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.
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.
Hank explains the Calvin Cycle, the light-independent reactions that occur within a plant to turn sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into energy. The Calvin Cycle is broken down into three steps: Fixation, Reduction, and Regeneration.
Mr. Krabs releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to create a year-long summer. His ultimate goal is to open The Krusty Pool and make money off of it. SpongeBob takes Mr. Krabs' global warming efforts to a whole new level.
Hank explains in-depth the series of reactions that take place for a plant to produce food for itself, also known as photosynthesis. This video also explores the prerequisites (sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water) of these reactions.
