Producers

  1. Juice enough lemons to make at least one half of cup of lemon juice.
  2. Mix 4 table spoons of sugar with cold water. (Water should be the same amount of lemon juice.)
  3. Add 1 table spoon of baking soda.

What is the science explanation?

When lemon juice and baking soda mix, they have an affect which is almost the same as the vinegar and baking soda in a volcano experiment. When mixed, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is made from the two, creating carbonated bubbles in the drink.

Variables

IV: Lemonade

DV: The amount of time the bubbles carbonate

Constants: Cup, amount of lemonade, type of baking soda, lemons, and measuring utensils.

Hypothesis: If I add more baking soda to the lemonade, then the amount of time the bubbles carbonate will increase.

Testable Question: How does changing the amount of baking soda added affect the bubble carbonation time?

Any Questions?
