Coke & Butane = Slow Motion Rockets - The Slow Mo Guys 4K


Team Trees still going strong! Let's plant 20,000,000 trees!
In this video Gav and Dan attempt to land a coke bottle on the moon using a bit of butane. They came 238,899.99 miles short but it was a good effort. Follow us on Instagram! gavinfree

    Why not use carbonated water instead of Coke? Maybe a better effect and less sticky.

    If you get a cap from gatorade or som' similar, with a reduction in diameter you'll triple the flight time, speed and distance. I've done it with a hand pump and water (0.5L PET) got about 15m high and 40m away… remake? 🙄🙄🙄

    So I did this exact experiment a couple years ago for my college physics class. Got a 95% grade on it too. But anyhow I experimented with flat coke, carbonated coke and plain tap water. Each was experimented with at both room temperature and heated to 140 degrees. 3 runs of each of those combinations. Lots of butane and bottles used lol. The goal was to find out if the reaction was caused by additives in the coke, the carbonation or purely temperature. I timed each run from the moment the bottle launched to when it landed back on the ground to gauge how much thrust there was and averaged all the times for each liquid/temperature category. I also put the butane into a separate container and then poured it into the coke bottle to minimize the time it had to change the temp of the liquid for better accuracy of the experiment. What I found was that the carbonation had virtually no effect on the explosiveness of the reaction but rather the temperature of the liquid was most responsible. Basically the greater the temperature difference between the liquid and the butane, the faster the butane boils and converts to gas.
