Carolina Chemonstrations®: Whoosh Bottle
Energize your class with this stimulating combustion reaction. The flames and explosive boom mesmerize students as isopropyl alcohol reacts with oxygen to produce water and carbon dioxide in a 3-gal, break-resistant polycarbonate bottle. Students engage with the demonstration by first predicting what will happen and then explaining their observations on a particulate level. Materials are sufficient for 8 demonstrations.
