# What is the mass of the flask with the vinegar inside and the balloon attached grams?

## What is the mass of the flask with the vinegar inside and the balloon attached grams?

Answer: 200 grams, because all the atoms remain in the balloon or flask.

## What happens to some of the mass when bubbles are formed during the chemical reaction between vinegar and baking soda in an open system?

A chemical reaction takes place when vinegar and baking soda are mixed. One of the new substances formed is carbon dioxide gas. If the carbon dioxide gas is contained, the mass of the substances will stay the same according to the Law of Conservation of Mass.

## Why is the balloon or a lid on a flask important when looking for Conservation of Mass?

The law of conservation of mass indicates that mass cannot be created nor destroyed. This means the total mass of reactants in a chemical reaction will equal the total mass of the products. For this reason, balloons or zip lock bags may be used to collect the gas and preserve the mass.

## What happens to the weight of the flask as the baking soda and vinegar mix?

When you added the baking soda to the vinegar, the two combined to make carbon-dioxide gas, which inflated the balloon. The expansion of the balloon changed the weight of your sealed flask because you and your entire experiment are submerged in a fluid: air. Just like water, air is a fluid, and fluids buoy up objects.

## Why does it matter how much vinegar and baking soda are added at a time in this experiment?

Adding vinegar to baking soda gives you an immediate reaction. Adding baking soda to vinegar, the reaction is delayed, but then fizzes the same amount. More vinegar is better. A 12 to 1 ratio of vinegar to baking soda caused a fizzing explosion!

## Will the balloon size grow bigger if more vinegar is in the bottle?

The Chemistry Explanation The size of the balloon gives an estimate of the amount of gas produced in the reaction. If you want a bigger balloon you should use more baking soda and vinegar because then more carbon dioxide gas will be produced.

## Do you put helium in foil balloons?

For latex and foil balloons to float, they need to be inflated with helium. Helium is colorless, non-toxic, odorless, tasteless and doesn’t burn. To fill balloons with helium, you can use a Balloon Time helium tank or go to your local Party City store to have balloons inflated.

## Do foil number balloons need helium?

Foil Balloons tend do be deigned to be filled with helium but our range of 16″ letters, numbers and balloons on sticks are all air fill only and this is easily done following the instructions on their packaging.

## Do all foil balloons need helium?

A standard foil balloon measures 18 inches in diameter (round, heart and square) or 20 inches (star) and will float with helium. Anything less than this is unlikely to float, especially if it is a shaped foil.

## Can I fill normal balloons with helium?

All balloons can surely be filled with helium but not all of them will float. First things first, small balloons never float because of the little amount of helium that they can fit inside them. It isn’t enough for the helium to even overcome the weight of the material that the balloon is made of.

## Can we fill normal air in helium balloons?

You can inflate the balloon itself with helium. Fill each balloon with air, tie the streamers to the tails, and attach it to the ceiling.
