Question Elevated carbonation


Tilts at Tables
If I were to bottle a bevy @ sea level, would it carry more explosive force, if opened on a mountain top ?

I am reasoning, all that atmosphere stacked up at sea level, present during bottling just isn’t there, at higher elevations,,,
Could there be an appreciable difference?

Is this a source of perpetual energy?

If I have a bag of Fritos chips, at around sea level, and transport those chips to 7000 ft to a campsite, the bag will be puffy enough to burst.

Boxed cake mixes state that you need to compensate accordingly at higher elevation or else the cake won't "rise."

Perhaps if you drove fast enough to that mountain top it could explode before you even tried to open it?

The difference is not only atmospheric, but also gravitational.
