And just sayin', ya'll, I really like when science experiments work; but I'm definitely, absolutely, and positively not going to be a scientist.

A Chemical Reaction:
This experiment showed that when certain substances are mixed together, they could create a new substance. This mostly was done by alchemists whose job was to find substances that, when mixed together, would form gold.
I boiled some red cabbage leaves and put it in the bottle with 3/4 cup of vinegar. I then attached the ballon that had 2 tablespoons of baking soda in it and poured it from the ballon into the cabbage-water and vinegar mixture. When the vinegar and baking soda mixed it formed three new substances: carbon dioxide, sodium acetate, and water. The carbon dioxide coming up through the vinegar caused the balloon to inflate. There was a second chemical reaction that happened when anthocyanin from the cabbage leaves I boiled interacted with the vinegar: it went from a blue color, to a pinkish color. Since the vinegar became a different substance, caused by the other chemical reaction, the anthocyanin no longer had the vinegar to interact with, so the water turned back to the blue color it was originally. (I did have a video, but it was to big to load!!)
The leftover cabbage water. ;-)
