It would be a great experiment with a few added details like measuring the weight of the pumpkin and the force of one rubber band.
Exploding watermelon with rubber bands experiment.
Thankfully they brought 500 elastic bands.
The rubber bands stretched around a watermelon not only increase the potential energy of the rubber band but also of the watermelon.
This movement from potential to kinetic energy will in essence cut the watermelon in half and make the fruit appear to explode.

With these added measurements i may have been able to provide some statistics and a more precise hypothesis about how many rubber bands would explode a pumpkin.

10 science experiments you can eat with your kids.
This event culminated during national science week 2020 with over 300 schools taking part in one giant and somewhat messy science experiment.
Dr rob certainly has and he s destroyed many melons seeking the answer.
Have you ever wondered how many rubber bands it takes to implode a watermelon.

In this exploding watermelon science experiment you will observe the potential energy of a stretched out rubberband convert to kinetic energy as the rubberband retracts back to its original size.
If you only put a hundred or so rubber bands on a watermelon it isn t going to make it explode but over time it may cause it to split because the force on the rind has changed and continues to do so as the rubber bands want to go back to their original shape.
