Hey guys! This is my first post.

I was wondering if any of you guys have done the mentos and soda experiment? The one where you can either make a huge fountain, or send a bottle of soda 40 feet through the air? If not I'll explain in this thread how it's done.


What you'll need:
1 Two litre bottle of soda (I use Diet Coke because diet is less sticky than regular and I just find Coke to work better
1 Pack of Mentos (Preferably mint because they are chalkier)
1 Test Tube (Must be at least as wide as a Mento)
1 Piece of card

Okay, first stand up your bottle of soda on something (flat ground or a table you're willing to get wet) and remove the lid. Next fill the test tube with as many mentos as possible. (I have one that holds 13) Place the card over the top of the test tube and turn the test tube upside down with the card still over the end. Place the test tube and card upside down over the top of the bottle and try to line up the test tube perfectly over the end. Now quickly remove the card, let the mentos fall in and step back.

You should get something like this

Now for the REALLY fun way.


What You'll Need:
1 Two Litre bottle of soda (Same as before, preferably Diet Coke)
1 Pack of Mentos (Again, preferably mint)

This is much simpler. Stand up your bottle on a flat surface you don't mind getting wet. Remove the lid. Open one side of your mentos packet. Drop the mentos packet in with the open side pointing to the bottom of the bottle and VERY quickly put the lid back on. Shake the bottle vigorously for a few seconds, loosen the lid a bit and throw the bottle to the ground as hard as you can. (Make sure the lid is pointing towards you, you don't want that sucker smacking you in the stomach)

This is great fun and a barrel of laughs if done correctly. The results should be like this

Well I hope you all try this as it's good fun!
