Investigate what happens to tarnished pennies when soaked in different liquids such as water, vinegar, coke, ketchup and lemon juice. Notice what happens to the pennies when they are removed from the liquids. Do the pennies change in appearance? Find out if rinsing the pennies in water after soaking changes the final effect. Can you explain why the pennies change in appearance? You can either take photos of your investigation or use the results template to help you.


What’s the science? Pennies tarnish because oxygen in the air causes an oxidation reaction. When placed in acidic liquids, the oxidised copper is dissolved and the pennies become shiny once more. If the liquids are not rinsed off, the pennies will quickly tarnish again and verdigris (a green copper salt) may form on their surface.
