    Which Antacid Works the Best?      Heartburn is a condition characterized by a burning feeling in the chest and a sour or bitter taste in the mouth. Heartburn usually develops when the acidic contents of the stomach flow back, or regurgitate, into the esophagus, the muscular tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. Approximately one in ten adults experience heartburn once a week. Heartburn is more common in pregnant women because of the pressure the expanding

  • Notes On Antacid Potency And Its Effects On Their Knowledge Of Acids, Bases, And Neutralization

    1038 Words  | 5 Pages

    Honors Chemistry P3 Group 3 Topic: Antacid Potency Due Date: 9/30/16 Background Research For the scientists project, they are researching different brands of antacid and their potency to further expand their knowledge of acids, bases, and neutralization. Their problem statement is ‘which liquid antacid brand is most potent?’ In the scientist’s experiment, their independent variable is the brand of liquid antacid. The dependent variable is the amount of drops of antacid it takes for the acid inside the

  • Gastrointestinal Disorders And The Ways Medication Can Alter This Pathophysiology

    1360 Words  | 6 Pages

    Millions of Americans are diagnosed with gastrointestinal disorders every year. Many can be controlled with lifestyle changes and medication. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is one of these gastrointestinal disorders that can be controlled with medication. Looking at pharmaceutical advertising, this paper will focus on two different internet gastrointestinal medication advertisements, one that is FDA approved and one that is not. Both were found on the internet that targets the general population

  • The Effect Of Heartburn On Your Stomach

    1363 Words  | 6 Pages

    generally caused by imbalanced gastric juices/acids. Antacids are a type of medication, which corrects the pH balance in your stomach. A pH scale is a scale that ranges from 0-14, with 0 being the most acidic, 7 being neutral, and 14 being most basic. There are many types of antacids, such as sodium bicarbonate (contains baking soda), calcium carbonate, there is also aluminum and magnesium based antacids. A combination of aluminum and magnesium based antacids also exist. These come in liquid and solid tablet

  • Digestive Diseases And The Digestive Tract

    Some experience mild symptoms only happening occasionally after eating a certain food but many struggle with severe symptoms on a daily basis, leading them to consume large amounts of antacids to try and get relief. Acid reflux is very common. “The American College of Gastroenterology says that over 60 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a month and at least 15 million as often as daily” (MacGill, 2015). Acid reflux

  • Affects The Dissolving Time In The Hydrochloric Acid

    1817 Words  | 8 Pages

    Introduction What if the density of the pill affects the dissolving time in the hydrochloric acid? During this experiment, this question will be answered. The denser the pill, then the longer dissolving rate when time is a function of the dissolving rate. Tablets, coated tablets, gel capsules, and hard capsules will be tested, and all of these each have a different densities. Medicine is a very important part in keeping humans alive and healthy. Different types are capable of many things such

  • Lab Report: Titration Of An Antacid

    2449 Words  | 10 Pages

    1 Experiment 7: Titration of an Antacid Objective: In this experiment, you will standardize a solution of base using the analytical tecnique known as titration. Using this standardized solution, you will determine the acid neutralizing power of a commercially available antacid tablet. Introduction An understanding of the properties of acids and bases is an essential part of understanding chemical reactions (see Tro, pp 167-171). In aqueous solutions, a compound that produces H+ ions upon dissolution

  • Factors That Affect The Heat Of An Antacid Tablets Lab

    1065 Words  | 5 Pages

    Question: There are some factors that affect the rate of which a reaction occurs. This lab will test the reaction of an antacid tablet with the heat of the water. The main question is; How does the heat of the water affect the rate at which the antacid tablet reacts and or affects the overall experiment/ reaction. Hypothesis: The antacid tablet will react faster in warm water due to the increased temperature will create more kinetic energy in the reactants which will cause the particles to move faster
