No, you’re not using telekinesis to crumple a bottle without touching it, but a chemical reaction instead! In this Crumpled Bottle experiment, you’ll observe what happens when you add seemingly harmless water to calcium oxide. Follow the step-by-step instructions from the Online Classroom to set up your experiment. After you add the water to the bottle of calcium oxide, watch what happens from a safe distance. This experiment demonstrates one part of the limestone cycle and shows you how lime mortar works in the construction industry. See how the chemistry concepts you’re witnessing have real-life application. The Chemistry Course is heating up!
