Alka Seltzer mixture mainly consists of 3 active ingredients; aspirin, citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. The functions of the following components are as follows; Aspirin acts a pain reliever and as an anti-inflammatory (which reduces swelling and inflammation). It does this by preventing the action of a substance known as cyclo-oxygenase which produces chemicals in the body. Sodium hydrogen carbonate and citric acid neutralizes and reduces stomach acid when they react with water.
Mika Nijhawan 9/29- 10/10 2 MENTOS AND SODA LAB REPORT State the Problem Does the type of soda affect the size of the explosion, after mentos are added? Develop a Hypothesis If seven mentos to a 2L bottle of Diet Pepsi, then it will create the biggest geyser out of Coke, Fanta, & Root Beer because Diet Pepsi has potassium benzoate, aspartame, and the carbonation which react to mentos. Design an Experiment Materials List: 1 clear test tube 35 original flavored Mentos candies (2 1/2 rolls) 1 3x5 index card 4 2L bottles of soda (all different flavors/types) 1 2L bottle of soda water 1 100 mL graduated cylinder 1 400 mL beaker 1 pair of tweezers (preferably large) 1 small container Procedure: Stack seven mentos in the test tube When given permission take the test tube, soda bottles, index cards, and the remaining 25 mentos, to the designated area Place one of the four soda bottles on a flat area Open the soda bottle and place the 3x5 index card over it With the index card over the soda bottle, flip the test tube over and place it on the index card, so the test tube is lined with
Introduction Alka-Seltzer has been on the market since 1931 and has helped to relieve indigestion and upset stomach. The tablets began to fizz and bubble when dropped into water. “The fizziness happens when baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and citric acid react chemically in water. They yield sodium citrate, water and carbon dioxide gas, which causes bubbles.” Based on this information, we will measure the reaction time of AlKa- Seltzer dissolved in 200 ml of water at 3 different tempertures in the first portion of this experiment.
Alka-Seltzer is a medical drug that works as a pain reliever and an antacid. The pain reliever used is aspirin and the antacid used is baking soda. When sodium bicarbonate dissolves in water it splits apart into sodium and bicarbonate ions. The bicarbonates reacts with hydrogen ions from citric acid to form carbon dioxide gas and water. This is how the bubbles are made.
How does the amount of baking soda mixed with vinegar affect the volume of gas produced per 10 seconds? A reaction is when (usually) a solute acts on a solvent to create a reaction. An example of a reaction is an explosion, Here we will be using baking soda and vinegar which are our two components which will cause for a reaction to take place. Reactions can be affected by several things such as temperature, concentration and the presence or absence of a catalyst which is a substance which can increase the rate of reaction.
Carly Herrin American counterculture of the 1960s was one of the most powerful movements that had a lasting influence on American society in the following decades. The counterculture movement is strongly associated with the hippies, sexual revolution, and the protests against Vietnam War. The movement was shaped up by the rejection of the social norms of hippies’ parents but evolved to embrace more specific political and societal goals, including the withdrawal from Vietnam, environmentalism, gender equality, and the expansion of civil liberties. “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test” by Tom Wolfe is an excellent non-fiction work that allows to see the movement from the inside and in the specific details of the daily hippie life. Even though the
Everyone knows the simple and easy experiment of vinegar and baking soda, but do you really know how it works. This paper will not only explain what makes these two very different chemicals react, but also what materials you will need to accomplish this easy science experiment. Baking soda and vinegar are two different chemical with two very different uses, they are not really even supposed to be used for a science experiment, take vinegar for example, some individuals use vinegar for cooking. Baking soda has a very different use, it is used for bee-stings. When vinegar and baking soda are combined, the hydrogen ions in the vinegar interact with the sodium and bicarbonate in the baking soda.
If I had a household product labeled sodium bicarbonate, I would add an acidic substance and expect bubble to be created. As we know acid reacts with bubbles when combined with sodium bicarbonate. 2.

The Problem: How does temperature affect the dissolving time of an antacid tablet? Antacid tablets are medicines that help neutralize the acid in your stomach. Antacid tablets are made of numerous numbers of components, such as sodium bicarbonate (baking powder), magnesium hydroxide, critic acid, and many others. When Antacid tablets are placed in water, they undergo a chemical reaction, where the sodium bicarbonate breaks apart to make sodium and bicarbonate ions. When the bicarbonate ions collide with hydrogen ions, it produces carbonic acid.
When a solute acts on a solvent a chemical reaction takes place. Here we will be using baking soda and vinegar which are our two components which will cause a chemical reaction. Reactions can be affected by several things such as temperature, concentration and the presence or absence of a catalyst which is a substance which can increase the rate of the reaction. To determine the rate of a reaction there are many methods that can be used.
H2CO3 The popping sound we hear when we open the can of fizzy drink, the bubbles and sparkle we see in the soft drink, and the feeling of bubble popping on your tongue, all of these are due to carbon dioxide escaping from solution. One of the reasons people love to drink
Upon cooling, it was shaken until no bubbles were formed. 20 mL of each brand of soft drinks was titrated with NaOH solution. 3 drops of phenolphthalein was used as an indicator if it has already completely reacted. The acidity can then be calculated referring on the known concentration and volume of base; and the known volume of acid.
Then the balloon is lifted up so that the baking soda runs into bottle to react with the vinegar inside. Immediately the balloon is inflated by the carbon dioxide formed. The baking soda is kept constant when the experiment is repeated for another different amount of vinegar. Results/Findings When sodium bicarbonate and vinegar mix,
Trial 4 was still very wet at bottom Bubbles could be heard popping when in water There were holes when hardening from bubbles An exothermic reaction occurred therefore the water bath became colder Quantitative: Hydrogen Ion Concentration of Bath Bombs: Bath Bomb
