Carbon Dioxide Test with Baking Soda and Vinegar
To conduct this simple test at home, you'll need a clear glass, baking soda, vinegar, and a straw. First, fill the glass halfway with vinegar. Next, add a few teaspoons of baking soda. This combination will start to fizz, producing carbon dioxide. Then, using the straw, try blowing gently into the glass. The carbon dioxide you exhale will mix with the carbon dioxide produced in the glass. Observe the changes in the reaction. This test can illustrate the presence of CO2 in the air we breathe out, contributing to the overall CO2 levels in our homes.
Indoor Plant Test
Plants are natural absorbers of carbon dioxide, making them great indicators of CO2 levels. For this experiment, you'll need two similar indoor plants, two clear plastic bags, and a sunny windowsill. Place one plant outside in fresh air and the other one inside your home, both in sunny spots. Cover both plants with the clear plastic bags and leave them for a few hours. Observe the bags: if the bag over the indoor plant inflates more than the one outside, it indicates a higher concentration of CO2 inside your home. This activity showcases how plants interact with carbon dioxide and can help us understand our indoor air quality.
