What do fizzy drinks contain?
Obviously before you try to make something you have to know what it should contain.
Before we start trying to make our fizzy drink we need to know what makes it so fizzy.
Fizzy drinks like coca-cola over here
- Carbonated water
- High-fructose corn syrup
- Potassium and aspartame
But for your special fizzy drink i think you’ll only be needing the highlighted parts of that list.
Oh yeah and get at least
- 3 lemons
The reason why fizzy drinks foam up and make that sizzling sound anytime you open or shake them really hard
Is because of the carbonated water contained in it
This carbonated water is made up of carbondioxide ( CO2 ) forced into water at high pressures
So much pressure that they want to get out immediately, they are non polar molecules so they can’t stay in the drink
the only reason why they were stable in the drink anyway was because of the pressure in the can.
so when you open your can of soda you’re jut letting out millions of carbondioxide molecules at high speed
Making that pssst noise you hear all the time
Making Your Fizzy Drink
Instead of using carbonated water, we’ll be using baking soda and water as a replacement.
Here are your new list of ingredients
- Baking soda
- 3 Lemons
- A cup
Now let’s get on to making your own drink
- Take a tea spoon of Baking soda and add it into your cup
- Take another tea spoon of sugar and add it into the same cup
- Squeeze three lemons into the cup
- And add a half cup of water
And that’s it, it’s that easy
I know it looks too simple to work but it actually does, you can try yourself and see
