How can you get carbon dioxide for an experiment?
You can make CO2 at home by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 heaping teaspoon of baking soda in a glass. This safe chemical reaction creates water and CO2.
Can you fill a balloon with CO2?
Whilst holding the balloon onto the opening of the bottle, raise up the balloon to allow the bicarbonate soda to fall into the vinegar in the bottle. The balloon rises as it fills with carbon dioxide gas!
What happens when carbon dioxide mixes with water?
Carbon dioxide dissolves in water and slowly reacts with water to produce carbonic acid.

How do you make carbondioxide at home?
Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda into the soda bottle slowly using your funnel. The baking soda and vinegar will fizz. The gas being given off is carbon dioxide. Keep adding the baking soda until there is no more fizzing.
How do you inflate a balloon with vinegar?
Use the funnel to pour vinegar into the water bottle, filling about ⅓ of the bottle. Cover the top of the bottle with the bottom of the balloon. When ready, lift the balloon and let the ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda fall into the vinegar. Watch as the mixture fizzes, bubbles, and inflates your balloon!
How do you make carbonic acid at home?
Small cup of white table vinegar (acidic pH) Small cup of distilled water (neutral pH) Small cup of baking soda/distilled water solution (basic pH) 3 pieces of red litmus paper.
How do you infuse carbon dioxide into water?
The process here is essentially the same.
- Pour a little vinegar into the bottom of the soda bottle.
- Put the balloon on the funnel and fill of baking soda.
- Put the balloon on the neck of the bottle and lower the baking soda in the bottle.
