Introduction
This experiment was designed to investigate and compare the rates at which different aspirin tablets dissolve in both Water (H2O [representing saliva]) and Hydrochloric Acid (HCl [representing the stomach’s acid]). The amount of Water and Hydrochloric Acid will be kept constant between tablets, and tests.
Aim

The dissolving tablet will dissolve the fastest in both water and Hydrochloric Acid as this tablet is designed to quickly dissolve in liquid.
The capsule will soften but not completely dissolve in the water, however will dissolve in the Hydrochloric Acid.
The Tablet will slowly dissolve in water, however more rapidly in Hydrochloric Acid – however loosely comparable to the dissolving tablet.
