Poppin' Science

We had a fantastic science lesson exploring the formation of new materials and how these changes are usually irreversible. We used effervescent vitamin tablets and water to create carbon dioxide. We then manipulated the amount of new gas made by changing the amount of tablets used. We used the force from the gas produced to pop the lid of the tablet container. We found the more tablets we used, the more gas was produced and therefore the pressure inside the container built quicker, popping the lid with more force and at quicker speeds! We had a poppin good time!
