Does anyone know about the coke and mentos expirement?!

Question: Does anyone know about the coke and mentos expirement?
im trying to do that to show preschool kids a science experiment but i was wondering what exactly do i do? what liter of coke should i buy? does it matter? and do i dump the whole mentos bag into the coke bottle? help and please/thanks :)


Buy a 2 litter bottle of Diet Coke and a roll of Mentos. You can use any soda but room temperature Diet Coke for some reason is the best performer.
Find a big open area to launch your Mentos Coke Rocket. Don’t do it indoors. Trust me.
Slide the paper cover off the Mentos (leave the foil wrapper on) and slip the roll into the bottle.
Quickly cap the bottle and shake it.
Gently unscrew the cap, just a little, until you start to hear fizzing.
Throw it down and cover your face!

It has to be Diet Coke, and the more you drop in, the more it will rocket., but you only get one chance, so try to drop as many in simultaneously as possible.

Can't. you don't understand the physics so you can't even build a rudimentary replicant of a working model.

Buy a 2 liter bottle of coke(or any soda) and drop one or two mentos in the bottle.(at least that's what I did).
Good luck

2 Liter Bottle+Diet Coke+ALL of the Mentos=Maximum Explosion! Have fun and good luck!

Tried it!

I hear diet Coke is best. It may also be better to crush up the Mentos.

I believe it works best with a 2 liter coke and you only use one mento.

Diet soda works the best.
