Problem 12Q

Explain why warm soda pop goes flat faster than cold soda pop.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

 The warm soda pop goes flat faster than cold soda pop , because

  •  "Carbonated" beverages get their name from dissolved carbon dioxide. The bottling process increases the pressure and amount of carbon dioxide in the liquid and air inside the can to levels much higher than in the air outside.
  • "When you take off the top, you get the fizz-pop sound of that pressure being released in the air of the can, "Then the gas in the liquid responds to the reduced pressure in the air above it, and the fizzing of the gas starts. Bubbles!"
  •  Shaking the can enhances the process and causes the bubbles to come out faster and more explosively. The gas also comes out more quickly when the can is warm because carbon dioxide is less soluble in warmer liquids.
  • "The gas essentially has more of a push to escape at the lower solubility, so it escapes faster and the Coke goes flat more quickly,". "But even if cold, the Coke will still go flat. It will just take longer."
