Bath Bombs Science

Bath bombs—like the ones shown in Figure 1, below—can come in all types of shapes, sizes, and festive colors, depending on the molds and dyes used.
They can also have a wide range of ingredients, including bath bombs, various fragrances, and other components. That said, there are a few key ingredients that most simple bath bomb recipes have: baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch. When baking soda and citric acid are mixed together with some water, they undergo a chemical reaction. Specifically, this reaction involves acid-base chemistry, since the baking soda—also known as sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3)—is a weak base, and citric acid (C6H8O7) is a weak acid.
Mixed Balls Bath Bomb How do you think having more or less filler will affect how fizzy the bath bombs will be and how quickly they can dissolve in the tub? Note that you will be testing one normal bath bomb recipe, and a second recipe that has extra cornstarch added to it (and includes less citric acid and baking soda to keep the totals similar). Which do you think will make the most impressive bath bombs? Get ready to find out!
