What happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar inside of Ziploc bag? “Science Guy” Jason Lindsey with Hooked on Science says, you get a chemical reaction that creates an explosion. Make sure an adult is present to supervise.
Plastic zippered bag
STEP 1: Tear a paper towel into 4 equal pieces. Using one of the pieces, pour 2 tablespoons of baking soda into the center of the paper towel square. Fold the square into a smaller square so the baking soda is inside.
STEP 2: Fill the plastic zippered bag 1/4th of the way with vinegar.
STEP 3: Drop the paper towel square into the plastic bag. Hold the bag over a trash can, close it and observe.
When you mixed the baking soda with the vinegar you caused a chemical reaction that created carbon dioxide gas. The carbon dioxide gas caused the bag to expand and eventually pop. Go to hookedonscience.org for more experiments that might get you “Hooked on Science.”
