What really happens in cola, with the effect of Mantos is the rapid release of CO2, i.e. “gases ” of sparkling fluid. Rapid firing leads to an eye-catching fluid surge of up to seven meters. It remains at the end of the interaction with a regular cola without bubbles, as shown at the end of the short film.
What leads to the release of carbon dioxide from the fluid quickly? The reason is the combination of several factors that boils down to one basic question – what causes the carbon dioxide bubbles to grow faster? In a scientific language, we ask why the development of nucleation Sites in gas bubbles.
In practice, the merging of several factors is being talked about. The first is that the coarse surface area of the mantos is a very high proportion of space versus size, so the candy bars provide an excellent medium for a rapid increase of carbon dioxide bubbles. The roughness of the Mantus candy is microscopic – lots of cracks and very small agran, which carbon dioxide can meet and unite in a bubble. The coarse flat blocks the polar attraction between water molecules, so the resistance to the gas bubble is small. Also, the candy pieces are compressed and relatively heavy, so they are deposited fast in the fluid, especially in the cola.
