Safely demonstrate combustion by performing the “ping pong popper” micro-scaled explosion! Students will love the loud “pop” as a spark ignites alcohol in a popper and a ping pong ball launches 20 feet across the room. Use this eye-catching demonstration to teach both combustion and piezoelectricity. Enough chemical is included to perform the demonstration more than 25 times! Teacher Demonstration Notes included. Color may vary.
Concepts: Combustion, piezoelectricity.
Time Required: 15 minutes
Materials Included in Kit:
Ethyl alcohol, 95%, 50 mL
Piezo electric igniter
Ping pong ball
Ping pong popper
Pipet, Beral-type, thin stem
HS-PS1-2. Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties.
