HypothesisIf I increase the amount of mentos in my Diet Coke, then the coke will create an explosion with an increased height because of the amount of mentos I up into the diet coke.Testable Question:How does the amount of mentos affect the height of the diet coke?Background ResearchIn Diet Coke bottle the mentos provides a rough surface that allows the bonds between the carbon dioxide gas and water to break more easily,helping to create carbon dioxide bubbles. Because Mentos candies are rather dense,they sink rapidly through the liquid causing a fast, large eruption.Diet Coke looks different than Coca-Cola Zero because Coca-Cola Zero sugar contains sodium citrate,which is not in Diet Coke. Diet Coke contains citric acid,which can not be found in Coke Zero Sugar.
Coca-Cola GB says that Coke zero tastes more like classic coca-cola than Diet Coke.The ingredients in Diet Coke is carbonated water,colour(caramel E105d),phosphoric acid,sweeteners(aspartame, acesulfame K),natural flavorings including caffeine,phosphoric acid, and citric acid. The ingredients in Coca-Cola is water,colour(caramel E150d),phosphoric acid,sweetener(Zero Sugar aspartame,acesulfame K),natural flavourings including caffeine,acidity regulator(sodium citrate).After biting into a mentos it’s minty. In the same way,that Altoids are,there is still a pleasant sweetness to it,and the chew.
The explosion happened when Soda Geyser cause a reaction between the carbonated beverage Diet Coke and Mentos mints that cause the beverage to spray out of its container. The gas released by the candies creates an eruption that pushed mosted of the liquid up and out of the bottle. It’s mostly due to a process called nucleation,where the carbon in the soda is attracted to the Mentos. That cause so much pressure that the soda goes flying. Drop some Mentos sweets into a bottle of Diet Coke and a geyser-like foundation will whoosh into the air.You can use Diet Coke for cleaning toilets.
For instance,Diet Coke is better than most chemical cleaners. Also,it can remove stain from clothes. For example, if you get grease stains on your clothes, you can break up the stain with a can of coke.Results show that Diet coke created the most spectacular explosions with either fruit or mint Mentos, the foundations travelling a horizontal distance of up to seven metres. But caffeine-free Diet Coke did just as well, suggesting that caffeine doesn’t accelerate the reaction, at least at the normal level in the drink.
Too much soda can cause diabetes,cancer,heart disease and other health related issues rise in the US. Mentos is a brand of prepackaged scotch mints sold in stores and vending machine. Netherlands in 1948, in the currently sold in more than a hundred and thirty countries worldwide by the Italian corporation Perfetti Van Melle. The person who invented mentos is Pierre and Michael Van Melle in the Netherlands!
