How are bubbles created?

  1. Nov 8, 2009 #1
    What are air bubbles?

    In the typical coke can analogy. As you open the can carbon dioxide goes out as bubbles. Are bubbles created when there is a sudden change in pressure. Emphasis on sudden there.

    Thanks for the help :smile:

    Hi sameeralord! :smile:

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucleation#Examples_of_nucleation"
    See the same page for more details.

    (For other interesting facts about bubbles, see the physicstoday article at http://scitation.aip.org/journals/doc/PHTOAD-ft/vol_56/iss_2/36_1.shtml" [Broken]! :biggrin:)
