"1. In this experiment I will be measuring how much gas is in beverages and the most gas releases into the balloon. 2. I became interested in this experiment because my grandmother had a gastric bypass and when you get a gastric bypass you shouldn't drink beverages that have gas because it can make the stomach burst. 3.The results for this experiment showed that after averaging my 15 trials, Dr.Pepper released enough gas to make the balloon's circumference increase to 5.4875 inches. Coca-Cola released enough gas to make the balloon's circumference increase to 5.4 inches. Red Bull released enough gas to make the balloon's circumference increase to 4.94583 inches. Orange Juice released enough gas to make the balloon's circumference increase to 5.3875 inches. 2% Milk released enough gas to make the balloon's circumference increase to 5.07083 inches. This information indicates that Dr.Pepper has the most gas and Red Bull has the least amount of gas. 4.This information can help people because some people can't have gas beverages and it affects their stomach.
