Lava Lamp

This is a fun, beautiful and entertaining chemical experiment that can easily be repeated at home. All reagents are in almost every kitchen, and if not, they can be bought at any grocery store. I'll show you how to make a kind of lava lamp, but unlike the real one, it will start working immediately and will not require heat for of the reaction.

It will be required

  • Food soda.
  • Vinegar table.
  • Sunflower oil.
  • Food coloring - the color to your taste.
Capacity - any glass jar. For lighting, I will use a LED flashlight.

Making a chemical lava lamp

Take a tablespoon of soda and pour it on the bottom of the jar. It is necessary that the whole bottom is covered with soda.

The principle of operation is simple: vinegar is heavier than oil and therefore the bubbles first sink to the bottom. Touching the bottom, the reaction of acetic acid with soda occurs, resulting in carbon dioxide bubbles, which pull the bubble up. Reaching the top, carbon dioxide comes out and the bubble drops to the bottom again. So the cycle repeats for a certain time, until the reaction of vinegar and soda is completely completed. PS: You can use several dyes at once, mixed in different containers with vinegar. And pour them at the same time. It will look very cool.
