SciShow Youngsters just lately revealed an up to date video a couple of “traditional” science experiment. That experiment is dropping Mentos candies right into a bottle of soda pop. However earlier than doing that and explaining what occurs, the video briefly explains how drinks are carbonated and why the bubbles stick with some objects higher than others.
