Introduction: Mentos and Soda Show

 You see videos on youtube.com where people made geysers from Mentos and Soda. Soda has carbon dioxide which causes the soda to foam up when the mentos is dropped in the soda. Diet Coke is used because it has the most carbon dioxide in that soda compared to any other soda there is. Soda and Mentos works because the numerous amount of pores in the candy’s surface catalyze the release of Carbon Dioxide gas from the soda resulting in a rapid explosion of foam. If you want to show your friends an awesome show try this to impress them.
