                     Making a Vinegar and Baking Soda Rocket

Making a vinegar and baking soda rocket is one of the most popular science projects for kids. You must try this experiment in an open area.

Requirements: –

  • Duct tape
  • 3 pencils or sturdy sticks
  • An empty plastic bottle
  • Paper towel
  • 1 tbsp Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • funnel

Procedure: –

  • The pencils you have are going to be the legs of the rocket. Place each pencil onto the bottle so that it extends beyond the opening of the bottle.
  • Secure the pencils by using the duct tape making sure the rocket is stable.
  • Turn the bottle right side up and pour some vinegar in it until is half-full by using the funnel.
  • Take a paper towel and put 1 tbsp of baking soda on it.
  • Fold and wrap the paper towel to make a snug bundle of baking soda.
  • Push the bundle of baking soda into the bottle and give it a quick, hard shake.
  • Put the bottle upright on the pencils and stand back.
  • You will be amazed to see your rocket shooting pretty high.

Concept: –

When you mix vinegar with baking soda, carbon dioxide gas is released because an acid/base reaction is taking place. Vinegar is acetic acid and baking soda is a base, known as sodium bicarbonate.
