The Science Behind Alka-Seltzer Rockets

Are you ready to embark on a thrilling adventure into the world of Alka-Seltzer rockets? Look no further! The Knowledge Nest brings you a step-by-step guide to creating your very own rockets that are bound to impress friends and family.

Materials You'll Need

  • Empty film canister with lid
  • Alka-Seltzer tablets
  • Water
  • Scissors
  • Decorative materials (optional)

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Start by removing the lid of the film canister.
  2. Cut a small hole in the canister lid, just big enough to fit an Alka-Seltzer tablet through.
  3. Fill the canister about halfway with water.
  4. Drop one Alka-Seltzer tablet into the canister.
  5. Quickly and carefully place the lid back on the canister.
  6. Stand back, observe, and get ready for the thrilling explosion!

Science Behind the Reaction

The reaction between the water and the Alka-Seltzer tablet generates carbon dioxide gas. As the gas builds up pressure inside the canister, it eventually becomes too much for the lid to contain, resulting in a dramatic "launch" as the lid pops off.
