Pouring ml of Coke into the liter tank diluted it by a factor of 45, so any change it made to the density of the water would have been minuscule. By adding salt to the tank, you can increase the density of the water which is now salt water. What is escape velocity? After one class session that included this demonstration, I found the Diet Coke floating in caramel-colored water, and the empty Coke can beside the tank. A 16th century carving of Archimedes getting into his bath. Materials sink if like regular Coke they are more dense than water, while less-dense materials, like Diet Coke, float. Automatically updates every 5 minutes.
However, if you put a can of Diet Coke into the same pool, it would float. Another fun fact: Coca-Cola was invented by a man seeking a cure for the morphine addiction he acquired during the Civil War, and he marketed Coca-Cola as that. In any event, initially, this floating problem seems like something that breaks physics because both cans are the exact same size and contain exactly the same amount of liquid. Eventually, Archimedes hatched a cunning plan to submerse the crown and measure the amount of water it displaced and compare that to the amount of water displaced by an equal mass of pure gold. If the crown had been made with less dense materials than pure gold including silver, it would displace more water than the gold bar. A 16th century carving of Archimedes getting into his bath. But it makes a great anecdote for high school science teachers to tell their students I guess. Unfortunately, this is not true at all either. This results in one can floating and the other sinking and science teachers everywhere having a trick to go along with their often questionably accurate anecdotes.

Coke heavier regular than is coke diet
The first polls close in. This leaves just under 25 ml head space. If the object is less dense than the fluid, the object floats to a level where the buoyant force balances gravity. Diet sodas, on the other hand, use artificial sweeteners such as aspartame. Make sure that no air bubbles are trapped under the can when you place it in the water. Cans of regular soda tend to be more dense than water, so they sink. World globe An icon of the world globe, indicating different international options. To be safe, the beaker contains about grams of salt, which is more than enough to raise the heaviest Coke can listed above.
