Why do pop rocks fizz in your mouth?
Pop Rocks are essentially hard candy (like Jolly Ranchers and Livesavers) mixed with an unusual ingredient: carbon dioxide. In normal hard candies, a sugary syrup is mixed, boiled, then allowed to cool and harden. In Pop Rocks, the boiled syrup is mixed again, this time with pressurized Co2, leaving air bubbles in the finished candy. When you eat Pop Rocks, the sugar dissolves in the heat of your mouth, popping the air bubbles and releasing the Co2 gas. This creates the unique...

Why does the soda explodewhen you put pop rocks in it?
Because then the soda would melt the pop rocks therefore forcing the pop rocks to let it's CO2 (carbon dioxide) out because the pop rock basically cinsists of CO2 (carbon dioxide).Thats why you here a pop when you put pop rocks in your mouth. ...

What happens when soda is mixed with pop rocks?
well because there is carbon dioxide in the pop rocks and there is alot of carbonation in soda it causes a reaction of foaming up. if you were to put a packet of pop rocks in a 16oz coca cola bottle and quickly put a ballon over it you would see how much carbonation is really there. so try it and maybe it will help you answer our question better! ...

Why is carbon-14 not useful to date rocks?
Carbon-14 is not the right way to date rocks. Let me explain why: Carbon-14 only works on organisms that take in carbon-dioxide( living things ). Living organisms breathe in oxygen as well as carbon-dioxide because it's in the air, just taking in more oxygen. But rocks doesn't TAKE IN air, oxygen, and carbon-dioxide. So carbon-14 dating cannot date rocks. ...
