Transcript of How much gas does your favorite beverage produce

How much gas does your favorite beverage produce?
Hypothesis and Variables
My hypothesis is that in the soda there would be the most gas in the stomach and the milk would have the least amount of gas. The independent variable is the type of beverage. I used coke for the soda, milk, mango juice, and water. The controlled variable is the amount of the beverage being used in each bottle. The dependent variable is what I measured in the bottle and what was affected during the experiment.
Materials List
The materials that I used for my project was:
4 Plastic Bottles
4 Balloons
Heating Pad/Pot
Soda - coke
Juice - mango
Measuring cup and spoon
1. Pour an equal amount of each beverage into separate plastic bottles.
2. Mix a couple teaspoons of vinegar into each beverage. The vinegar will represent your stomach’s acid.
3. Blow-up and release the air in a balloon for each bottle. This will stretch the balloons so they are more easily inflated.
4. Stretch the open end of a balloon over the opening of each bottle.
5. Place the bottles on a warm heating pad.
6. Observe the balloons at different intervals as the liquids begin to heat.
7. Repeat for the rest of the bottles.
This project examines which beverages produce the most gas. Some beverages release more gas into your stomach than others. It's saying which beverages release the most gas or how does the gas release by beverages affect your stomach.

In conclusion, my hypothesis was correct. Any type of soda would react the fastest and the milk the slowest. The soda had the most fizz so it reacted quicker than any other beverages. In my experiment soda came first, than the milk, juice, and then water. The milk had the slowest result in producing acidity to your body. Milk is good for you to help relieve stomach acid or pains.
Background Research

The question that I’m going to answer with the experiment is how much gas does your favorite beverage produce. The keywords that I used was gas, produce, beverages, fizz, acid, stomach, balloons, plastic bottles, and vinegar. Why does gas in the stomach happen? The answer is that gas in the digestive tract is usually caused by swallowing air and by the breakdown of certain foods in the large intestine by bacteria.Everyone swallows a small amount of air when eating and drinking. Also, how does gas in your body happen? Well, The most common symptoms of gas are burping, passing gas, bloating, and abdominal pain or discomfort. However, not everyone experiences these symptoms. And, how can you prevent the gas in your stomach from happening. You can avoid or reduce the amount of gas-producing foods you eat. Belching or burping is your body's way of expelling excess air from your stomach. It's a normal reflex caused by swallowing air. You may swallow excess air if you eat or drink too fast, talk while you eat, chew gum or suck on hard candies, drink carbonated beverages, or smoke.

What causes the gas to increase and decrease? Boyle's Law explains how the pressure and volume of a gas are related. This law states that when the temperature and mass of a gas sample are held constant, the pressure of the gas and its volume have an inverse relationship. So as the pressure increases, the volume of the gas decreases. As the pressure decreases, the volume increases. Amontons' Law explains how pressure and temperature are related. When a gas sample is held at a constant volume, the pressure and temperature have a direct proportional relationship. As the pressure of the gas increases, the temperature increases, and as the pressure decreases, the temperature decreases as well. Where does the gas occur? It occurs in the digestive tract and the large, muscular tube that extends from the mouth to the anus, where the movement of muscles, along with the release of hormones and enzymes, allows for the digestion of food. Gas leaves the body when people burp through the mouth or pass gas through the anus.
