I just got a mail about a child who literally, killed himself with Coca Cola and Mentos. Spoilers aside, here's the file.

Spoilers aside, this is a .pps file, which means you'll need PowerPoint or OpenOffice to open it. I apologize for any mistakes, I translated it from serbian in a rush.

No, but I know what mixing diet coke with mentos does. That, and you mentioning a child kinda makes it easy to figure out. ;)

it isn't a big deal, though if you put them in some kind of weak plastic and the cork closed where's lots of mentos in it, and shake it a bit and the throw to land as hard as you can, it can injure people, since it hits damn hard somebody and flies like a rocket.

otherwise it's not that bad at all, but if you taste some of it, you're gonna puke up.

look for some video clips at youtube, so you'll see.

This is pretty fun to do, i've done it myself also ;)

Dude, a kid drank it and his belly exploded. I'd call it a big deal, it isn't beyond possibility that one of us makes the same mistake. Might have saved your lives, who knows...

It's called a chemical reaction.

A combustion reaction maybe.

Not maybe, definitely. Two chemicals that react to each other found themselves among the ingredients of Coke and Mentos, and boom.

There is no real chemical reaction so to speak. You should watch more mythbusters.

What happens in the case of mentos and soda is the pitted surface of the mentos releases additional gas bubbles into to soda causing massive expansion of the gas/soda mixture.

And since small confined place + massive amounts of liquid = burst

If you read the file, you'd know that there are two substances that mix between Coke and Mentos which form a third, substance which releases gas until it explodes. Just download it.

It doesn't though. There is no chemical reaction between sugar and more sugar that causes an explosion.

There is absolutely no true chemical reaction going on.
