By: The Flinn Staff
Item #: AP5934
The Upset Tummy? MOM to the Rescue! Chemical Demonstration Kit is an eye-catching, spectacular approach to teaching solubility, acid–base and “antacid-testing” consumer chemistry. Simulate the use of Milk of Magnesia (MOM) in a stomach.
Mix a suspension of Milk of Magnesia (MOM) with universal indicator, add simulated stomach acid, and observe the dramatic rainbow of colors as the antacid dissolves in the acid! And... it’s not over yet! Simply add more acid and watch as the colors continue to change and indicate the reaction of the MOM with the “stomach acid.” An eye-catching, spectacular demonstration to teach solubility, acid–base and “antacid-testing” consumer chemistry! Teacher Demonstration Notes included.
Concepts: Solubility, Ksp, acid–base neutralization, antacids. Time Required: 15 minutes Materials Provided: Milk of Magnesia (MOM) suspension, hydrochloric acid solution, universal indicator solution, and Beral-type pipets.
