What's the Fastest Way to Cool a Soda?

Time RequiredVery Short (≤ 1 day)
Material AvailabilityReadily available
CostLow ($20 - $50)
SafetyNo issues


So you've just finished mowing the lawn on a hot summer day, and you'd like a cold, refreshing drink as a reward. You look in the fridge, and oops! it's empty. The sodas are still sitting in the cupboard, at room temperature. What's the fastest way to get that soda down to a cold, drinkable temperature with materials readily at hand?


The goal of this project is to determine the fastest method to cool a can of soda starting at room temperature.
