Problem: How does the temperature of water used to dissolve an Alka-Seltzer tablet affect the amount of time it would take for the tablet to completely dissolve? An Alka-Seltzer tablet is a medicine tablet made with baking soda used as a pain reliever for “headaches, body aches, pain, heartburn, acid indigestion, and sour stomach” (Alka-Seltzer Tablets). It is put into water, left to dissolve and then consumed. When an Alka-Seltzer tablet is dropped into h20, a chemical reaction immediately takes place and produces bubbles made out of carbon dioxide as a product of the collision (Olson 2). When in its original powder (dry) form, the Alka-Seltzer’s two main ingredients: citric acid and sodium bicarbonate are just there and not reacting to each
The goal of the experiment is to synthesize a bromohexane compound from 1-hexene and HBr(aq) under reflux conditions and use the silver nitrate and sodium iodide tests to determine if the product is a primary or secondary hydrocarbon. The heterogeneous reaction mixture contains 1-hexene, 48% HBr(aq), and tetrabutylammonium bromide and was heated to under reflux conditions. Heating under reflux means that the reaction mixture is heated at its boiling point so that the reaction can proceed at a faster rate. The attached reflux condenser allows volatile substances to return to the reaction flask so that no material is lost. Since alkenes are immiscible with concentrated HBr, tetrabutylammonium bromide is used as a phase-transfer catalyst.
Sodium Bicarbonate mixed with Hydrochloric acid. The chemical reaction observed showed that there was fizzing and bubbling, this is evidence that a new gas was being produced. This new gas, CO2 was generated from the reaction. After the fizzing stopped a liquid was leftover leading me to conclude the liquid leftover leading me to conclude the liquid leftover was the NaCl and H2O 4. You found a sample of a solution that has a faint odor resembling vinegar (an acid).
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.
These three compounds in combination are said to be effective against migraine headaches. Aspirin, or acetylsalicylic acid, is an analgesic and an anti-inflammatory and has an important role in preventing cardiovascular disease (Ji Ma, 2017). Caffeine is a stimulant and is the most consumed psychoactive substance in the world. Paracetamol, or acetaminophen is also an analgesic and an antipyretic (Revell,
The 0.1% is the concentration amount. Just like temperature and pH, substrate concentration can speed the reaction only up to a certain limit. When we mixed pH 3 enzyme tube with substrate tube, we used 0.3 mL of hydrogen peroxide, but if we were to increase the amount, then the experiment would have been faster. Our
One of those is alcohol. Alcohol contains antibacterial properties that can kill off the bacteria of your cavity that is the source of your pain. Begin by pouring a quarter cup full of whiskey, vodka or any type of forty percent
Mefenamic acid A Complete Guide on Taking Mefenamic Acid Mefenamic acid is a common medication used to treat various types of pain. It belongs to a group of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which is typically taken by mouth. It works by reducing your body's production of an inflammatory substance that causes fever, swelling and pain. Part 1: Precautions Before Taking Mefenamic Acid Although mefenamic acid is a medication that may be bought over-the-counter, there are some things to keep in mind before taking it, including: • Tell your doctor/pharmacist if you are allergic to mefenamic acid, aspirin or other NSAID such as ibuprofen or naproxen.
There is an extended release formulation of tramadol used to treat persistent severe pain. In addition, it is hepatically metabolized and is converted to an active metabolite. Tramadol has a weak opioid property at μ-opioid receptors and monoaminergic activity. Moreover, tramadol is generally well endured, however, it has side effects such as insomnia, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, central nervous system stimulation. To add, Tramadol can stop or slow breathing when starting using this drug or changing its dose.
I chose the most common medications that are frequently used, those being ; Beta Blockers, ACE inhibitors, and Angiotensin receptor blockers. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of adrenaline in the body which is also known as (hormone epinephrine). The beta blockers work by opening up the blood vessels to improve the blood flow. The most common symptoms that come with beta blockers are dizziness and dry mouth, skin, or eyes. As for ACE inhibitors they serve to primarily relax the blood vessels.
Clonidine is a commonly used antihypertensive agent that reduces sympathetic tone, decreasing systemic vascular resistance, heart rate, and blood pressure. In anesthesia, clonidine is used as an adjunct for epidural, caudal, and peripheral nerve block anesthesia and analgesia. It is often used in the management of patients with chronic neuropathic pain to increase the efficacy of epidural opioid infusions. When given epidurally, the analgesic effect of clonidine is segmental, being localized to the level at which it is injected or infused. When added to local anesthetics of intermediate duration (eg, mepivacaine or lidocaine) administered for epidural or peripheral nerve block, clonidine will markedly prolong both the anesthetic and analgesic effects.
Once hydrogen and the baking soda ions bump into each other, they form carbonic acid (H2CO3). Carbonic acid decays to form carbon dioxide and water. The formation of the carbon dioxide causes the fizzing action seen in the experiment. It is shown in the equation: H+ (aq) + HCO3 - (aq)
Objectives In this lab, you will investigate the percent composition by mass of CO2 in Alka-Seltzer® tablets. In addition, you will find out how much CO2 is released into the atmosphere as 2 Alka-Seltzer® tablets chemically react in vinegar.

Alka-Seltzer is something that when it gets put into water it has a chemical reaction because it starts to bubble up and when it starts to bubble up the bubbles are carbon dioxide gas. Chemical reactions start when matter is mixed with other matter, you can recognize new compounds by their color or by their acid levels or how a compound looks, feels, or how it acts. Substances create a solid compound. The chemical reaction also happens from more products and properties. They can have one or more products or properties.
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.
