Background – Kitchen Chemistry: The Baking Soda and Vinegar Reaction

A reaction that is endothermic will take place at a much slower rate because there are always some warmer molecules in the mixture. When we warm up the chemicals we raise the average temperature and a lot of the molecules can then react. When you mix bread dough the mix usually gets noticeably warmer after you put in all the ingredients. This is probably safe to try out at home with some adult help.

The difference between baking soda and washing soda is water and carbon dioxide. Seriously. Baking soda’s chemical makeup is NaHCO3 (1 sodium, 1 hydrogen, 1 carbon, and 3 oxygen molecules). Washing soda’s chemical makeup is Na2CO3 (2 sodium, 1 carbon, and 3 oxygen molecules). When baking soda is heated up to high temperatures, it breaks down to become washing soda, water steam, and carbon dioxide.

Experiment #2: Balloon Expansion (Quantitative?)
The “classic” experiment is to place a balloon over the soda bottle, shake it up, and measure the diameter (or volume) of the balloon. Most people think this is a very quantitative experiment because you can get a number out of this. But is it a “good” experiment? Maybe, but is it always easy to blow up a balloon the first time? Remember what you always do before trying to blow-up a balloon….stretch it out. And is the first time a balloon is blown-up the same as the second, third, fourth…etc? Probably not. And what happens when you blow-up a balloon? Isn’t it more difficult to blow it up at the beginning and end then in the middle? So, the ballon inflation experiment may be good, but it may lead to inaccuracies. The Ashbrook kids decided to do a different experiment….volume displacement.
