Gummi Bear Burns in Potassium Chlorate

at 5:11 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Funny Hacks

 

Take some Potassium Chlorate, a Gummy Bear and add some heat. What do you get? A fun Burning Gummy Bear Reaction!

"Fill the test tube to a depth of about one inch with potassium chlorate. Clamp the test tube in place at an approximately 45° angle. Set up the ringstand-clamp-test tube assembly behind a safety shield in front of the class. Connect the burner so that the test tube can be heated easily.

Light the burner and heat the test tube at the bottom until the solid melts (mp is around 350° C). Stand behind the safety shield and carefully drop one gummi bear into the test tube using tongs or forceps. A violent flame-shooting reaction ensues and lasts for about one minute. You class will remember it for years!"

    You are looking at approximately 1/3 of the cool things you can actually SEE with chemistry. Everything else looks like absolutely nothing is happening, and therefore that is why most people think that chemistry is dumb. πŸ˜€

    Last year when the Chemistry class at my school tried this, it set off the smoke alarm…. twice! This year when he demonstrated it to us, we had a bit better ventilation, so it didn’t go off. Since we didn’t have any gummmy bears, we had to use sugar. That didn’t work because the teacher was a bit too slow to get it in there, and the sugar just burned before it hit the molten potassium Chlorate. Then on the next day we shoved a candy heart in there, and it worked. Good stuff. πŸ˜‰
