Recently Kieran and I tried a few simple chemical reactions involving Coca Cola and a few other drink in the Coke range such as Diet Coke, Coke No Sugar Sprite and Fanta. We dropped a range of different lollies into the drinks to watch the reaction.
As you can see in the video above we have a lot of different sweet treats that we use in the Cokes and yes we had a few left over to eat. The Orange balloon that was inflated by the chemical reaction was still up 20 minutes later and showed no signs of deflating anytime soon.
Afterwards we remembered that we also had a pack of fruit tingles and a couple of other lollies so we might have to make a second version of this at some stage. I was excited to test out the Mentos reaction which is very common it also had the best reaction out of all of the sweets we tested. I did expect a better reaction from bicarb soda as well but oh well.
Smartly we decided to do this experiment in a park to limit the sticky clean up with Coke and the other drinks going everywhere.
Now from the video we can see that our camera skills need a bit of work but bare with us we will get better
We are hoping to do a range of experiments with white vinegar next if this video is well received, are there anything that you would like to see us mix with vinegar?
