How To Make A Generator That Runs On Coca-cola! (Experiment!)

It Runs on Coca-cola!!! Chemical Reactions- Aluminum + water 2Al + 6H2O = 2Al(OH)3 + 3H2
Aluminum + water + Sodium Hydroxide 2Al + 2NaOH + 6H2O = 2NaAl(OH)4 + 3H2

(Experimental Fun)
Aluminum naturally reacts with water but it quickly forms an aluminum oxide on the aluminum surface and that protects it from the water. I used sodium hydroxide to clean off the aluminum oxide from the cans so that it could react with the water that is inside coca-cola, when this happens it releases large volumes of hydrogen gas. The reaction gets hot and can produce lots of steam and chemical vapors, I ran the gas through a long pipe first to act as a condenser to help eliminate the steam and then through a water bubbler and carbon filter so it would clean out any remaining steam and and chemical vapors, the hydrogen then runs into the engine intake and is used as the fuel to run the Engine.

  2. Don't tell me that you couldn't build an Electric car that runs on aluminum cans and recycled stuff and save the planet!!! Just don't tell my mom…what I'm doing in the basement..LOL

  3. Since when does aluminum react with water??? 2Al+6H20->H2???? He thinks you guys are idiots. Whats actually happening is
    This process is called amalgamation.
