It goes BOOM: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6M-YX-r0Ll4&desktop_uri=/watch?v=6M-YX-r0Ll4
The same thing happens when you put it in your stomach.
Great, now what am I going to eat?
Nothing better than Franco American Spaghetti in the campfire at Boy Scout camp.
Clean up afterwards, not as much.
Similar to when I'm on the bowl the next morning.
That. Was. [DEL]A waste of time.[/DEL] Awesome.
About once a year i forget how vile it is and buy a can. Its like i think at some point it will get better.
Now this is what the internet is for!
I don't know what is worse.....that I watched it all the way through, that I wondered how long it took the can to melt, that I watched the coke vs lava video, or that I wondered if the coke can melted and that's what caused it to start spraying back into the lava rather than exploding.
Back in HS in the '80s my buddy and I used to experiment with microwaving different foods at the convenience store. No, we didn't nuke any cans--we knew better. But one time my buddy grabbed me and said "we have to leave right now!" I asked why, and he said "I just put a 2 litre bottle of Sprite in the microwave!"
Man I love Chef Boyardee Ravioli.
Lava is cool. hehehehehehehehe
Indeed. I always wanted a pet lava.
The Coke can is made of thinner stuff yet it's under higher pressure. In the videos provided, it appears that the lava burns through the cans seams and diminishes the pressure resulting in a spray rather than a kaboom.
So it goes.
Perhaps steamrollering a can of Coke would be more gratifying?
Me too. Loved it as a kid, love it now. I hardly ever eat it, though, because it's pure processed crap. It sure is tasty.
Steel (food cans) also has a higher melting point, typically 2x to 3x that of aluminium (depending on the steel used). The lava should quite easily melt the aluminium, but may not be hot enough to melt the steel (or at least it won't melt as quickly).
You want some fun? Put a can in a toaster oven. Turn it up and wait.
Just don't stand too close when watching.
Try putting a cd - data side up - in a microwave for a few seconds. It doesn't explode, but it makes for a nice light show.
Same thing happens when you put a can on the campfire but it's a lot more exciting because it takes a lot longer and the and anticipation is nerve wracking!
