The Coke Zero And Mentos Rocket Car

Submitted by: panth753 7 years ago in Entertainment

How far can Coke and Mentos take you? Could this be a new fuel alternative?

Similar to those old water and air rockets we used to play with as kids. Once the initial pressure`s gone, so is the propulsion`s fight against friction. Cute, but certainly not "rocket science". :\

Very cool, with plenty of visible physics. Where can I apply to work with these guys? The timed release of the vehicle absolutely makes sense. It gets it`s momentum from firing the plastic rods out at the highest possible speed and pushing them against its massive backrest. They have to wait a few seconds for the pressure to build up in all bottles. Actually, this is more like firing a bullet from a rifle than propelling a rocket. Win!

Quite cool. Could have gone further if they didn`t hold it back when first firing I guess, but I need to try this now.

They had the timing all off, they shouldn`t have held it back, they lost the majority of the thrust.

About 300,000L/100km.

I`ll dock some points for fuel efficiency.

Cool video, thanks for posting. I am not very good at science, but I think this jet or rocket method maybe a little wasteful. A better solution may be to stagger the introduction of Mentos into the Coke, and pass the chemical reaction through a tube to a turbine directly connected to the wheels. I dunno it that would work. I hope that makes sense, even I don`t understand it :->
