can you pl help me create a explanation of how diy lava lamps work pls use this information this is for a science experiment
♣️note fizz tablets, effervescent tablet, alka-seltzer is the same so don’t be confuse
♣️more info (ingredients) oil water and the tablet so pls help ding this is 25 points
♣️effervescent tablets react differently to oil and water. the fizzing of these tablets is typically caused by citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. these two substances are stable when they are solids, and they don't do much in oil either.
♣️instead of using a light, in our homemade lava lamp we used alka-seltzer to power the lamp. the alka-seltzer reacts with the water to produce carbon dioxide gas bubbles. these stick to the water droplets. the water/gas combo is less dense than the oil, so they rise to the top of the flask
♣️effervescent or carbon tablets are tablets which are designed to dissolve in water, and release carbon dioxide. to use them, they are dropped into water to make a solution. the powdered ingredients are also packaged and sold as effervescent powders or may be granulated and sold as effervescent granules.
