didn't realize how much air is in those things

The reaction is creating more "air"
I don't know exactly what it is, so don't quote me, but I believe Carbon Dioxide is being produced.

Yeah. No reaction actually happening, it's just all the Carbon Dioxide decompressing out of the liquid. That's why any fizzy drink is called carbonated.

its carbonic acid decomposing into CO2

Ah, but I thought he added Mentos to it or something, so I thought a reaction was actually happening.
But if he just shook it up, then you are right.

Nah he's just shaking it, I think. That's why he's jiggling it back and forth when it first starts inflating. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's just carbonation.

There isn't any chemical reaction happening. What dose happen is the metno is covered in tiny pits like the surface of a golf ball, these pits make the perfect spot for air bubbles to form. Its like if you left a soda out for a week without a cap, by the time you got back it would be flat, the mentos just accelerate the process.

But why the eruption?
I understand the Mentos turning the Diet Coke flat, but why the sudden release?
User avatar #166 to #72 - derik ONLINE (07/21/2013) [-]
The eruption is a result of a sizable portion of the air in the coke being released at once. Its the same as if you shake a soda before you open it, it all bubbles up and over flows, this is that except without the shaking, and much faster.

You're probably right. I hadn't thought of that. THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.
