Science Buddies 2011 Summer Science Fellows explain the chemistry and physics of the explosion that occurs when they ignite ethanol trapped in a film canister. You can see the full science experimental procedure for this science fair project idea–and do it yourself!— in ‘Getting a Bang Out of Breath Spray: Studying the Chemistry and Physics of a Small Explosion’ project idea at Science Buddies. This includes details on construction, variables, and data collection as well as guidelines on developing the experiment into a full science fair project. Science Buddies also hosts a library of over 1000 other free science fair project ideas.
