About: Rudy Explor: Hack, Test, project and experiment is: Simply a quest for discovery. Here are some of my experiences, life hacks, product testing and random weekend

Coke with gas lighter : coke and propane mixture is a really impressive experience,

when both liquids are mixed, you get a great accelerator so that the recipient of the

bottle will be launched as a rocket.

WARNING ! Do not repeat what you see ! It's very dangerous. The recommended

age for viewing is +18.

After mentos + coke, propane is now associating with the famous American drink

wich makes a new chemical reaction

Step 1: Add the Gas Into the Coke Bottle

In order to do this test, I need :

- Gas propane

- A plastic coke bottle (Never use glass)

- Coke or another liquid with bubbles.

After having emptied few sips from the bottle, add the gas into the bottle.

The gas is very cold, it would be better to use gloves for your security.

In order to put the gas in the bottle, I use a spraypaint caps.

Step 2: Rocket

Turn the bottle = instant reaction.

Chemical reaction :

The gas is frozen on the surface of coke, gas is still in the liquid state. When the

bottle is returned, the gas is mixed with coke which is warmer. The gas is going ont

the top of the bottle and expands, while coke produces foam, the gas coca grows

strongly out of the bottle.

Please do not reproduce this kind of experience because it's dangerous. The

operation is explained in the description.

Courtesy and Ecology, do not forget to throw your bottles in the rubbish can.

Pretty cool ! Is not it?
I hope you enjoyed this instructable.

    You can do this MUCH more powerfully with liquid nitrogen but risk messing up and freezing your fingers off (but then results are phenomenal)!

    I'm pretty sure that is a can of butane, not propane.
    Butane cans like that one are common for refilling lighters and for small tabletop grills.
    I have never seen propane in can that small, only in larger cylinders for torches and lanterns.
