Calculate the maximum volume in mL of 0.15 M HCl that each of the following antacid formulations would be expected to neutralize. Assume complete neutralization. (Show work.)
a) a tablet containing 250 mg Al(OH)3 and 150 mg Mg(OH)2

b) a tablet containing 850 mg of CaCO3

Step 1

Given

Mass of Al(OH)3 = 250mg

Mass of Mg(OH)2 = 150mg

Mass of CaCO3 = 850mg

Molarity of HCl= 0.15M

The reactions with the given compounds are

Step 2

No of moles

Step 3

According to the reactions

3 moles of HCl are required per mole of Al(OH)3 and 2 moles of HCl are re...
