5th May Message

Morning Mount Rushmore!


So below is my video message today, the long awaited volcano eruption (I say eruption loosely!)


Just to inform you of the science behind the cause of the eruption:


The chemical reaction is created by mixing the vinegar (which contains acid) and the bicarbonate of soda (which is an alkali) that then releases bubbles of carbon dioxide (CO2.)   The washing up liquid is just there to trap those bubbles so it flows over the volcano real like real lava.  As for the Coke and the Alka-Seltzer tablets, they are there for extra luck and when done in a smaller bottle, will probably create a more powerful eruption.
