KENTUCKY (5/3/17) — How do you inflate a balloon? Our “Science Guy” Jason Lindsey and a kid scientist say not to waste your breath, they show us how to use a few ingredients from the kitchen, to inflate a balloon. 

INGREDIENTS

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Balloon
  • Empty 2 Liter Bottle

INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1:  Fill the empty 2 liter bottle half of the way with the vinegar. Describe and classify the vinegar by its observable properties.          

STEP 2:  Fill the balloon with baking soda. Describe and classify the baking soda by its observable properties.
STEP 3:  Carefully stretch the open end of the balloon around the neck of the 2 liter bottle.          

STEP 4:  Dump the baking soda, inside the balloon, into the 2 liter bottle, and observe. Did mixing the two substances result in a new substance?    

EXPLANATION
When the baking soda is mixed with the vinegar, a chemical reaction happens, which creates carbon dioxide gas. The carbon dioxide gas fills the balloon, causing the balloon to expand.
