I’m working on a chemistry writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Our stomachs contain a solution of roughly 0.03 M HCl. The burning sensation associated with heartburn is a result of the acid in the stomach reaching the esophagus that is not protected from the corrosive effects of stomach acid. When we experience heartburn we take antacids, of which the most common antacid is calcium carbonate. write a page describing the reaction of calcium carbonate with the HCl in our stomach. What might cause belching when we take antacids?
