As we know, if a soft drink can is shaken and then opened, the drink escapes violently. However, if after shaking the can we tap it several times with a metal spoon, no such "explosion" of the drink occurs. Why?

Physical Properties of Solutions
University of Maryland - University College
In chemistry, a solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances. The term "solution" is also used to refer to the resultant mixture. The solution is usually a fluid. The particles of a solute are dispersed or dissolved in the solvent. The resulting solution is also called the solvent. The solvent is the continuous phase.
In physics and thermodynamics, the natural tendency of a system to change its state is its tendency to increase the entropy of the system. It is a measure of the disorder in a system.

so inside the soda can imagine this. We actually have a bunch of bubbles. There are kind of stuck to the walls of the Qin. Okay, those bubbles If you shake the more you shake, the more off these bubbles you're gonna form Okay, all around. And once you open this, bubbles are the first ones to explode to go out. Okay, End. Um, that could be considered as a site for nuclear fission. Okay, just like when you have a solid, um, that you want to precipitate and you put the little crystal to facilitate the precipitation. Those bubbles will facilitate more and more gas to escape from the solution. OK, now the idea is, if you tap the sides with, say, a metal spoon, you will destroy this bubbles, Right? So say that from the situation where you have many, many bubbles here in the side, you give it a few taps and you can destroy a fuse. Now, this bubble the amount of the of bubbles in the science is much smaller, so the explosion won't be as intense
