Materials

Procedure

  1. Pour water into the bottle until it is about 1/4 full.

  2. Carefully pour vegetable oil into the bottle until the bottle is nearly full.

  3. Put about 10 drops of food coloring into the bottle. Observe what happens. Does it color the oil or the water? Why?

  4. Put half an Alka Seltzer tablet into the bottle and watch as the reaction propels the "lava" through your lava lamp.

Analysis and Conclusion

Hmm... it seems nobody's added a conclusion for this experiment yet. You can suggest one here.
