How much Lemon Juice should I use?
« on: 02/12/2007 15:17:37 »
I'm doing this science project for science fair and its test which antacids work the best. I'm using 750 milligram antacid tablets. Now all I need to know is the amount of lemon juice to use. I can't seem to think of an amount that will work.

Peppermint tea and peppermint oil by far the best antacid.

Hydrochloric acid would be more appropriate in your study. Lemon juice has an alkalising effect on the stomach so probably not a good test.

From the Internet of course, there are lots of suppliers online so do a search and find a chemical supplier near to where you live, or ask a local school science teacher for some. research the dilution to equal the acid in the gut.
