I use Coca-Cola to clean batteries, and have heard that if you leave 
a nail in a glass of Coca-Cola it will be completely gone within 24 
hours.  I am conducting a science fair project, in which I am using an 
assortment on liquids and recording their affects on metals.  Please 
let me know why Coca-Cola is corrosive, and what effect does it have 
on our stomachs.

Thanks for your time,
Shearer, Canyon R.
