Stretch the open end of the balloon around the mouth of the bottle and hold it there. 6. Observe the reaction and record how fast the Alka-Seltzer dissolves. 7. Place an Alka-Seltzer tablet into a second empty water bottle. 8. Pour 16 oz of room-temperature water into the bottle. 9. Stretch …show more content…
Pour a sufficient amount of room-temperature water (about 16 oz) into a large glass. 2. Add a tablespoon of salt to the water and stir well. 3. Drop an Alka-Seltzer tablet in an empty water bottle. 4. Pour the salt-water solution into the water bottle. 5. Stretch the open end of the balloon around the mouth of the bottle and hold it there. 6. Observe the reaction and record how fast the Alka-Seltzer dissolves. 7. Place an Alka-Seltzer tablet into a second empty water bottle. 8. Pour 16 oz of room-temperature water into the bottle. 9. Stretch the open end of the balloon around the mouth of the bottle and hold it there. 10. Observe the reaction and record how fast the Alka-Seltzer dissolves. 11. Repeat steps 1-10 for two more trials. Conclusion: 1. I chose to compare temperature and amount of reactants in my experiments. I chose these because I thought they would reveal the the most drastic time differences. I also chose these factors because I had prior knowledge of them before I even started chemistry. I always knew heat caused things to dissolve faster, similar to how things melt faster the higher the temperature gets above their melting point. I included an extra reactant in my second experiment because I was interested in seeing how that would affect the

Pertaining to the appearance of the oil and water before the reaction occurs, oil “sits” on top of the water because oil is less dense than water, and therefore rests on the surface of the water. The Alka-Seltzer, or effervescent tablet, reacts with the water and produces bubbles of carbon dioxide gas. This gas is less dense than both the water and oil, so it travels the the surface of the liquid, pulling a small amount of the colored water with it and creating the “lava lamp” effect. The chemical reaction that is occurring is an acid-base reaction, and results from the reaction between the ingredients in the Alka-Seltzer tablets.
As much was conducted throughout this lab, the projected completion of this lab displays that ultimately, the higher the temperature of the water, the faster the dissolving rate of the Alka-Seltzer is. In other words, the hotter the water temperature the quicker the tablet dissolves within the water in regards to the amount of time it took to dissolve. Furthermore, this experiment helps to explain that, if water is taken at a higher temperature and Alka-Seltzer is placed within the water, the Alka-Seltzer will take less time to dissolve because the higher temperatures cause the tablet to melt at a quicker rate. This compares to when Alka-Seltzer is placed in colder temperatures, where instead it takes more time to dissolve, because the lower
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.
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
You should check a person if you think that he or she has suffered cardiac arrest. If you find a person unconscious, or see him or her collapse, then you will need to check to see if he or she is responsive. Shake the person and shout to make sure that he or she is not sleeping. Pinch an infant or young child to try to wake him or her up.
Then the scientist will observe the different rates of reaction with temperature. The Boltzmann distribution of law, indicates that high temperature makes molecules gain high energy contents (pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ja). In order to measure the reaction rate, the scientists must use the same volume of water at three different starting temperatures: hot tap
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.
Pop Rocks and soda have a very interesting chemical reaction with each other. Soda is a very pressurized drink that has carbon dioxide in it. Carbon dioxide is a pressurized chemical. When it is shaken, it fizzes, and causes pressure, and overflows releasing the carbon dioxide. It is similar to the Pop Rocks.
If I had a chance to do this experiment once again. I would improve this experiment by actually testing, whether temperature affects the rate of reaction of the alka seltzer tablet, by having the water be hot, warm and cold, and determine at which temperate does the tablet dissolve faster. I could also change the amount of water I used during the experiment, as I only used 100ml of water in a 400ml beaker. I would also change the temperate of the room. A further investigation can study how temperature affects the rate of reaction between water and alka seltzer tablets.
Introduction The intent of this experiment is to understand how hot and cold water interact with each other by combining clear hot water and black ice cold water. I hope to learn more about how hot and cold water interact with each other. As of now, I know that cold water is denser than hot water. Knowing this I formed my hypothesis.
Materials 1 calibrated thermometer, 1 scale that reads mass, 2 Styrofoam cups, 1 small lead sinker, boiling water in a beaker, 1 pair of kitchen tongs, 1 small cooking pot, stove top, distilled water, and 1 pair of safety goggles (I did not use a cork stopper). III. Procedure First, the beaker
Place the the beaker onto a hot plate that is on a low heat setting (about setting 3). Every 5 minutes for 20 minutes, measure the circumference of the balloon and record it in Data Table A. You can measure the circumference of the balloon by looping a piece of string around it then using a ruler to measure the string’s length. Record the data in the data
Title: THE BALLOON INFLATION REACTION Introduction: Chemistry is one thing that makes us understand and gives us reasons of why certain reactions gives certain results. In this experiment we will be illustrating the reaction between baking powder and vinegar and see what happens to the balloon that is attached to it. Hypothetically the reaction of the vinegar and baking powder will produce carbon dioxide which will inflate the balloon. If the more vinegar may happen that when more vinegar is added to the baking powder it may produce more carbon dioxide thus the balloons diameter increases.
