Chalk Talk: At Home Science Projects: The Amazing Mustard Trick
What To Do: You’ll need a packet of mustard from a fast food restaurant, some Kosher salt, and a 1-liter plastic bottle. Make sure there are no labels on the bottle, because you’ll want to be able to see inside it. Fill the bottle with water to the top, and add the mustard packet. If the packet sinks, add about three tablespoons of salt and shake the bottle until the salt dissolves. Add more salt as needed until the mustard sinks. Once you’ve got a floating mustard packet, fill the bottle all the way to the top and cap it tightly. When you squeeze the bottle, the mustard packet should sink. When you release the bottle, it should float again. Now show it off!
How It Works: Inside most mustard packets is a little bubble of air. Sometimes this bubble will keep the packet from sinking, but when you squeeze the bottle you put pressure on the bubble and it becomes denser. When the density of the bubble becomes greater than the density of the water around it, the packet sinks.
