Diet Coke and Mentos Project Lab Team Members (no more then 3): ________________, __________________, _______________________ Date Assigned: ______________ Date of Lab: ________________ Date Lab Report Due (1 per team): __________________ Diet Coke and Mentos is a classic example of how a chemical reaction can occur.

They were placed into the Diet Coke at the same time, and the reaction occurred. The variable can be any change to the reaction listed above. For example, you could change the delivery system, amount of Mentos, etc. The possibilities are endless!! You must have at least 1 control group (the classic example) and then your change group. You may work with your group outside of class to determine the best combination of each group that gets the highest fountain. The group that gets the highest fountain will get an extra 10 points added to their lab report. Due dates: Monday April 25, 2011: All materials due to Ms. Layman (this ensures we have everything on lab day). Remember that Ms. Layman will not supply ANYTHING!
