Why do Diet Coke and Mentos react?

This reaction is an example of the dissolved gas (carbon dioxide) within diet coke, quickly bubbling out of solution as a result of Mentos being dropped in.

The surface of Mentos candies are high in surface area, and are bumpy and pitted. Bumpy surfaces tend to "seed" bubbles out of carbonated drinks. What is meant by "seeding" this means is that when a gas is dissolved in a solution, it remains within the solution in microscopic bubbles. If there is an area where these microscopic bubbles can gather, they will do so to create a larger bubble (due to the hydrophobic effect). Areas that promote these microscopic bubbles to gather are called "seeds". Eventually the bubble will be too large to simply stay in solution and begin to rise to the surface, often as a visible tiny bubble. This is the same reason why after pouring yourself a glass of your favorite carbonated beverage, you may see small bubbling trails seemingly coming from the side of the glass out of nowhere. The "source" or origin of the bubbling is likely a small imperfection of the glass seeding bubbles.

When you drop the Mentos in, the carbon dioxide bubbles in the soda becomes seeded all over the entire surface of the candy's surface. Due to its high surface area, it seeds millions of bubbles at once, creating rapid gas release from solution. Additionally, gum Arabic coating the surface of the candy acts as a surfactant, decreasing surface tension of the bubbles on its surface. Low surface tension also helps bubbles grow quickly. Aspartame (the artificial sweetener in diet coke) also works as a surfactant in solution, further decreasing surface area and increasing bubbling. Finally, Mentos are also fairly dense and sink rapidly, quickly creating bubbles that seed further bubbles as they rise, creating an exponential effect as the bubbles rise to the surface, as the bubbles are given more time to gather more bubbles as they rise.

Why are Coca-Cola and Diet Coke so popular?

Coca-Cola and Diet Coke are two brands obviously from the Coca-Cola corporation. Since 1886, Coca-Cola was a huge hit on the street since it's taste was delicious to a load of people. After a huge franchise success that took years to make and a 124 year ad campaign, Coca-Cola is now a huge hit. Diet Coke was made in the 20th century to have 0 calories, seemingly making it soundhealthy (or just sound healthier than Coca-Cola) making people think "Hey, this will be tasty and better for me to drink!" to add on to a popular soda corporation's reputation as one of the most popular drinks in the world!

Can Diet Coke kill sperm cells?

If you plan on flushing your vagina with diet coke after sex with a male as an inexpensive means of birth control, it's probably not worth the risk. The acidity of the female vagina instantly kills 25% of sperm on contact. Another 20% of sperm are defected anyway. That leaves 55% of sperm under the influence of diet coke. Fun to think about in theory but too risky for birth control as far as I can tell. What happens if that sperm under the influence of diet coke makes it to the egg and fertilizes it. Are you sure you want a child that is 2/3 human and 1/3 Aspartame?

What are the ingredients in Coke and Diet Coke that have negative effects on teeth and why?

In Coca-Cola there is both sugar and phosphoric acid. Both damage your teeth. Diet Coke, Coke Zero, and Caffeine Free Coke all still have phosphoric acid, which erodes your teeth.

The sugars in the non-diet soda will cause bacteria to grow on the teeth, which can release acids that damage the enamel, and cause cavities to form.

Brushing/Rinsing is the best thing to do after an occasional soda. Without rinsing/brushing even milk, orange juice, or apple juice can cause some of the same problems. In caffeinated colas, the caffeine will dry your mouth and decrease your saliva. The saliva has an important role in neutralizing acidity in the mouth. So eliminating the caffeine is important as well, to avoid tooth damage.

What are the main ingredients of Diet Coke?

Diet Coke contains: -Carbonated water -Caramel color -Aspartame (A sugar-replacement sweetener which is the basis of NutraSweet and Equal, and has been discovered to cause harm to the brain and nervouse system, causing anything from spasms or shooting pains, numbness, tinnitus, depression, impaired vision and mempory loss to dizzyness. Indeed, the term 'Aspartame Disease' has been coined to describe these maladies. Dangerous stuff, that.) -Phosphoric Acid (Though this is used to remove rust in a more concentrated form, there are such relatively little and more dissapated amounts in coke that there is no need to get in a tizzy about it. Though, If you are a pretty regular, heavy drinker of this, or any soda, consider using a straw, which will keep the majority of this further from your teeth, since it can cause damage to your enamel. Ew!) -Citric Acid -Potassium Benzoate (protects the taste) -Natural flavors (to give it that yummy snap.) -Caffeine (Sweet, sweet caffeine...) All in all, Diet Coke is basically chemicle soup, and probobly something that nature never intended that any living thing consume as nourishment. I am drinking one right now. Chao!, Tricia Years ago I worked for Pepsi/7Up and the recipe is secret although the above poster gave you a good low-down. In the 30s - 40s Soda Jerks would put the coke-like syrup in a glass and add soda. I just heard also on the news that Coke (Pepsi will be following suit) will be adding Vitamin C and a few other things to keep up with the new health standards of the U.S. and Canada. Mmmmm?
