HUGE Foam EXPLOSION!!! Dangerously Large

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/pbL27vGZijw This experiment scared the SH@T out of me!!! The Today Show asked me to come back on TV to perform more science experiments, but they said they wanted TO GO BIG!!! So I thought to myself about how I could amp things up. It dawned on me that the one limiting factor for the “elephant toothpaste” or “Foam Fountain of Science” experiment was getting the reactive ingredients to combine on a larger scale quick enough, but also in a fashion that wouldn’t blow up in my face. The solution? Shot gunning the chemical reactants from a collapsible 16.9 Fl OZ water bottle into a 3-gallon refillable drinking water container. The result was astounding! The bottle created so much pressure you can actually see it jump 4 inches off the bucket it was standing on! The actual foam fountain went about 30+ feet (about 9.1 meters) in the air. After trying this out, I’m 100% sure this experiment is TOO BIG for the Today Show. There would be no way to contain the hydrogen peroxide-potassium iodide mixture. Even with a slight wind the foam would fall all over the crowd in the plaza. Looks like this experiment will live in one place… The NICKIPEDIA channel : ) Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia Website: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.using-hydrogen-peroxide.com/elephant-toothpaste.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Elephant-Toothpaste

What would happen if this is done with 50% Hydrogen Peroxide and 100% potassium Iodide?

Thanks Young Man I'm so Thankful for the opportunity!

That was pretty cool. If it all reacted maybe you should have added more.

Esteban Casanova (2 years ago)
Looks like you got a bit scared there of the foam lol. Would the you be able to add more of the potassium iodide if the hydrogen peroxide was heated?
Arlo (1 year ago)
Esteban Casanova Heating Hydrogen Peroxide is potentially quite dangerous. It causes the compound to become very unstable and start decomposing rapidly. This releases lots of oxygen and cause a fire or an explosion.
