When dissolved in water Alka-Seltzer releases the antacid sodium citrate which reduces the amount of acid in the solution. Sodium citrate acts as buffer by neutralizing the stomach acid. A1 Enoch Kaun at Cary University conducted a similar experiment and dissolved the tablet into 3 different solutions- Sprite, water, and vinegar. It was discovered that Alka-Seltzer dissolved fastest in water and slowest in the Sprite. In another experiment
A binding material can be separated by dissolving the tablet in ether since three active ingredients are soluble. Then, aqueous K2HPO4 and KOH are used to extract the ether solution with the conjugate base of the Aspirin layer and the conjugate base of the Acetaminophen, respectively. The caffeine can be isolated from the left over layer by evaporating the ether. Two separated solutions form solid by acidifying with HCl and the solid residue can be collected by vacuum filtration. According to the Revell's lab experiment, aspirin, acetaminophen, caffeine recoveries are 60% or higher, <10% and <5%, respectively.
It binds with starch so the more starch, the darker the solution was. We also used a blank solution with no starch to set the spectrometer to zero. The spectrometer was used to compare the absorbency of the starch in the control solutions and the non-control solutions over time. Amylase was the last solution added to start the initial breakdown of the starch. Adding it at one minute intervals allowed the students to see how much starch the amylase was actually breaking down over time.
C. Write a balanced equation for the neutralization of acetic acid with NaOH. HC2H302+NaOHNaC2H302+H20 D. How would your results have differed if the tip of the burette was not filled with sodiumhydroxide before the initial volume reading was recorded? It would have shown more NaOH then there actually was resulting in there
For the difference in quality between tap water and bottled water, I believe that the bottled water, in this case Dasani and Fiji, will be a lot purer and not have as many contaminants than the municipal tap water. Abstract In this experiment the quality and contamination level of groundwater and bottled water were tested. The first thing I observed was the effects pollutants have on water. The pollutants used were bleach, cooking oil, and vinegar. I predict that bleach will have the most negative effect on the water, particularly when it comes to the hazardous effect it can produce if someone were to consume it.
Use a new glucose strip and record Data: Conclusion: According to my data, pH levels do, in fact, affect the results of Lactex. I say this because in my experiment, pre-enzyme, my solutions were all negative except for the soda. I used the test strips to determine if they were negative or positive solutions. After I put in the enzyme, Lactex, my results changed. Vinegar, Antacid, and Soap all became positive solutions after I put in the enzyme.
Data: Data Table 1 | | | Rubbing Alcohol Trial # | Boiling Point | Percent Error | 1 | 79.5 C | 3.52% | 2 | 84.0 C | 1.90% | 3 | 83.5 C | 1.30% | Data Table 2 | | | | Acetamide Trial # | Melting Point | Freezing Point | Percent Error (Melting Point) | 1 | 79.5 C | 57.5 C | 3.50% | 2 | 80.5 C | 59.5 C | 0.60% | 3 | 78.0 C | 61.0 C | 3.70% | Observations: It was observed that thermometer placement could affect the readings in the water bath. I ended up holding the test tube assembly to where the bottom of the test tube was not touching the bottom of the beaker to ensure better readings. Also, when substances recrystallize, I am not sure whether to take a reading when the substance has full crystallized or begun to so results could be fairly inaccurate. Questions: A. Why is it useful
The purpose of washing the test tubes thoroughly is so the chemicals don’t cross contaminate and affect the outcome of another section of the lab. Hypothesis: 1. If a substance contains lipids then when rubbed onto a paper bag a transparent or opaque spot will appear. 2. Is a substance contains starches then when iodine solution is added to the substance it will change from yellow-brown to blue-black.
The freezing point depression has some limitations and factors which affect to what extent the freezing point of the solvent will be decreased. One major limitation is the choice of the solute to be dissolved in the solvent because the solute must be able to dissolve sufficiently to lower the freezing point of the solvent. The solute must be soluble in the solvent in order to form a homogenous mixture. A few experiments with the unknown and different solutes will tell you what kind of properties the substance has and what substances will dissolve in it. Also, there is a limit of how much solute you can put in the solvent and you should not exceed that certain percentage.
