Balloon Blow Up Research

Have you ever wondered if a balloon can self inflate? How big will the balloon get when different acids are used? If the vinegar reacts to the baking soda more, will the balloon blow up more? The hypothesis is that the balloon with the vinegar and baking soda will inflate more. It needs to be explored because different acids react differently with the baking soda. It’s important because the balloon will blow up different heights. Other people would want to know which acid blows the balloon up more. Mixing the acid and the base is another form of a chemical reaction. The acid, the base, and the importance of the materials are the different subjects in the experiment.
The first variable, in the experiment, is the acid. The acid is the type

The base is a powder that will react to the acid. The base is the baking soda, a main ingredient in this experiment. The baking soda has a ph level of 9. Since the baking soda has such a high ph level it has a strong acid base.This research helps answer the question by knowing how the base will react to the different acids. The final topic, also in the experiment, is the importance of the materials. The acid with the lowest ph level will be the highest acid that works better than the other acids. Higher acids have more hydrogen ions. The baking soda base is a high ph and soaks up hydrogen ions. Based on the results of testing the various liquids will help determine which ph level is best to be used. The research helps the answer what is important with all of the acidic materials that will be used to make this project. The acid, the base, and the importance of the materials have now been researched. To find the difference between the types of acids, while using the same base, you must know the ph levels of each acid. How big will the balloon get when different acids are used? The balloon with the vinegar and baking soda will inflate more since we know vinegar has a low ph. Learning about bases and acids are basically a gas and chemical reaction. Understanding how the acid and base react to each other will help you to know how a self inflating balloon
