The overall equation for this reaction is:
2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2
However, the decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into water (H2O) and oxygen (O2) is catalyzed by the iodide ion I from KI (potassium iodide).
H2O2 + I- → OI- + H2O
H2O2 + OI- → I- + H2O + O2
The dishwashing liquid captures the oxygen as bubbles.
I hope more people will consider majoring in science, math or engineering. The world would be a better place if more people knew more science, since we would find solutions much faster to the challenges we face. :) Science & technology allow for a lot of artistic expression, so one can do art while being a geek or nerd. :)
Science will allow us to bring what is thought of as sci-fi or magic into the everyday reality, things like curing aging or eternal youth, telepathy, teleportation, shapeshifting, physical immortality, world peace as explained in the tech-filled videos at https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/URSW7eeNhhf (some videos feature the Google Director of Engineering who talks of Physical Immortality often).
