Burp In A Bag
Learn how to make a burp in a bag with this chemical reaction science experiment that is easy, fun, and loud.
- Ziplock sandwich baggie
- Safety goggles
- Put about one tablespoon of baking soda onto a square of tissue.
- Fold the tissue into a little bundle and secure with tape.
- Head outside as the next step can get a little messy.
- Add about a half cup of vinegar to the ziplock sandwich baggie.
- Drop your tissue bundle of baking soda into the bag and zip the bag closed quickly.
- Toss and observe as your burp in a bag grows and eventually pops!
How it Works:
The vinegar and baking soda create a chemical reaction that releases carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide gas builds up in the ziplock bag until the pressure causes the bag to pop.
Make This A Science Project:
Test different types of ziplock bags and brands to see if there are any observable differences. Try increasing or decreasing the amounts of baking soda and vinegar.
