Science Project: Acid and Soda Can Reaction
I am doing a science project, and I need information as to the reaction of aluminum cans with the acids in Pepsi and/or Coke. If possible, please contact me as soon as possible.Ashleigh W.

Have your cans of Pepsi or coke spilt all over the floor? If not, why not and if so, what has gone wrong?

There basically is no reaction because the inside of the can has an ultra thin "plastic" coating on it, therefore the acids do not get to the aluminum.James Watts

The acid in question is carbonic acid. The resistance of aluminum to it is easily researched.
