Grade 5 Science Experiment 4 - "Vinegar and Baking Soda, the chemical secret behind a Fire Extinguisher"
The purpose of this science fair project is to create your own fire extinguisher. The chemical process behind a fire extinguisher will be demonstrated, explored, and discussed. A fire extinguisher used in the past was made without the aid of air compression. Instead, a fire extinguisher had to reactive chemical agents. The chemical agents were vinegar and baking soda. When you combine vinegar and baking soda, carbon dioxide foam is produced. Carbon dioxide foam puts a fire out by replacing the presence of oxygen. (A fire needs oxygen in order to continue burning.)
Carbon dioxide foam can be produced when you combine the two chemically reactive agents of vinegar and baking soda.
Time it takes the vinegar and baking soda to produce carbon dioxide gas and foam
- 16.0 fluid ounce plastic bottle that has a screw cap
- Paper clip
- Tea bag
- Baking soda

Is the Pressure On To Get Your Child's Elementary School Science Project Done on Time?
If you're under pressure to get your child's elementary school science project done, you may want to take a look at "Elementary Science Project Secrets".
This e-book is a compilation of 47 unique science projects covering ten different subject areas.
All of the projects are easy-to-do, educational, and earned top scores from teachers. When this guide was released to parents it was an immediate hit!
One of the biggest advantages, if not THE biggest advantage of this book is the fact that the projects can be completed in one day -- many in less than an hour!
