Coke does not dissolve nails.
I performed an experiment in duplicate with both galvanized and regular nails in coke, lemon juice, Orange Juice, and vinegar. I accurately weighed the nail before and after. In 4 days, the nails in the coke dissolved the least.
% loss in regular nail
% loss in galvanized nail
The acids in coke is the STUFF that makes the nail dissolve.
If you dipped your nail in a can of fresh coke for like 80 years maybe it can dissolve... a bit...
It is often stated that coke has enough acid to quickly dissolve a galvanized nail but in my science class I had a nail in coke for a complete school year and it had no effect other than to make it shiny.
It wont completely dissolve it but it will change the texture of the nail.
yes, it is just as strong as coke
Iron nails cannot dissolve in Coke or Pepsi, or dissociation of the ions so negligible that it will not matter either way.
Provided you had enough time and a large supply of fresh coke, yes, sooner or later.
Keratin is quite impervious to coca cola.
it takes more than a week
No it does not dissolve in coke
Coke will NOT dissolve a penny, it's not strong enough. Nor will it dissolve a nail. Many urban legends say that coke will do many things but technically, it's pH level isn't acidic enough enough for it to dissolve anything more than the corrosion on a battery terminal and it doesn't do that very well either.
Yeahh , I'm experimenting this for a science fair project. It will take a good 2 weeks.
think about it for a few minutes ;) im sure you'll figure it out
coke can not dissolve meat. The meat literaly dissolves the coke
I think this is an urban legend - a twist on the coke will dissolve a nail/tooth because it contains a very small amount of both citric acid and phosphoric acid. Pop contains such a small amount, it won't corrode a nail. Sounds like the email that passed by my desk that was word for word the same as the coke story, except it had the word Dr Pepper inserted wherever Coke should have been. Check out this great link. The writer did an experiment to see if the story was true. He documents the steps he took and the results: http://joshmadison.com/article/will-coke-dissolve-a-nail-experiment/
no coke can dissolve a hotdog because the acid in the coke eats the hotdog away.
NO! Coke can not dissolve raw meat in five days.
Coke will not melt a penny or a nail; that process would involve heat. Instead, the acid from the soda may oxidize some of the metal atoms in the penny and the nail, causing them to become ions and soluble. The some of the metal will dissolve, causing the penny or nail to become pitted and tarnished. However, these objects will not melt.
Coke or Pepsi has been used to remove rust from objects including nails. There was a myth that coke will dissolve nails but this has been proven false.
yes jolly ranchers do dissolve in Coke all u need is a 2 liter of coke any jolly rancher flavor and potions and it will dissolve
