why a diet soda floats and a beer doesn't

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why a can of diet soda floats in the fishing hole, buy a can of regular soda or beer sinks. Just think how cold your beer could be kept if it just floated in the fishing hole, but then again maybe someone is trying to tell me to drink diet (since it floats).

go figure

The answer is the difference in densities of the liquids inside the cans. Diet sodas have no sugar and lots of carbon dioxide so the liquid inside is less dense than the water so they float. Regular soda and beer contain carbon dioxide also but the sugar and carbohydrates make them more dense than water, so down the hole they go. You need to try the experiment using light beer.

Let us know the result!
