Scientific method

Cheeseburger’s Scientific method work

Purpose: What do you want to learn/find out?

We want to find out how to catch the most gas.Also we want to find out what will happen if we add equal parts of ingredients or less ingredients. We mostly want to get the biggest chemical reaction.  

Hypothesis: Try to predict the answer to the problem. Another term for hypothesis is ‘educated guess’. This is usually stated like ” If I…(do something) then…(this will occur)

We think if we add equal parts of vinegar and baking soda then it will create a bigger chemical reaction when these two ingredients come together.

In the second experiment we think we should add less vinegar and more baking soda to see what will happen. 


Materials: List everything you will need to conduct your experiment.

      Materials:                       Ingredients:

  1. 1 Cup                       1.Baking soda       
  2. 1 Spoon                   2.White Vinegar 
  3. 1 Bottle                   
  4. 1 Balloon 

Experiment procedure: The fun part! Design a test or procedure to confirm or disprove your hypothesis. Write down each step so that someone else could do the same experiment.

1. Firstly we want to add 4 tsp of vinegar   

2. 5 tsp of baking soda  

2.  Put the vinegar in a bottle and put the baking soda into the balloon and then put the balloon on top of the water bottle. 

3. Now tip the baking soda that’s in the balloon and watch the experiments explode in side of the balloon  


Analysis/Data: Record what happened during the experiment. 

For the first experiment we added  less vinegar and more baking soda. The results that we got weren’t too good. We shocked the bottle to see if it would create a fast chemical reaction but it was a very slow chemical reaction. When we did this experiment we tried to catch lots of gas called carbon dioxide but instead we didn’t catch as much.

For the second experiment we did the same thing but this time it gave us a better and bigger chemical reaction. This time when we captured the gas called carbon dioxide we caught lots more than the first experiment so this means that the balloon that we caught the gas inside of was bigger than the first balloon. 


Conclusion:Review the data and check to see if your hypothesis was correct.

Iva: The best thing I’ve experienced during science is working with each other and learning what White vinegar and baking soda does and that it makes a chemical reaction. But i really enjoyed it because everyone got to get a turn and i got to rewatch the science over and over again.

Selesa: The best I have experienced during this scientific journey is how we all worked together and learning what vinegar and baking soda will do if we mixed it together. When we mix white vinegar and baking soda it makes gas which is called carbon dioxide.

Temalisi:I thought this experiment was really fun.It was cool seeing the bubbles rise in the bottle and watching the bottle get bigger and bigger was really fun to see. It was also really fun to do this experience,I have learnt a lot by just doing on experience.

Angelina: I thought the experience was kinda fun and I thought it would be a bit bigger but I was actually wrong.

Zyilou: In conclusion the results that we got weren’t what we intended to get but it still was better than nothing. We had to watch lots of videos to get all this information about science so that we could do science experiments.
