What happens when you mix milk and Coke? Really weird stuff

If you love science, or at least love to watch cool stuff, you’re in for a treat. This is the YouTube Coke and milk experiment. If you watch the video, you’ll see that once milk is poured into the Coke bottle, there is a strange reaction. Soon the colours of Coke and milk both separate, sediment appears at the bottom and the top half of the bottle contains a murky liquid one can only describe as dish water-esque.

Wanna know why? It’s a reaction of the Phosphoric Acid contained in the Coke with the milk. ‘Phosphoric Acid molecules attach to the milk giving them more density, this separates these molecules from the rest, while the remaining liquid that makes up milk and Coke becomes lighter and floats on top’. The more you know!
