CCP General Chemistry students launch pipet footballs using combustible chemical reactions 2

CCP General Chemistry students launch pipet footballs using combustible chemical reactions. 

Students in Mrs. Maske’s CCP General Chemistry course made a prediction for the Super Bowl by playing a “Hydrogen-Oxygen Fuel-Cell Superbowl” game in class. Students used a manganese catalyst to break down hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen gas for the oxygen generator and used a reaction between hydrochloric acid and zinc as the hydrogen gas generator. They collected both gases in different stoichiometric ratios to make combustible mixtures that were set to explode and launch the pipet footballs by a modified BBQ grill ignitor. Students used stoichiometry to determine ratios to move the footballs down the field. The class predicted that San Francisco would win over Kansas City 12 to 6. The game continued on Tuesday the 13th, which happened to be National Kiss Day, so the halftime show had to be performed by the iconic rock band, Kiss while the “Stoichiometry Superstars” claimed victory over the “Chemistry Cool Kids” 27 to 24. Fantastic work by all participating students!
