Diet coke and mentos experiment science buddies
In colder liquids the gas molecules move very slowly, causing them to diffuse out of the solution much more slowly.
Keep the cap of the Geyser Tube off.When you open the top some of the bubble escape making that whisssssh sound.What is the difference in height of the eruptions?Lets start with the soda. Be sure to wear eye protection when putting the candies into the cola!To create bubbles, the carbon dioxide needs to interact with itself, which means that the carbon dioxide's bonds with water in the Diet Coke must be broken.From heat shields in space, prosthetic limbs, semiconductors, and sunscreens to snowboards, race cars, hard drives, and baking dishes, materials scientists and engineers make the materials that make life better.Measure the height of the explosion by the number of bricks that are wet once the geyser stops.Youll want to purchase three bottles of Diet Coke and several rolls of Mentos.Put on wireless network setup wizard xp your eye protection and start the video camera.
The colder the liquid, the more gas can be dissolved in that liquid.
Youll have to find a way to measure in liters.
When you drop the candies in the soda they sink and also start making bubbles in all of those pits.Record the height (at least your best guess for right now).Youre going to set up three tests warm soda, room temperature soda, and cold soda.About how high did the eruption go?Open the bottle and dip the thermometer down into the soda.
