So we decided to find out. Kim Tat (the fat dude) went to buy diet coke, while wan Reza (the one with Mentos) went to 7-11 to buy Mentos. Then it's chemistry lab time. We finished our solubility experiments in only 1 hour.

Then, Miss Cheong (the one between them) brought us to the carpark to do this experiment, which she wanted to find out herself too.

So the experiment was done.



WAA!!! the myth was true!!

But i'm still not satisfied. So i went back and check Wikipedia and Youtube for videos on these reactions. Found out that for bigger "explosions", more Mentos (like 5-8) was needed. I think we only used a couple of them.

Besides, stated in Wiki, "...whereas standard Mentos added to carbonated water formed a small geyser..." , so i guess ours is still not a success...

I'll gonna tell Miss Cheong about that and hopefully she'll be tempted to do it again...MUAHAHAHA!!!

ppl normally used diet coke because according to them, diet coke contains aspartame(artificial sugar) that may enhance the geisyer. Plus, diet coke wont be sticky when it spills out and dried, unlike normal coke.
