Question #1

Antacid
Volume NaOH used in back-titration (mL)
Volume NaOH used in back-titration (L)
Moles NaOH used in back-titration
Maalox
24.1 mL

Tums
22.4 mL

Mylanta

Maalox

20.0 g

Tums

21.0 g

Mylanta

18.0 g

CVS

Based on the values you calculated above, which antacid is the strongest / weakest on a by-weight (mass) basis? Please explain.

Question #3

What might you have used in the above experiment in order to see a visible color change in the solution? At what pH would the solution have been neutral?

Question #4

If you had walked into the lab, only to discover that you only had 0.1 M sulfuric acid available to run you tests, how might this have affected your calculations? Why?

Question #5

Balance the following reaction.

Al(OH)3 + HCl  AlCl3 + H2O

Question #6
