Inventiveness

Did you ever wonder why rocks dissolve over generations or why chalk disappears in certain liquids Well so did I until I came up with an inventive experiment to figure it out. I wanted to figure out why an acid would react with a base. I had to think of a way to demonstrate this. However, this experiment obviously couldn?t involve rocks dissolving because I didn?t want to wait for generations to get results. I did this experiment in under a week and figured out why an acid dissolves a base.
Erosion is a natural process by which acidic rain degrades solid objects on the ground. I realized that demonstrating erosion would be nearly impossible because it would take a long time. However, it is possible to show how something acidic can degrade a solid object when exposed to it over a period of time. I thought of using hydrochloric acid but then decided that HCl was too acidic and it would not prove my point. Instead I decided to use lemon juice, vinegar and pure water for a control. The solid object I was going to use was chalk. I started the experiment by placing three identical pieces of chalk
