    Has anyone tried this? Does anyone know the reason this happens?

    Prey tell, have you taken various soda pops to test in you daily bath. I bet your rubber ducky is not too pleased with you. LOL

    My guess is that HFS in high concentrations is heavy so that it will not allow a thin can filled with carbonated water to float.

    Just the opposite maybe true with aspartame.

    Yep, we did this in physics class.. it's due to the amount of sugar in coke classic. Unreal amount of sugar...

    I supposed if you wanted to be technical, you could say that Coke's density is different than the Diet Coke.

    I guess that your typical answer from a college kid, right?

    But I still find it hard to believe.

    Yet another reason to hate HFCS!

    That's not why.

    Equal parts of artificial sugar to real. It's the density level, as SEV mentioned.

    I saw a demonstration of this in my 3rd grade class, and I remember it well. They do not use equal parts artificial sugar to real. Artificial sugar is much sweeter. If you use "Sweet and Low" or something in your coffee, you don't need as many packets to make it sweet as you would with regular sugar. In a sense, everyone is right because it is the use of more regular sugar or HFCS than artificial sweetener makes regular coke more dense than diet.

    By equal parts, I meant that they try to balance the sweetness.

    I should have been more clear. Anyways, it still has to do with density.

    I think phenylketonurics weigh as much as people without phenylketonuria.
