Lava Lamp
* Higher density = water
* Lower density = oil
Citric Acid + Sodium bicarbonate → Sodium citrate + Carbon dioxide + Water
How it works
solid wax turns into liquid

a warm blob rises to the top

a blob cools down

a blob sinks to the bottom
Carbon Tetrachloride
- colorless liquid, sweet odor
- fire extinguishers, cleaning agent

- Originally formed between Chloroform and Chlorine

- Now produced from Methane

Carbon Tetrachloride in Lava Lamp
- Wax has to have a density slightly higher than water.

- Problem: wax often has a density much lower than water

- Solution: Carbon Tetrachloride is added to the mixture in order to increase the density of wax

- Lava lamp works!
