A classic experiment in chemistry is combining a small candy called mentos with diet coke the result is a massive eruption of foam, shooting stories high into the air mentos and diet coke explosion. Make three bar graphs of whole mentos versus crushed mentos: one graph of the average reaction time, one of the average geyser height, and one of the soda volume remaining you can make the graph by hand or use a website like create a graph to make a graph on the computer and print it. Preschool science experiment: diet coke/ mentos geyser - pinning for the threading the mentos onto a needle idea find this pin and more on mentos soda geysers by steve spangler science kids love science experiments that include explosions, and this one delivers. Natural geysers form when underground chambers fill with water and are heated geothermally when the water is heated to its boiling point, the geyser erupts, spewing its contents—and the cycle starts again. Fizzles, explosions, and eruptions: simple science experiments gone mad when the ingredients are combined, they react in spectacular ways read below to find out how to make mentos geysers, homemade volcanoes, and bubbling, fizzing, and foggy mad science experiments follow the directions for either the paper or the geyser tube geyser.
This soda geyser is one of my all-time favorite science experiments to do with my boys it involves something exploding so of course it is right up their alley my boys would have watched this experiment all day if we had an unlimited amount of soda and mentos.

My experiment is the diet coke and mentos physical reaction i have listed four sources of information about the physical reaction two of the sources will be from the internet, one source will be from a book, and one source will be from an encyclopedia. Kids love science experiments that include explosions, and this one delivers this science project makes a huge geyser of fizzy fun.
Any mentos that have not been glazed will work this is because the co2 bubbles have to get into the holes in the mentos to explose, but if the mint is glazed over they cannot get in the. Letʼs experiment to do our experiment we will need: • 2 liter bottle of diet soda • 1 roll of original mentos • 1 geyser tube • tracking sheet.

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. Mentos geysers spouted out the most soda finally i performed a correlation — or comparison identifying a possible link — between geyser height and the amount of soda lost during a geyser the graph below shows there is a relationship between the height of the geyser and the amount of weight lost from each soda bottle during the test. Do not perform the soda and mentos experiment in an area you don’t want to make messy, because the eruption of the diet coke would be everywhere all over the place fix the geyser tube appropriately and don’t release the mentos into the bottle until you’re ready to “bolt. Science corner: mentos + soda = geyser which is how the mentos + soda experiment wound up on our summer fun list note: if you’re trying this experiment without the geyser tube, beware the reaction is almost instant once you begin dropping the mentos into the soda, prepare to get wet. A science fair project debriefed purpose we wanted to ascertain if the diet coke and mentos reaction that is popular is the best one we wondered what would happen if we changed the type of soda or the type of mentos • place 6 mentos into the geyser tube and attach to the bottle of soda.
