Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the possible relationship between container type and carbonation level in Coca-Cola. The main appeal of a carbonated drink can, for some people, may the carbonation in the beverage itself. If the Coca-Cola glass bottle contains the most carbonation then the hypothesis of this experiment will be supported . The independent variable was the three different Coca Cola containers being tested, aluminum cans, glass bottles, and plastic bottles. The dependent variable was the amount of carbonation in each of the containers. The experiment's data was collected by conducting various trials of the Coca-Cola from different types of containers between 24 hour periods. A literature review was conducted by looking up articles on the Coca Cola products and on carbonation. The results of this experiment suggest that either aluminum cans, glass bottles, or plastic bottles have the most carbonation out of their other test subjects.
