When you drop a mint candy on a soda why does it explodes? What exactly is happening in this event? But if you dropped a mentos gum it wont explode? What are the difference between the mint candy and gum when dropped un a soda whereas the soda reacts with the mint candy but doesnt react with the gum? Is the reaction physical or chemical?
