Pop neve Pop neve Presentation Transcript

  • Pop NeveWhat the heck is it?!
  • 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...
  • JUST WHAT THEHECK IS IN THAT STUFF?!
  • 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.
  • But thatdoesnt answer our question!
  • 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.
  • This presents a new question.
  • What was the chemicalcompound that was not sodium or sodium bicarbonate?
  • But there is some kind oftrickery with what is in thePop Neve, as it shouldnt react like that IF it was sodium bicarbonate.This is where I got an idea with the gelling agent.
  • What if the gelling agentcontained something to cause it to expand?
  • I later found that theadded chemical was... Sodium Polyacrylate. (pole-yah-krill-ate)
  • I searched up "fake snow" on google and came upwith a page called "How to make fake snow". Well duh.
  • According to the page Ifound, it is non toxic, coolto the touch and lasts for days. This must have been Pop Neve.
  • Thanks for watching, hope you found it interesting.
  • Bye.
