4 Odd Experiments with Milk

4 Odd Experiments with Milk

Hey, guys! Welcome back thanks for joining us today on the king of random we’ve often done some chemistry experiments that are hard to do at home Because it’s hard to get your hands on the right chemicals or it’s a little too dangerous Well today we’ve got some experiments that are easy, and safe to do at home with Chemicals that are very readily available all of the experiments, we’ll do today will involve milk as a Main ingredient the first experiment we’re gonna
Try, involves milk and a bottle of cola all the milk is almost ph neutral some of the components in it react Interestingly with the acids and bases found in other chemicals we’re Gonna, try pouring, some milk into one of these cola Bottles and watch what happens as it reacts with the acid in the soda alright, we want to let? A little bit of the gas escape otherwise it’s gonna overflow. And spill over also probably just pour out A little bit of the soda before we add our milk just to make more space and i have also shaken it up and slowly Opened it to try and take out, some of the extra bubbles Now i’ll pour in the milk and we’ll let it sit for a, while to watch what happens It’s gonna react and hopefully not overflow That’s one of the, main reasons i tried to get rid of some of the extra bubbles cuz If i’d done that when it was new it probably would have just exploded everywhere Wow that can be cool it’s not what we’re, going for today, oh? This is dangerous because if i don’t hold it tight enough it’s just gonna explode everywhere i think it’s going to explode everywhere oh All right almost unscathed just got a little bit in there and mix this up a little bit You can, already, see what’s starting to happen There’s little flecks and bits visible floating around in the soda so now, we’re just, gonna take this and we’re gonna let It sit for about 45 minutes and watch what happens to it All right our bottle of coke, and milk has now been sitting for a little over an hour and you can See how much it’s weirdly separated out to Be honest i’m not sure what exactly the different components here are we’ve got some sort of Bubbly, foam up at the top And we’ve got this darker brown Disgusting whatever it is down at the bottom and a clear liquid i mean it’s clear It’s murky looks kind of like, swamp water but you can, see through it that’s for sure Alright let’s open it up see what we’ve got inside Well that’s pretty interesting all the bubbles escaping our lifting some of the mix with it It still smells like cola That looks really gross but i am gonna try a little bit of this should just be cola and milk but Okay, weirdly enough that actually just, still tastes like cola Right this clear gross liquid it tastes like cola, still weird Now we’re gonna do an experiment that i learned way? Back in elementary school and i’ve always thought it looks really cool it involves using milk food coloring and a little bit of dish soap The setup is very simple find a nice shallow. Pan or plate and fill it with, about half an inch of milk After you filled your container with a shallow Layer of milk take, your pick of food coloring and drop a few drops around your Milk now i have my container of dish soap and you can either drip it in just with single drops or if you have a Long bamboo skewer or something similar you can touch that into the soap and then touch it into the milk near the food coloring boom The, soap starts reacting with the milk and makes it spread out in these, weird smoke like patterns And when it runs into the food coloring it spreads that out in its, own smoke, like patterns that run across the surface of the milk It’s a really cool, swirling patterns doing this Alright it’s already kind of swirled up but i am gonna Try, just dripping in a drop of soap and see if that does anything at. This point Yes it does look at that it just flies, away That’s pretty fun let’s try a couple different colors and do this again so What’s happening here the soap lands on the milk but it doesn’t mix into it it starts dissolving over the surface of the milk and As it dissolves it spreads out into incredibly thin layers the food coloring is less dense than the milk and so it tends to sit on the surface of it So as the soap is moving around spreading out it pulls and pushes the food coloring, along with it the soap Begins to bind to the fat in the milk, which Is what makes it keep moving and swirling around even after it’s been in the milk for a, while Our next experiment Is somewhat inspired by those videos you’ve probably seen of making elephant toothpaste That’s a combination of chemicals that sort of combines quickly and explodes out in this really thick dense foam what We’ll do isn’t quite as explosive or rigid but it is impressively similar how Thick, and fast it foams up the first step is to just pour about half cup. Of milk in each plastic Cup, now, we have here some baking, soda, and some citric acid one is a fairly strong base and the other as its Name implies is an acid if you Want to buy citric acid it’s usually sold with canning supplies in your grocery store this is a powdered Crystalline acid this is the same stuff that makes lemons and limes sour you, may have experienced some point Your life candy that’s coated with, this stuff it’s just a, white powder but it’s extremely tart Mmm yep If you, ever had warheads This, is what’s on the outside of them i’m going to add one tablespoon of baking? Soda – 1 cup and 1 tablespoon of citric acid to the other Citric acid into the milk Stir up both of those and you can, see that i’m doing this on a cookie sheet because when i add one of these milks to the other one It’s just gonna immediately turn into a foam that sprays up out of the cup, so here goes Boom it erupts all over and it’s like a really thick foam – It holds its shape pretty, well doesn’t just collapse Do that there you go Nice thick milk foam i’m gonna taste it mmm Yeah, that’s, gross it’s like, a little bit sour because of the citric acid But it also has like the baking, soda taste which is sort of oh i? Know salty but? If something can taste powdery then baking, soda tastes powdery i want to try that, again, but i’m gonna Add food coloring to the milk before i combine them and see if we can get like a colored elephant toothpaste coming out of their Home for a bright green sort of booze so i’m gonna, add some green to one side it’s some yellow to the other Baking, soda in one citric acid in the other those together and Colored milk foam eruption Right and milk volcano in three two one hopefully ah There you go! That’s a way better volcano than baking, soda and vinegar Yeah, it slowly oozed off everything Got like this nice red color down here Milk lava And now for one final experiment we’ll show You, how to take milk and vinegar and turn them into a form of plastic the first step is we want to take About one cup of milk and heat it up on the stove you Want to heat the milk up to a point Where it’s just barely too hot to touch don’t let it boil Once your milk is hot remove it from the heat and add four teaspoons of white vinegar You, should be able to see the vinegar reacting with, the milk pretty much immediately as you Stir the vinegar, it will very quickly start clumping into a disgusting mess You can, see it separating out into clear liquid, and some white stringy stuff Once it’s mixed in and really separated pour your whole mixture through a strainer This will separate out the clear liquid and the white goop What you should be left with is a soft white substance that kind of looks like you squished up a marshmallow You can, rinse this off with cool, water to make it easier to handle Now this white mush is mostly made up of what’s called milk casein one of the components in your milk I’m just gonna squish it between a couple of paper towels to try and help and dry it off a little more There you have it now this substance which right now is behaving sort of like a slightly crumbly Clay, will eventually dry to become a fairly hard plastic it’s Also interesting when i first mixed this up i thought that it would smell terrible because it’s basically made of vinegar and curdled Milk but it really doesn’t have much smell at all i’m, also, gonna taste it even though i think it might be gross hmm kind of a gross texture Like if you chewed up string cheese, and then spat it out it’s About like that texture but it really, doesn’t taste like anything it doesn’t taste like, milk it definitely doesn’t taste like Vinegar, it’s just kind of There and try and form this into a triangle like the king of random symbol to Be honest i worked as a sculptor for a few years? This is not the nicest f to sculpt with but it is pretty neat that it’s just made of milk and vinegar I’m just gonna take this triangle i’m gonna put it up on the stealth shelf for a few Days, and we’re just, gonna see what happens to it we’ve now Let our vinegar and milk composite sit for several weeks and really let it dry out and holy cow This, thing is just hard plastic at. This point you see if i can, use pliers and break it Yep, with pliers i can, break it There we go? Interesting it does have a little bit of variance of texture running through it looks like there’s sort of an Outside and then an inner core probably just where it dried faster and slower just see if you can, sand it with sandpaper And sand it quite, well with the sandpaper in fact It’s surprisingly smooth There’s the rough side and then here’s the side that we’ve sanded down All right i was so curious, about, what i could Do with this that i just grabbed the sandpaper and i carved it down into something of an arrowhead shape It’s not really, sharp it’s it’s angled but You’d never be worried, about cutting yourself with something like this it holds its shape i suppose if that were on a Stick and it were traveling fast enough it could, stab through something it is fairly lightweight, so i’m not sure how Much weight it would be offering to your arrow to really guide it but you know it does shape pretty, well surprisingly, well actually There you have it a few simple chemistry experiments that you can, do at home that use milk as the primary ingredient we mix milk with, some cola in a Soda bottle and watched it separated into this murky clear liquid, and then this brown muddy looking sludge down at the bottom some food coloring And dish soap dripped onto the surface of the milk gives us some amazing. Swirling patterns as the dissolves onto the surface of the milk and pushes the food color and all around it when we mix citric acid and baking soda in Cups of milk and then combine the two, we get a? Quick rising thick, dense milk foam which sort of erupts out looks a lot Like elephant toothpaste that effect is even cooler when you? Add some food coloring to it might be a good experiment if you ever need to make yourself a science fair volcano when We combine warm milk with, white vinegar some of the components of the milk separate, and we’re able to strain out the milk casein Which is sort of like a? Gummy, clay, that we can Form into different shapes and then it dries out into a hard plastic if you’ve got any ideas of things you Want to see us try with the milk and vinegar plastic let us know maybe, we’ll try it out Thanks, guys, for joining us for these experiments. Today and we’ll see you in the next one talk to you then You’re, not gonna put in a vacuum chamber Nothing will happen it’s solid plastic this is why you’re not supposed to blow. Bubbles in your Milk this is where your parents were afraid of? Kind of reminds me of intestines you got like this Hey, guys if you, want to catch up with some of the things i’m doing in my personal life, come follow Me on instagram and twitter at the king of random i post stories and updates as often as i can and it’s really the best Way to connect with, me directly i’ll see you there

  1. Mix half and half, regular, not low-fat, with the original non diet redbull in a 1:1 ratio. I did it, surprising results, mix it up and drink it, it tastes okay

  2. I'm actually going to taste it… OH NO

    Two minutes later: I'm actually going to taste it… 😑

    Two minutes later: I'm actually going to taste it…😒

  3. Warheads don’t only have citric acid on the outside, they have malic acid which has citric acid in it, but has other things too, it’s much more sour

  4. That plastic sort of stuff before drying is actually cottage cheese which we call "paneer" in India. We eat it. I love it! 😀 will have to try drying some next time I buy some or make some. LoL

  6. Nate made cheese in the last experiment. He used vinegar as a coagulant, all he needed to do was season it and age it. But he called it clay and said it was plastic 🤦🏻‍♀️

  7. You should do the black snake experiment. It has from memory sugar, sand, vinegar, and bicard then when you light it a black charcoal long like thing forms. It is a slow reaction. Do not quote me on ingredients. You may need to reseach it

  8. I KNEW IT I KNEW U WERE AN ARTIST from your casting skills do i never would have guessed that u were a sculptor… i would have guessed graphics designer or something…

  9. You can obtain something similar by mixing vinegar with salt/baking soda.
    The acetic acid from the vinegar interacts with the sodium from salt/baking soda. If you boil it and colect the foam from the solution, with time, it will harden itself. What you get, it’s a food additive that acts as a preserver.

  10. If I am correct this material( after acidifying, mixing, putting thru a sieve and drying)has been the prize winning for making billiard balls.
    Formely made of animal material(bone, ivory )a contest was made to replace this costly material by something else.
    This material was the prize winner.
    Nowadays this is obsolete.

  11. The plastic stuff" formed in the last "(4th)experiment is called Cottage Cheese and called Paneer in India…that is 100% edible and u can cook it too!! THATS NOT PLASTIC!!

  12. milk+acid such as vinegar or citric acid creates CHEESE, different types depending on temperature and handling and so on.

    So its CHEESE not a plastic :D.
    Taste meh with no salt and to much vinegar and heating to high but.. still cheese.

  13. we call it cottage cheese here but he is saying it clay or latter on plastic… I am from planet earth third planet from sun in solar system located at the edge of the milkyway galaxy. what's his location??

  14. You should make the foam and do some different things with it. Frees dry, dehydrate, put it in a vacuum chamber, and light it on fire.
