Hot Ice (Sodium Acetate) Experiment Success

Sodium Acetate: a chemical compound made by combining acetic acid and sodium bicarbonate, or simply just plain old vinegar and baking soda. It is used as a flavouring ingredient in snack foods and in hand warmers. Chemical formula: CH3COONa.

This is our second attempt at experimenting with sodium acetate (also known as “hot ice”). The aim was to create a tower using a solution of sodium acetate and water. It was a success!

This is a video of a first attempt at experimenting with sodium acetate.  Experiment performed in Taipei, Taiwan.

It was a fun experiment to do. The result wasn’t exactly what we were going for. Better luck next time.
