Project Summary

Nick Golubovic
Lava Lamp
Supplies: glass, vegetable oil, water, food coloring, alka seltzer tablets.
Preparation: I poured oil into a glass. Then I poured water in. I added food coloring. Last I added 2 alka seltzer tablets.

The water and oil do not mix. The alka selzer only reacts with the water and makes bubbles of carbon dioxide. The bubbles attach themselves to the colored water and bring them top. The bubbles pop and then the colored water goes back to bottom of glass.
