizzy Balloons!

Watch a bubbly chemical reaction inflate a balloon with invisible carbon dioxide gas.

The Science Behind the Fun:

The scientific name for baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. Kitchen vinegar is diluted acetic acid. When mixed together, these two chemicals react to form some new chemicals, including carbon dioxide gas, which inflates the balloon. We know a reaction is happening because we can see bubbles forming, the bottle feels cold, and the balloon inflates with the invisible gas.

Protocol:

Step 1: Pour 1/3 cup vinegar into the soda bottle. Step 2: Hold the mouth of the balloon open and use a spoon to pour 3 tsp. or so of baking soda into the balloon. This takes two people, one to hold the balloon open and one to add the soda. Step 3: Shake the soda down into the “bulb” or the main part of the balloon. Carefully stretch the mouth of the balloon completely over the mouth of the bottle, keeping the main part of the balloon off to one side, so the baking soda isn’t dumped into the bottle until you’re ready. Step 4: Holding the mouth of the balloon on the bottle, shake the soda into the bottle, all at once.


Materials:

  • Medium-sized balloon
  • An empty 16 oz soda or water bottle
  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Spoon

About the Author:

Liz Lee Heinecke has loved science since she was old enough to inspect her first butterfly.

After working in molecular biology research for ten years and getting her master’s degree, she left the lab to kick off a new chapter in her life as a stay-at-home mom. Soon she found herself sharing her love of science with her three kids as they grew, journaling their science adventures on her KitchenPantryScientist website.

Her desire to spread her enthusiasm for science to others soon led to a regular segment on her local NBC affiliate, an opportunity to serve as an Earth Ambassador for NASA, and the creation of an iPhone app, with the goal of making it simple for parents to do science with kids of all ages, and for kids to experiment safely on their own.

You can find her at home in Minnesota, wrangling her kids, writing for her website, updating the KidScience app, teaching microbiology to nursing students, singing, playing banjo, painting, running, and doing almost anything else to avoid housework.

Liz graduated from Luther College and received her master’s degree in bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
