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 milk of magnesia with the "stomach acid." An eye-catching, spectacular demonstration to teach solubility, acid-base, and "antacid-testing" consumer chemistry! Teacher Demonstration Notes included. Enough materials are included to perform the demonstration seven times.
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.
