Summary of Poster

This is my poster explaining the process of the baking soda and vinegar experiment. I will basically explain my drawings to you. The top left section is telling us that by physically doing the experiment, it took me 17 grams of vinegar to dissolve 1 gram of baking soda. The section right below that tells us how I checked my work. So I had my solution, and I split it into half. Then, in one half I put baking soda. I put vinegar in the other. I wait some time and if no bubbling happens, then it indicates that the right solution has been found. If you put vinegar and then it bubbles, that means that you don’t have enough vinegar to dissolve the baking soda. If you put baking soda and it bubbles, that indicates excess vinegar. This gives us an idea on what we should do next. On the top right corner, there is a molecular model showing the baking soda and vinegar. If you look down to the bottom right corner, you will see a similar sight. But notice something different? It is now the new molecular structure after the reaction. The numbers on the right side are all theoretical calculations. It is combining the molecular weight of the baking soda and vinegar to come up with a ratio. That ratio is 14 grams of vinegar to 1 gram of baking soda. As you can see in the bottom left corner, the experimental and theoretical numbers are very similar. This is like our matter chart in google docs. Connecting theory with experiments. So this is my process of explaining the reaction of vinegar and baking soda.
