would it be possible to replace carbon dioxide, with helium in a can of coke? If it is possible, would i have a high pitched voice after drinking it?
Helium is not a renewable resource too
Does your voice change when you drink cola with CO2 in it?
anyway, the point of the question was: could it be done, and would it change the pitch of your voice?if both answers are yes, then i could see a whole range of new coke products...what about coke with nitrous oxide instead of carbon dioxide...slogan, fancy a coke...are you having a laugh!
There has been some comment to the effect that it would be difficult to implement for Helium (maybe easier with NO); but the point is that in either case, as in the case of CO2, you are unlikely to breath enough of it to make a noticeable impact (since the CO2 is only a small fraction of the coke, so if you were breathing in that much of it, you would be breathing in far more coke, and beginning to drown in it).
could you not fill the can two thirds with the coke, and the rest with gas?
QuoteHelium is a consequence of alpha radiation (e.g. from uranium decay). The rate of renewal may be slow, but it is renewed (you can probably accelerate in by building lots of nuclear power stations).In that sense oil is a renewable resource- all we have to do is wait millions of years for the stuff to form again.In a more practical sense He is becoming scarce- there was a shortage a few years back.
