Hi All,I was wondering...are there any other uses for ' fizzyness ' in liquids ? apart from making drinks that make you burp ?Thanksneil

After a while, water dissolves the paper packet, the salt/sugar/menthos candies inside the packet comes in contact with the fizzy water in the barrel...huge release of gas...the ship comes up.Or you could make a little toy-ship with the same principle using the released gas as propulsion (to move a propeller or as a little reaction engine, ecc).
Shake the bottle vigourously & the cork makes a good cannonball!

It can be used to pressurize gas caps that are being depleted in oil fields to put pressure back into a reservoir and increase the oil recovered over the life of the field. It is being done now.(Thus ends the Article of Science. Amen)
It will remove tarnish from jewelry or coins.
Some of this is nomenclature.There are many cases where we generate gas from a liquid, but we don't normally call it fuzziness unless it is in a drink.The formation of foams are a common use for gasses in liquids (sometimes theses foams are solidified, such as in bread or polyurethane, but other times they remain as a liquid/gas foam.As Alberto suggests, the creation of gas from chemical reactions can be used to generate power in a limited way (not so much fizzy drinks, as dropping alkasalsas into water, or just dropping a carbonate of any kind into a week acid.

Most "fizzy drinks" contain dissolved CO2 sometimes known as carbonic acid, which is useful for cleaning many things. Club soda is probably the best but I'm sure soda pop or even champagne would work just as well. Carbonic acid...It will remove tarnish from jewelry or coins.It gently cleans many stains from clothing.It removes sticky gum from tangled hair.It loosens rust from metal such as nuts and bolts, or chrome car bumpers.andIt can be used to clean battery terminals.
