The secrets of soda fizz and how to properly disarm a shaken up soda can.

Watch the video on the page for another trick, as well.

Have you ever wondered why shaking a soda results in a great explosion when it's opened? What causes a 2-liter bottle of soda to go flat? Is there anything that can be done to keep fizz in a bottle of soda? Get ready to uncover some amazing soda secrets that will change your soda drinking habits.

Materials:
Cans of unopened soda. It's best to practice with clear liquids! Try club soda. IMPORTANT: Do not use any diet soda!

Method:
Since the fizz in the soda is actually dissolved carbon dioxide gas, the goal is to keep as much of the gas in the bottle as possible. Soda fizzes when dissolved carbon dioxide gas is released in the form of bubbles. At the bottling plant, carbon dioxide molecules are forced into the soda in an amount that is greater than would ordinarily dissolve under atmospheric conditions. As soon as you open the bottle, most of the excess gas escapes into the room - that's a given! So, it's your job to find a way to keep the remaining gas in the liquid.



Experiment:

* Vigorously shake a sealed can of soda.
* Invite a dinner guest to immediately open the can! Of course, most sane people will refuse the offer.
* With a little science know-how, you'll be able to open the can without spilling a drop. The secret is to use your finger to snap the side of the can. This action dislodges the bubbles attached to the side of the can and they float to the top. When the can is opened, the gas simply escapes. As you will soon discover, tapping the top of the can does nothing.


How it works:
Shaking the unopened can of soda causes bubbles of carbon dioxide to line the inside walls of the can. When you open the can, the pressure in the can goes down and the volume of each bubble goes up (Boyle's Law). The quickly expanding bubbles force the liquid that rests above it out of the can.

Additional Information:
Most people have learned to tap the top of the can before opening it. Scientifically speaking, THIS DOES NOTHING! However, tapping the side of the can knocks bubbles off the bottom and sides of the can, at which point they rise to the top. The trick is to dislodge the bubbles from the sidewalls and bottom of the can so they can float to the top of the can (because gas is lighter than liquid) and there is only a small amount of liquid blocking their escape when you open the can. Remember, SNAP the SIDE instead of tapping the top.

Well, since tapping the top actually DOES work, but the science makes more sense...I'm gonna have to say that the vibrations from tapping the top of the can are sent down the sides, dislodging the bubbles as well. Although, snapping the sides does sound more effective, because of more vibration.

This sounds like a good experiment. Which method causes sodas to explode less: snapping or tapping? :grin:

i dunno, but i have a theory on this... you guys in america can try this out since you have free refills at every fast food shop... go to one of the soda dispensers and fill a cup with diet soda... you'll see that it foams like a motherfucker compared to the regular sodas... i don't know why, though...

Yeah, it got all over my hands. I was walking to class and got one out of a vending machine. I could just hear people's thoughts="He should have just tapped the top". Maybe I just flicked it too hard or something.

I've known this for years. You can shake the fuck out of a can and tap it for a minute and it wont explode. I always tap the top, and the sides.

Can = tap top tab with fingertip.
Bottle = tap side with lighter.

Never failed me yet.

I found that flicking the top and bottom of the can disarms a potentially shaken soda can fairly well.
