Mentos and Coke

We are going to do an experiment with Diet Coke and Mentos so I did some research on Wikipedia.

This is what I learned:
  1. The geyser is a result of lots of bubbles being released.
  2. The greatest reaction comes from Diet Coke and Mentos.
  3. Bubbles cling to solid objects like Mentos and the side of the bottle this causes a little fizzing.
  4. The potassium, benzout, aspartame, and CO2 in the coke reacting to gum arabic and gelatin cause an explosive amount of foam being released.
