A chemical reaction took place immediately. The vitamin tablet dissolved, the liquid changed colour and started to bubble. You could hear the fizz as the vitamin tablets dissolved

Let's try to make some carbonate dioxide. We will need a funnel, a measure of bicarbonate of soda (baking powder), a flask with a measured amount of white vinegar and a balloon.

Take the balloon off the funnel and carefully place it over the flask containing the vinegar.

Now tip up the balloon so the powder falls into the vinegar. Sit back and watch what happens.
