Bottle Rockets and Exploding Bags

To finish our topic on reversible and irreversible reactions Yr.6 braved the rain and headed to the playground.  There they used bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to create chemical, irreversible reactions.  Firstly they used sandwich bags to contain the carbon dioxide produced in the chemical reaction.  This caused the bag to blow up really tightly Continue reading
