I studied the effectiveness of antacids in vinegar to determine the best heartburn-relieving antacid. I hypothesized that one antacid will be superior at lowering vinegar's pH than others. Firstly, I poured out vinegar. After measuring its pH, I added one antacid dose. I dissolved it, measured the pH and repeated this for different antacid doses. Alka-Seltzer and Tums emerged as superior antacids. Alka-Seltzer is most effective in double and triple doses, while Tums is best for single doses. This benefits society because pregnant women will know which antacid to consume. This allows pregnant women to save money and stop pain.
