The students are looking extra academic in their chemistry goggles!  Today they determined the mass of calcium carbonate in Tums tablets by reacting the tablets with hydrochloric acid.  They measured the amount of carbon dixide gas that was emitted and used stoichiometry to calculate the amount of CaCO3.  Just scholars being scholars!
