design considerations
Design Considerations
  • Best ratio of baking soda to vinegar

(How can you systematically optimize it?)

  • Method to seal the reaction chamber without mixing the baking soda and vinegar
  • Size/placement of exhaust hole(s) for CO2 to escape
  • Appropriate weight and its distribution
