Product Details

Change a beaker of “orange juice” into a big, foamy, messy strawberry float! Simply mix some chemicals together in a beaker, add an acid–base indicator and a colorless solution, and stand back. A huge mountain of foam will erupt out of the beaker. This impressive demonstration is perfect when discussing the concepts of acids and bases, neutralization reactions and indicators. Teacher Demonstration Notes included.

Concepts: Acid–base indicators, neutralization.
Time Required: 10 minutes
Note: A large fiberglass demonstration tray (AP5429) is recommended.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Alconox cleaner, 350 g
Hydrochloric acid, 3 M, 1 L, 2
Methyl orange solution, 0.2%, 700 mL
Sodium bicarbonate, lab grade, 350 g

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-5: Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved.
MS-PS1-2: Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
HS-PS2-2: Use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.
HS-PS1-6: Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.
