How science finds things out When you drop mint sweets into diet coke, you get a frothy eruption. Froth fountain Do all types of sweets do this? Do all types of fizzy drinks work as well as each other?
www.FaradaySchools.com This is a job for a scientist... So with safety glasses in place, you get to work... Observations – record of what is seen Theory – an idea supported by evidence Evidence Observations supporting a theory.
www.FaradaySchools.com From my observations, I concluded my theory was right – sweets with a rough surface do produce more froth! My theory: Sweets with a rough surface work better than smooth sweets at producing fizz from coke. Method: I will drop different kinds of sweet into coke
