What about the simple chemistry experiments with everyday materials? Insider Monkey recently published an article in which we can find the great answers for this question. As for me, I have never been good at chemistry, therefore I haven1t liket it either. I like history, languages, philosophy and literature. But I also like check and be amased by experiments with everyday materials. They can be so interesting!
Experiments are part of chemistry, and without them, the world wouldn’t be the same. With experiments, some of the biggest discoveries happened which significantly contributed to the world’s development in many fields. We sincerely don’t recommend for children to do any of the following experiments without an adult supervision because even though they seem safe, there could be some dangerous consequences. Also, we are recommending for those who will be doing the experiments to use a safety equipment regardless whether they are children or adults. If you have kids you try these eas experiments with them, tehy will surely enjoy all of them. Perhaps you too!
We have picked three experiments from Insider Monkey’s article. The first one is Rubber egg. All you need for this experiment are two glasses, egg and vinegar. For the rubber egg chemical experiment, the first step you need to do is place an egg in a glass. After you place the egg in the first glass, pour vinegar into the other glass. Next, add the vinegar into the glass with the egg. Let the egg soak in the vinegar for two days. When you pull out the egg from the vinegar, you will see it is soft and the shell is reduced. Peel off the remained shell on the egg and enjoy playing with your rubber egg. Keep in mind that if you pop the egg with something sharp, it will spoil and you can make a huge mess. For the experiment Burning Money the materials needed: rubbing alcohol, a lighter, a towel and a jar. It is not recommended for children to do without an adult supervision. Put the towel into the jar and fill it with rubbing alcohol. The next step is to pull out the towel which was in the rubbing alcohol with something like scissors, don’t touch it with your bare hands. Light the towel on fire and you can see that the fire is actually pink and it is amazing. After you watch it burn for a couple of seconds, you will notice that the towel isn’t burning at all, if you touch it with your hands while it is not on fire it will have the feeling of a laundry dry.
