How does it work
A chemical reaction takes place when the vinegar is mixed with the baking soda. The acidic vinegar reacts with the alkaline baking soda to produce carbon dioxide. There is no place for the carbon dioxide to escape inside the launch pad. The pressure builds up and eventually it gets so great that the launch pad propels the rocket high up into the sky.
