Mentos and coke jered richter, laura houlberg, dayna kam, aubrey west table of contents: go up intro experiment data/analysis conclusion bibliography introduction: mentos and coke are our generation's baking soda and vinegar made famous by internet videos, and mythbusters in 2006, it was thought that. Only the mint flavored mentos create diet coke geysers fruit flavored mentos have an additional coating that prevents their shells from producing the required explosion of bubbles tic tac mints also work, but their small size makes them difficult to handle the experiments: in each experiment the bottle of diet pepsi (it was. Purchase diet coke in a 2 liter (053 us gal) bottle you can try this with various forms of soda, but a 2 liter (053 us gal) bottle of diet coke will have the most dramatic explosion, often rising more than 10 feet (3 m) in the air if you want to have a smaller explosion, consider buying a. Unless you just discovered youtube yesterday, you've probably seen countless videos of (and maybe even have tried) the infamous diet coke + mentos reaction which brings us to the subject of this month's (belated) paper that i will blog about an enterprising physics professor from appalachian state. Mentos and coke are a fun and easier way to do an experiment similar to a paper mache volcano but how does it work we're breaking down the science behind it. About mentos originally to give my phy2210 students the experience of participating in a real research project, not a canned lab but i admit the project exploded work is required to form a bubble aspartame reduces the work more than sugar potassium benzoate, the preservative they add to beverages containing.
Next, get ready to drop your mentos into the diet coke you can use more than one mentos to get a really big explosion if you'd like to try more than one mentos, roll them into a small paper tube to drop in this will help you get them all in at once before the eruption happens safety tip make sure you move quickly away. You may have done a similar experiment where you combine baking soda and vinegar maybe you did this in a volcano model that reaction is a chemical reaction where a new material is formed this reaction, the mentos and diet coke reaction is a physical reaction, where all the pieces of the reaction remain but are. Add mentos candies to diet soda to create an amazing chemical eruption this is a fun science experiment that shoots out a column of foam what you need roll of mentos candies 2-liter bottle of diet soda index card test tube or sheet of paper a mop for cleanup. It is well known that when a mento is dropped into soda, something cool happens but, what actually happensthe dissolved co2 in the soda is constantly looking for a.
How does this work why do diet coke & mentos and coke zero & mentos create such exciting geysers it's mostly due to a process called nucleation, where the carbon dioxide in the soda is attracted to the mentos (they are awfully cute) that creates so much pressure that the soda goes flying we then built nozzles that. Use a small paper tube to quickly slide in 6 mentos mint candies then, make way the resulting geyser is one of the most popular science demonstrations but it's not an experiment despite its explosive power, it doesn't answer questions about how the geyser works or what aspects of its ingredients. The guilford journal of chemistry this journal is devoted solely to understanding the mentos eruption it includes peer reviewed papers, pictures and videos, and published research from guilford high school in guilford, connecticut, usa, from 2007 to present h brielmann, publisher peer reviewed publications, highly.
This explains why the drastically increased formation of bubbles after adding mentos to the bottle leads to the geyser of coke shooting out of the top moments later – there's nowhere else for the bubbly liquid to go but up science teachers are well aware that some types of carbonated drinks work better than. You have probably seen it on you tube™ — the exploding coke® and mentos® experiment but what is it that makes the reaction happen, and what factors cause a larger or smaller eruption in this science project, you will see if using crushed mentos candies, instead of whole mentos candies, will affect the reaction. Adam and jamie explore the science behind the fabled diet coke and mentos phenomenon | for more, visit http://dscdiscoverycom/tv-shows/mythbusters/# mkcpgn.
The startling reaction between diet coke and mentos sweets, made famous in thousands of youtube videos, finally has a scientific explanation a study in the us has identified the prime factors that drive the fizzy plumes from coke bottles: the roughness of the sweet and how fast it plummets to the bottle's. Volcano project (diet coke and mentos) i made my structure out of paper mâché and cardboard hate to say this but there's a few bottles where at least one mentos didn't make it in to the bottles like coke zero also with the bottles open like that you lose a lot of the gas from the bottles that come towards.
The diet coke and mentos reaction is a fun demonstration in chemistry and physics classes of many important concepts in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, surface science, and the physics of explosions the reaction has been performed numerous times on television and the internet, but has not been systematically. Have you heard about the mentos in coke phenomenon it's a simple science experiment that your kids will go nuts for try it out for yourself and teach your kids some simple science facts.
