How to Make a "Volcano" Experiment with Ammonium dichromate

C For Chemistry delves into the chemistry of science experiments. This chemist knows what he's talking about. These chemistry experiments are not only fun, but very educational for all of those interested in scientific chemical reactions and properties.

This video tutorial will show you how to perform a volcano experiment with ammonium dichromate.

HOW TO:
1. Simply add a spoonful of ammonium dichromate to the mortar or container that easy to clean.
2. Ignite it with lighter or match.
3. Wait and see the spectacular result.

CHEMISTRY OF IT:
It is a decompostion reaction, of Ammonium dichromate, this reaction produce steam, Nitrogen gas and Chromium(III) oxide. The decomposition produce large amount of solid, which seems to be a Volcano eruption, hence this is called "Volcano" Experiment.
