the cupboards (dont ask why) I came across a sachet labeled "Pop Neve".I tried out what it said on the "Pop Neve".packet, and I had an idea ofusing it for my homework. Imade a video recording whataffect it had. If you add waterto the white powder in thepacket, it expands and getscold. It got me to thinking...
This is the video I created, showing the effect of thePop Neve. Thumbs to mybrother Jack for recording
That doesnt show,however, what ingredient isadded to make that effect.Apparently the ingredients are secret, but I have a pretty good idea of what it is...
Sodium Bicarbonate.Sodium bicarbonate, or NaHCO3, orbaking soda, is a white powder which Ibelieve was added to the Pop Neve.Although after further research I foundthat the water DISSOLVES thepowder. Therefore there must havebeen another chemical added to createthe growing effect. If you added vinegarto it, well, that would cause it to bulgeand explode (Teehee). I know thatproper sodium added with water wouldcause it to explode (literally) but sodiumbicarbonate would dissolve.
which caused it to become sloppy and damp as seenin the video when too much water is added. It couldnt have been sodium because that explodesliterally in a dangerous way, sodium bicarbonate would dissolve, so it must be something that acts the sameway as vinegar being added to the sodium bicarbonate.
