OBJECTIVE
Measure neutralizing capacity of a
commercial antacid
Determine which brand is most cost
effective
PROCEDURE NOTES
Part I: Standardizing NaOH
 Completed in Acid-Base Titration Lab
PROCEDURE NOTES
Part II: Titration with simulated Stomach
Acid
Use GRADUATED pipettes
Add bromophenol blue indicator
 Yellow → Blue
 Make sure there is no green tint!
PROCEDURE NOTES
Part III: Stomach acid/Antacid Reaction
Record all pertinent information from packaging
Use GRADUATED pipets
GENTLY heat
 Heat no higher than 3
 Some solids may remain
Keep track of the # of pipets added
PROCEDURE NOTES
Part IV: Neutralizing excess Stomach Acid
Use GRADUATED pipets
Add bromophenol blue indicator
 Yellow → Blue
 Make sure there is no green tint!
WASTE
Titrated solutions → dispose in the sink
Excess NaOH → place in large carboy
RISK ASSESSMENT
Hydrochloric Acid
 Danger
 Inhalation Hazard
 Corrosive
Sodium Hydroxide
 Danger
 Inhalation Hazard
 Corrosive
CALCULATIONS
Total Moles of HCl added to antacid:
moles=M x V
V= (total number of pipets used)
1 Pipet = 25.00 mL
