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. Theindependent variablein this experiment is the number of mentos put into a soda can the dependent variable is the amount of co 2 released from the soda and the rate at which it is released, as measured by the width of the balloon containing the co 2. Eepybird explores creativity, and the ways ordinary objects can do extraordinary things their first video, the extreme diet coke & mentos experiments, took the idea of dropping mentos into soda and turned it into one of the best known viral videos of all time. The mentos will cause a great explosion due to the reaction in the ingredients the coke will have the greatest explosion because of the high level of co2 gas contained in it. Mentos and coke are our generation's baking soda and vinegar made famous by internet videos, and mythbusters in 2006, it was thought that this effect was a reaction of what happens when the gum arabic and gelatin, caffeine, potassium benzoate, and aspartame is combined.
Just add mentos to the bottle of soda, pull the trigger, and run away mentos, chewy dragees, soda mix, net weight 37 g (pack of 6 pieces) / beststore by kk by mentos. The first experiment the boys wanted to was to test the amount of mentos we needed we chose to use a smaller bottle for this experiment, while we figured out the best mentos to soda ratio trying to fit 2 packs of mentos into a bottle was near impossible. A soda geyser (alternatively diet coke and mentos geyser or mentos eruption) is a reaction between the carbonated beverage diet coke and mentos mints that causes the beverage to spray out of its container. This is the 'before' photo of the mentos and diet soda fountain eric is about to drop the roll of mentos candies into the open bottle of diet cola anne helmenstine this is a super-easy project that is safe and fun for kids all you need are a roll of mentos™ candies and a 2-liter bottle of soda.

Experiment to find out which type of soda pop has the biggest reaction try cola, diet cola, orange, and a clear soda pop experiment with the mentos candies used.
Many students have come to believe that it is a chemical reaction between the mentos carbonates and the diet coke acids that makes the fountain work however, it turns out that research findings have turned up a quite different explanation the reaction is largely physical, not chemical. Question: does the number of mentos affect the height of the explosion when added to diet coke hypothesis: i think that the number of mentos will affect the height of the explosion because there are more physical reactions happening. Combine diet coke and mentos, and the result is explosive—diet coke shoots out of the bottle like a miniature, sticky old faithful the reaction is so intense, you can make a rocket propelled by.
Experiment materials a roll or box of mentos chewy mints (stick with the standard mint flavor for now) 2-liter bottle of diet soda (either diet or regular soda will work for this experiment, but diet soda is not sticky when you’re cleaning it up, and it will usually create a bigger blast. The mentos soda science experiment needs little introduction since steve spangler’s youtube video went viral in 2005 it was first showcased on the late show with david letterman in 1999, as well as being the subject of a mythbusters investigation in 2006. Soda and mentos experiment by: anna which type of soda will explode the highest using mentos sprite, coke, or diet coke hypothesis: my hypothesis is that the coke will explode the highest because when you put a mentos in a soda and shake the bottle, the carbon dioxide will store up and finally pop the cap of the soda bottle as foam shoots out of the bottle. When the mentos are dropped into the soda, the gum arabic in the coating of the mentos weakens the attraction of the water molecules around the co2 gas bubbles as soon as the mentos hit the soda, the carbon dioxide forms more bubbles in the tiny pores that are all over the mentos surface.
Have you ever seen the diet coke® and mentos® experiment, which is all over the internet, and wondered what makes the reaction work you might think that there is some ingredient in a mentos candy causing a chemical reaction with the soda, like the way baking soda reacts with vinegar. Mentos experiment mentos + soda pop = fun words cannot begin to describe the awesome eruption that is created from adding mentos candies to a 2-liter bottle of soda. Mentos is a candy that made by spraying it with layers of liquid sugar the surface of the mentos is uneven and has tiny microscopic holes called nucleation sites when you add mentos to the group of chemicals that you find in diet soda, the chemicals seek out the holes and try to go into the holes causing a bigger carbon dioxide buildup. Participating in a real research project, not a canned lab but i admit the project for the mentos–diet coke reaction, the carbonic acid and carbon dioxide are not products of a chemical reaction but are already present in the diet coke, whose equilibrium is disturbed by the.
This reaction, the mentos and diet coke reaction is a physical reaction, where all the pieces of the reaction remain but are simply rearranged the soda: the soda is filled with carbon dioxide. Simple science: mentos and soda geyser this post may contain affiliate links make sure you are using diet soda we did a little experiment with different types of soda and found that the ones with the highest amount of sugar, put out the weakest geyser and the diet soda was by far the best geyser. If you’ve ever wondered why diet coke and mentos react so strongly to one another, well, wonder no more to start, it should be noted that it’s not just diet coke and mentos that “react” other carbonated beverages will also readily respond to the addition of mentos.
