Thar she blows

Postby Enzo » Wed Sep 11, 2019 1:42 am

For some reason, Ammonium Dichromate popped into my head. Remember this stuff from school? A cone shaped pile of it makes a nice little volcano. My teacher made a cone shaped prop of a volcano and filled the crater with the chemical. But anyway, it is a fun reaction.

We of the Advance Chemistry course did an alchimists' show for our once for the chool. the colacano played some crucial role in some crucial twist of the conwoluted story line, but I've forgotten exactly how it went. Super important, anyway. And super beautiful. We were generous with our dichromate....

Neat! No, we didn't have that in school. Sure beats the heck out of baking soda & vinegar for volcano effect.

Soda bottle full of vinegar. Take a spoonful of baking soda and wrap it up in a piece of tissue paper. Drop the tissue roll into the bottle and hold your thumb over the hole, sprays everywhere.
