Safely demonstrate combustion With the Piezoelectric Ping Pong Popper Thermodynamics Demonstration Kit by performing the “ping pong popper” micro-scaled explosion. This eye-catching display teaches both combustion and piezoelectricity.
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.
Concepts: Combustion, piezoelectricity.
Time Required: 15 minutes
Materials Provided: Piezoelectric igniter, ping pong ball, popper assembly, ethyl alcohol.
