CheMagic Demonstration Video: Magic Bottle
Magic Bottle: We get a lot of mileage from acid-base indicators. Their color changes at different pH’s make for striking visual chemical demonstrations. The MAGIC BOTTLE, MAGIC INDICATOR, AND FICKLE TRICKLE chemical demonstration videos are related in that they make use of a variety of indicators. The MAGIC BOTTLE is our signature trick and is unique to our outreach presentation. It is an excellent chemical magic trick because it gets the attention of the audience through unexpected color changes. Later in our presentation, we show how the trick is done. In this manner, we emphasize that it’s the chemistry not the magic that is more exciting.
