How To Do Simple Chemistry Experiments

Chemistry experiments don't always have to be complicated. The video will show you how to blow your friends away with simple chemistry experiments!

In this video, I am going to show you how to do some simple chemistry experiments. For this, you will need some vinegar, some Bicarbonate of Soda, a small dish, and a spoon. Right.

We need to start by putting some Bicarbonate of Soda in our dish. You will only need about a teaspoon full. Pop it in the middle, and then this is the fun bit--we are going to add our vinegar and see what happens.

You will not need much, just a little bit, and you will see, straightaway, it starts fizzing. If you add a bit more, it will fizz over the dish. Now, using the same principle, we are going to do an interesting way of blowing up a balloon.

Now, for this experiment, again, we will need vinegar and Bicarbonate of Soda, but we will also need a drinks bottle, a funnel, a balloon, and a peg. Now, you need to begin by filling your balloon with the Bicarbonate of Soda. We need to use our funnel; fix the balloon on the end.

If you do not have a funnel, do not worry. You can always use the top of a bottle, so just cut it about there. Then, we just need to spoon in our Bicarbonate of Soda.

There we go. Once you've put the Bicarbonate in, just pull the funnel out, shake it down into the bottom of the balloon, and then use your peg to seal it, like that, so none of the Bicarbonate can come out. This is what your balloon should look like.

Now, the next thing to do is place your bottle and fill it with some vinegar. You do not need to fill it all the way up; that much in the bottom. Now, make sure your peg is very secure, then fix the top of the balloon to the neck of the bottle.

Make sure it's a good seal. Now, all we need to do is take off the peg, lift up the balloon, and, hopefully, it should be blown up. There it goes.

That is how to do simple chemistry experiments.
