    Today we're testing a viral video that claims dipping sea shells in vinegar over night will turn them to glass. We're testing that out along with a few other acids.

              I'm only in sixth grade but even I know that this experiment isn't completely accurate because you changed more than one thing during one test. as in: you had one jar (or whatever) that had one small shell with a certain shape, and another that had many different sizs and shapes of shells. (and I don't know if you had the same amount of the same liquid or not...) just saying.

                I bet they just took a seashell shaped crystal, painted it like a seashell, and the vinegar dissolved the paint.

                  Sulfuric didn’t react as powerful because CaSO4 is insoluble, while CaCl2 is very soluble so it disulves it faster in hydrochloric
