The coke, an acid, reacts chemically with the mint, which is an Alkali. This reaction produces CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) which causes the coke to fizz.
The main benefit of a CO2 wine opener is the ease and speed with which you can open a bottle of wine. The opener injects a small amount of gas into the bottle with a needle through the cork which pushes the cork quickly out of the bottle.
Coke goes flat because the carbonation used to make it fizzy is put into the soda under pressure. Once the cap is removed, it is no longer under pressure and the CO2 gas can escape. The bubbles you see are made of CO2 (Carbon Dioxide). Once the CO2 is gone it is flat.
The answer is probably similar to why Mentos and Coke explode. It was written about in New Scientist and explored in Mythbusters in about 2008. In that case, the mint mentos has small pits in the rough surface, which increases the amount of surface area of the mint. Carbon Dioxide in Coke (CO2) forms in the small pits very quicky. The same experiement will not work with Fruit mentos, which has a shiny hard surface. There is evidence that the arabic gum on the surface of sweets also works to make the reaction faster, but no-one has explained why. It works better with diet coke, probably because the artifical sweetener is more reactive that regular sugar, creating more gas. As gas forms it expands the volume inside the bottle and creates pressure. Needing a release, it explodes out of the mouth of the bottle. While there may not have been a particular study of berrocca, those big tablets also have a large, pitted surface area. In addition, Berocca contains socium bicarbonate, which reacts with acids to create CO2, so you get even more carbon dioxide forming. Without wasting money, you can create a similar chemical reaction by using common vinegar and Soda Bicard, both much cheaper that coke or sweets and available from most supermarkets.
It explodesAre you talking about a mint such as Mentos? If so, the mint won't actually explode. When the mint (usually mint-flavoured) is dropped into the Coca-Cola (usually diet coke), the rough surface on the mint is filled with CO2 (carbon dioxide found in the coke). The rough surface has many small holes which allow the CO2 to gather and create a tremendous amount of foam. The rough surface eventually starts to wear off, resulting in less foam.
Talking to coca cola specialist Mary, I have found the following: Coke Classic- 3.4 - 4.2 Diet Coke- 3.1 - 4.1 Sprite- 3.2 - 4.2 Fanta Orange- 1.4 - 3.21 volume measured is 1 liter of CO2 disolved in 1 liter of Coke special ingredient at the secret CO2 coke temperature 14.7lbs per square inch at sea level like 3.4-4.2 RAHUL ZOTA

there is more coarbon dioxide in diet coke than in sprite as the carbonation process of diet coke in in much higher quantities the CO2 in the bottle of diet coike is much higher than in sprite eg the amount of co2 given off in 330 ml of coca cola is 660 cm3 where as the amount given off from a sprite can is 400cm3 get it?
The CO2 (Carbon dioxide) being released from the can.
well just count how many seconds you hesr when it shizzles and that's how much ouzes of co2 is ina bottle of soda
Every can/bottle of coke is carbonated (made fizzy) by infuseing the coke with the gas co2 (one carbon atom (c) joined with 2 oxygen atoms (o2)) this is the gas that can be seen bubbleing to the top.
I can say for a fact that there is alot more than 2.2g CO2/Liter I took an unopened Coke and weighed it and then I opened it up, closed it and shook it multiple times until there was no more buildup of pressure. I then let it sit for a few days repeating when I noticed the bottle was getting pressurized. This was also done with the bottle at room temperature where the CO2 will be released the quickeset without causing the liquids to evaporate. At the end of this I weighed the bottle again and found it lost 4.42g. This was a .591mL plastic soda bottle. This is equivilant to 7.48g of CO2/Liter of Coka Cola So to sum it up: In 1 Liter of Coka Cola there is 7.48g of CO2, could be a little more if I let it sit even longer, but it is negligable at that point, only maybe .02g more. Keep in mind that various types of sodas will be differant as some soda is more carbonated than others.
coca cola can contain anywhere between 4-7 grams of CO2 per ml.
2.7 kg of CO2 is in 1 litre of diesel fuel
It is exactly like coke... When the bottle is closed there are no bubbles because the pressure in the bottle is higher than the pressure outside the bottle. When you open the bottle you let the pressure out and now the coke is at the same pressure as the air around you. As a result the CO2 escapes the coke and you see bubbles. Air is only a small part Oxygen. Air is mostly Nitrogen. When a diver goes underwater the nitrogen is pushed into his blood like the coke in the example. If he comes up too quickly then his blood acts like the coke in a freshly opened bottle and the nitrogen bubbles out.
