Product Details

So many antacid choices on the market—which one should I use? Test and compare three popular over-the-counter antacids. Students will watch an “antacid in action” as the antacid neutralizes simulated stomach acid in the presence of universal indicator. They will also determine the neutralizing ability of three common antacids using acid–base titration techniques, compare the “neutralizing power” and cost-effectiveness of these antacids, and learn the components, benefits and side effects of different types of antacids.

Includes Teacher Notes, extensive background material and reproducible student handouts. All antacid samples, chemicals and specialized equipment are provided.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
