    An antacid is composed of a basic chemical compound (the active ingredient), which is an essential component of a neutralization reaction. When this compound along with an acidic compound (HCl) dissociates, it react and form neutralized components such as water and a salt. This is an ideal mechanism of action for individuals who suffer from acid reflux or heartburn conditions because the excessive HCl that is found in the stomach can be alleviated by ingesting antacid tablets.

    The purpose of today’s lab was to determine how effective antacids are at neutralizing HCl. This experiment required us to place 3 antacids tablets into 3 Erlenmeyer flasks. Next we were required to add 50.00 mL of 0.500M HCl and five drops of phenolphthalein. Finally, we needed to titrate NaOH into the flasks. Each antacid brand required a different amount of NaOH in order for it to be completely titrated. The data collected from the experiment allowed each group to calculate the cost…
