Phil tries to create carbonation on his own and initially fails. He consults his Book of Science to learn more about what makes drinks fizz. He learns that the container of the drink needs to be pressurized and later explains the behavior of carbon dioxide. He makes sure to clarify that carbonation is not a chemical reaction.
Hank explains the properties of Carbon and its flexible bonding criteria, which allows it to bond with essentially any other element. He also mentions that Carbon is the core atom of living structures and explains why this is the case.
Beakman explains how diamonds are made from carbon and then describes what elements and compounds are. He combines sulfuric acid and sugar to create a black carbon substance that looks like coal to demo that carbon is in sugar. Then he uses an animated clip to explain how scientists think coal makes diamonds.
Beakman puts raisins in some soda and notes that the raisins rise and fall. He explains that this phenomena occurs because carbon dioxide bubbles from the carbonated beverage carry the raisins up to the surface of the liquid and that they fall back down once they reach the air.
