Extra Cornstarch Bath Bomb Experiment
The dependent variable in this experiment was how much the bath bomb would fizz when it was placed in a container of water.
The objective of the experiment is to see the change in fizz when extra cornstarch is added to the typical bath bomb recipe. By adding extra cornstarch, we will observe how the fizz of the bath bomb changes in time.
In the experiment, when recipe one or the normal bath bombs were placed in the water they fizzed like store bought bath bombs. Recipe one had the correct amount of cornstarch to make a bath bomb. Recipe two had extra cornstarch added to the recipe. When the extra cornstarch bath bombs were placed in the water they did not fizz as much compared to recipe one. The extra cornstarch took much longer to dissolve than recipe one. In Figure one titled Average Time to Dissolve, it shows how recipe two had a longer average time to dissolve. The bath bombs with extra cornstarch would separate and clump. The normal bath bombs stayed whole until completely
